If you happened to have heard a chorus of gay screaming earlier, it's because singer and lonely-hearted twink bard Carly Rae Jepsen released two brand new songs on Wednesday. One of the songs, "Now That I Found You" was featured in the trailer for the upcoming third season of Netflix's Queer Eye. What was just a seconds-long snippet is now a fully-realized bop.
"Now That I Found You" is an interesting narrative thread, given that most of 2015's Emotion was about heartbreak. This song instead seems to be about finding a steady love rather than just a failed fling.
The second single Jepsen released is an 80s synth-inspired bop that, like Troye Sivan's "Bloom," is set to be a bottom anthem for the history books.
"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 / your head held high, hold on, baby / you ain't tried no drug like me," Jepsen croons.
The two new songs are the first official releases from Jepsen since her November 2018 single "Party for One," though Jepsen has yet to offer a timeframe for when she will offer a full-length follow up to 2015's Emotion, the album that established her as a gay icon.
