Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Too Much’ Is An Exhilarating Celebration Of Excess

Carly Rae Jepsen‘s new album Dedicated is out next week. Ahead of the release, the Canadian singer-songwriter has shared another new single off the album.

This is Carly Rae Jepsen, so of course “Too Much” is an exuberant pop anthem. But “Too Much” starts off a little slower. Over a minimalist synth beat, Jepsen wonders whether her penchant for drama and affection make her “bad for you.” But as the song ramps up into its exalting, maximalist chorus, it seems like Jepsen has reached a conclusion. She asks, “Is this too much?,” and maybe it is, but Carly Rae Jepsen is at her best when she’s feeling everything all at once.

Jepsen’s album Dedicated is out May 17 via Schoolboy/Interscope. Pre-order it here, and check out her upcoming tour dates below.
