The song begins on the slower side but slowly builds into a lovable, disco-esque dance anthem. It captures perfectly the glittering and bubbly vibe Jepsen is known for and leaves us longing for more!
As expected, the song is synth-heavy, has a catchy-as-ever hook, and is the perfect anthem for the beginning of the summer season.
Some fans jokingly wished that the song was about the indie genius Julien Baker, and to everyone’s excitement, Baker was more than happy to play along.

Unfortunately, a collab between the two leading ladies is still only wishful thinking.
“Julien” will be the leading track off Dedicated, out May 17. The album follows 2015’s Emotion , and we have butterflies just thinking about it!
