Carly Rae Jepsen's "I Really Like You": Listen To The First Great Pop Single Of 2015

Three years ago, Carly Rae Jepsen owned the spring and summer airwaves with her inescapable radio behemoth "Call Me Maybe" (and, to a lesser extent, the Owl City pair-up "Good Time"). The Canadian singer's first US album Kiss was largely ignored, however, and that's a shame — because from opening track "Tiny Little Bows" and onward, it was a pretty solid collection of pop.

Cut to now, and Carly Rae is releasing her brand new single "I Really Like You" this coming Tuesday (March 2). The song is basically the best Top 40-leaning thing we've heard in this first quarter of the year, and if you don't believe me, then listen below.

Now do you believe me?
