It’s been three years since “Call Me Maybe” the infectious hit by Canadian singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen—that spawned millions of parodies, including the U.S. Olympic Swim Team, a hot college baseball team and even President Obama. Now she’s back with another catchy hit, “I Really Like You”, that’s sure to really really be stuck in your head for the rest of eternity.

Carly Rae proves she’s no one-hit wonder (she is under the same management as Justin Bieber), and when TIME is one of the first outlets to break the news, you know it’s a BFD.

At 29, Carly Rae’s another twenty-something just like us—stuck in a high school dream and crushing on a guy who can’t seem to return the feelings (and then breaking into an ‘80s dance party—or maybe that’s just me.

Is the song a nod to the guy who turned her down in “Call Me Maybe”? Girl can’t take a hint that even though she says, “I Really Like You”, she can’t seem to put two and two together…

Listen to Carly Rae Jepsen’s new crush-worthy bubblegum anthem below:



Hannah Gettleman is a bubbly twenty-something living in Chicago. She graduated in 2012 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Journalism. Don't tell her that print is dying--she's already made the switch to public relations. As a Midwest girl, winter happens approximately 80% of the year, so she knows a thing or two about a good pair of snow boots. She lives for summer weather (even though she can never tan), Boy Meets World reruns, and an unhealthy addiction to dark chocolate and online shopping. She's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, even though she's well aware the Cubs always end up in last place every year.
