Carly Rae Jepsen Releases ‘Tonight I’m Getting Over You’ as Third Single
Get ready for another impossibly catchy Carly Rae Jepsen tune to get stuck in your head. The protege of fellow Canadian Justin Bieber has announced what her third single from ‘Kiss’ will be, and while it’s a bit of a jump from her previous releases, it still has her signature bubblegum flavor all over it.
Jepsen’s third single is ‘Tonight I’m Getting Over You,’ a breakup anthem that maintains the synths and hooks of her prior hits. The heavily banged cutie shuns a former lover (or perhaps shady friend with benefits), giving a kiss-off to end what sounded like a messy hot-and-cold romance.
She wails, “I wanna smash your fears / And get drunken off your tears / Don’t you share your smile with anyone else but me / I wanna touch your heart / I wanna crash it in my hands / Make you plead and cry as you give up all the lies / We’re not lovers / But more than friends / Put a flame to every single word you ever said / No more crying to get me through / I’ll keep dancing till the morning with somebody new / Tonight I’m getting over you.”
Even the cover art exhibits some tough girl imagery, featuring the normally twee starlet looking edgier than usual, rocking bedhead, smoky eyes and a generally more sophisticated look, despite sporting plain denim shorts and white tank. We like this look for CRJ, and hopefully will help her tracks post-’Call Me Maybe’ crossover into an adult audience since ‘This Kiss’ fizzled on the charts.
