“Is this too much?” Carly Rae Jepsen asks breathlessly over and over again in her latest single. Our answer? A resounding, “No, never.”
“Too Much” has been released just ahead of the Canadian pop star’s fourth studio album, Dedicated, which is out on May 17 via School Boy/Interscope Records. Previous singles from the record, including “Now That I Found You” and “No Drug Like Me,” have set a promising precedent for her latest effort, with slick production that doesn’t undercut Jepsen’s natural talent. As always, her songs are dance-able, cry-able and deliciously cathartic.
On this latest track, Jepsen sounds like she’s simply bursting with emotion as she wonders if she’s thinking, drinking and loving too much over a bouncing drum machine beat. In a culture where describing someone as “a little much” is a not-so-subtle dis, CRJ refreshingly revels in exuberance.
