Carly Rae Jepsen ‘Runs Away’ With ‘Tonight Show’ Performance
The "I Really Like You" singer gifted Jimmy Fallon's audience with a performance of the sax-heavy, '80s-leaning "Run Away With Me," and if you're not yet aboard the Carly tRAEn, consider yourself an inevitable passenger.
In the clip above, while dressed in a 24-carat tuxedo jacket, Jepsen croons from behind a standing mic and proves the song benefits from an unfettered production. "Hold onto me, I never wanna let you go / Over the weekend, we can turn the world into gold," she fittingly poses. A pop star and a miner of precious metals...do the woman's talents know no bounds?
Jepsen told PopCrush in June that the song—her most recent single—holds a special place in her heart. "My favorite song…I’m really excited about ‘Run Away With Me,'" she shared.
She also said in a separate May interview that she has big plans for tomorrow.
"I’m going to hold that CD in my hand and then step on it," she said. "It’ll be so therapeutic. In honesty, it’s been the biggest project of my life. I’m very proud of it, but it’s a lot of blood, sweat and tears—even the songs that didn’t make it into this project. I don’t know if I’m going to cry or kiss it…or throw it out the window."
Check out the full performance above, share your thoughts and be sure to pick up a copy of Carly Rae's newest album tomorrow! If you're itching to watch her perform it again, she'll deliver a "Run Away With Me" encore tomorrow on TODAY.
