Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Now That I Found You’ Is A Sugar Rush But ‘No Drug Like Me’ Takes The Cake

Written By Sam Murphy on 02/28/2019

Carly Rae Jepsen delivered two singles today Now That I Found You and No Drug Like Me and they both give us distinctly different sides to the Canadian cult hero.

Now That I Found You is straight-up CRJ. It’s a big, glossy pop anthem that’s going to soundtrack the forthcoming soundtrack of Queer Eye and it fulfils the brief. Joyous and unapologetic, it reminds us of Emotion cuts like I Really Like You.

For fans of Jepsen’s more left-centred work though, you’re likely going to gravitate towards the far wonkier No Drug Like Me. It’s a wobbly, ’80s-leaning bop that reminds us of the sort of muted production she offered up on All That or Warm Blood. 

Produced by John Hill and Jordan Palmer, the warm production gives space for her surprisingly multi-faceted voice to shine through.

While we’ll give No Drug Like Me the crown this time around, if she’s able to offer up both these sides on the forthcoming album you can sign us up immediately.
