Double Release! Carly Rae Jepsen Drops “Now That I Found You” & “No Drug Like Me”
What’s better than getting one new incandescent banger from Carly Rae Jepsen? The answer to that question would be getting two. And we’re in luck. Why? Because today (February 27) the “Run Away With Me” legend ended our mid-week slump by gracing us with dual singles “Now That I Found You” and “No Drug Like Me.” Following the release of last year’s (tragically underrated) “Party For One,” these act as singles two and three off the hitmaker’s forthcoming LP. And, true to form, they’re sugary sweet anthems that deserve so much love.
The former features production from Captain Cuts and some cute, romantic lyrics over electro-kissed beats. “Don’t give it up, don’t say it hurts. ‘Cause there’s nothing like this feeling, baby. Now that I found you, I want it all,” she coos on the chorus. Meanwhile, the latter is produced by John Hill and Jordan Palmer and is equally infectious. “And if you make me feel in love then I’ll blossom for you. If you make me open up I’ll tell only the truth,” she vows to a new lover. “You ain’t tried no drug like me.” Both sound like hits and certainly leave me wanting to hear even more off the album.
CRJ opened up about her latest bops in a press release. “’Now That I Found You’ is about the high you get when a new love starts to change your life. It’s like the rush, rush, rush is better than any drug,” she explained. “Which leads me to ‘No Drug Like Me” which is a promise I made to love in general. That when the good stuff lands my way I’ll always try to be vulnerable and brave and show all of myself – ‘If you make me feel in love then I’ll blossom for you.’”
