Carly Rae Jepsen goes vi­ral with new song ‘Cut to the Feel­ing’

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E - THE CANA­DIAN PRESS

Carly Rae Jepsen is giv­ing lis­ten­ers all the right emo­tions, yet again.

The Cana­dian pop singer, who rose to in­ter­na­tional fame with the megahit “Call Me Maybe,” re­leased the song “Cut to the Feel­ing” as a sin­gle on Fri­day to a rousing re­sponse.

Her name quickly be­came a trend­ing topic on Twit­ter in both the United States and Canada and some high-pro­file me­dia out­lets and tastemak­ers were tout­ing the song as a pos­si­ble “song of the sum­mer” can­di­date.

Jepsen’s last al­bum “Emo­tion,” was a hit with crit­ics and fans but lacked a smash sin­gle.

“Cut to the Feel­ing” might sound fa­mil­iar to view­ers who caught the an­i­mated film “Bal­le­rina” in Cana­dian the­atres ear­lier this year.

Jepsen con­trib­uted her voice to one of the char­ac­ters and sang two songs for the film. But nei­ther track was on the sound­track.

The Canada-France co-pro­duc­tion is be­ing re­named “Leap!” for its U.S. re­lease later this sum­mer.

Carly Rae Jepsen may just have the song of the sum­mer.
