With the success of ‘Call me maybe’, everyone has been waiting for Carly Rae Jepsen’s next hit. Fans received ‘Good time’, a duet with Owl City, very well but the track can’t be classified as her own.
‘This kiss’ is Carly’s newest track off her album ‘Kiss’, and will no doubt be a regularly played song on the radio. With an 80’s vibe and an upbeat tempo, the tune is very catchy and has the same ‘song about a boy’ message that was clear with ‘Call me maybe’.
Despite being more of a dance track, ‘This kiss’ doesn’t seem to deliver on the same level (that level being the fact that grown men actually enjoyed the previous song for a while and weren’t ashamed to admit it for some reason).
The target audience is the teenage, and probably pre-teenage, generation, and there is no doubt they will enjoy the beat and the seamless transitions from verse to chorus. But for anyone older, I cannot see this song producing the same effect as the previous single.
