Carly Rae Jepsen Gets Dreamy About Love in “Now That I Found You” & “No Drug Like Me”

Carly Rae Jepsen is back with two new songs. Following 2015’s critically acclaimed Emotion, the Canadian pop princess is gearing up for the release of her highly anticipated fourth studio album with “Now That I Found You” and “No Drug Like Me.”

“Now That I Found You” is a classic Carly pop confection. The upbeat dance track combines sweet lyrics along with a dream-like 80s synth-pop sound. The track was teased in a trailer for the upcoming season of Queer Eye on Netflix.

She sings, “Give me the words I want, baby, just say it // You know me way too well to keep it complicated // I don’t wanna hide my love // I don’t wanna waste it // But I can’t deny the moment when I taste it.” The track is dreamy and fun—everything you’d expect from the “Run Away With Me” songstress.

“No Drug Like Me” takes it a bit slower with a synthy mid-tempo beat but continues the lovestruck theme. “And If you make me feel in love then I’ll blossom for you // If you make me open up I’ll tell only the truth // When your mouth is running dry // Keep head high, hold on, baby // You ain’t tried no drug like me,” Jepsen sings with breathy vocals.

“’Now That I Found You’ is about the high you get when a new love starts to change your life,” Jepsen shared. “It’s like the rush, rush, rush is better than any drug. Which leads me to ‘No Drug Like Me,’ which is a promise I made to love in general. That when the good stuff lands my way I’ll always try to be vulnerable and brave and show all of myself.”

Along with last November’s lead single, “Party For One,” the romantic love songs “Now That I Found You” and “No Drug Like Me” will both appear on her upcoming album.
