Carly Rae Jepsen Announces New Single “Let’s Be Friends (Not Really Though)”
All of a sudden, 2020 is looking up! Carly Rae Jepsen will kick off the new decade by releasing a new song called “Let’s Be Friends (Not Really Though)” on Friday (February 7). She finally unveiled the title and artwork on social media after teasing with a series of cute pics. It’s unclear if this is the start of an entirely new era or the first taste of Dedicated: Side B. I’m leaning towards the latter because CRJ is a woman of her word, and she did promise us an album of songs that didn’t make the original tracklist.
“I have every intention of doing that and releasing a part two,” the Canadian pop icon told me in May, 2019. “I think that’s the fun with having this much time to record an album. It gives you a little bit of perspective on what should come first and what should come second. It was easier to narrow down the first part because I knew was going to get to share a lot more songs.” As any respectable stan will tell you, Emotion: Side B contains some of CRJ’s best songs. Which makes the prospect of more unreleased material very, very exciting.
