Does anyone know exactly when Carly Rae Jepsen became the voice of the summer? Because every single year, this chick comes out with an absolute banger, and this year, she does not disappoint. Jepsen has saved pop music once again with her new single, “Cut to the Feeling.”
We all know Jepsen’s original claim to fame comes from the summer of 2012 with “Call Me Maybe,” which was not only a banger, but a chart-topping single that year. Since then, the pop star has hit the charts almost every year according to Billboard. But can anything really, actually, truly ever live up to the first-time charm and catchy nature of “Call Me Maybe”? Let’s discuss.
Music-wise, the chorus is scream-worthy in every club across the world. And honestly, that’s about all I need to know for a Carly Rae Jepsen song. Can I yell as loud as possible with my girlfriends when that catchy chorus drops as hard as all her singles? Yes? Then “Cut to the Feeling” easily has “Call Me Maybe” potential.
And I’m not the only one who thinks so. Twitter is going wild over the princess of pop’s new song:
I WISH ANY DRUG, ORGASM, GOD, PARTY OR PERSON ON THIS GODDAMN PLANET HAD EVER MADE ME FEEL THE WAY CARLY RAE JEPSEN MAKES ME FEEL EVERY TIME

All that’s left is to wait with bated breath for the music video, and if that’s on par with the cute cat-and-mouse storyline of “Call Me Maybe,” then we’ve got a real contender on our hands. Carly Rae Jepsen’s new single, “Cut to the Feeling,” has just about everyone feeling the most positive of vibes. And with that, a happy summer to all, and to all a goodnight.
