There are few pop stars with as strong a catalog as Carly Rae Jepsen. Her new release, Dedicated Side B, stands triumphantly against last year’s Dedicated, synth-soaked creations that feel much stronger than the “Side B” would have you believe. Much like 2016’s Emotion Side B (the companion to her critically heralded Emotion), the new set glistens with some of her best work.
“Comeback,” a collaboration with Jack Antonoff’s Bleachers side project, witnesses Jepsen reclaiming herself and the narrative. “I was thinking about making a comeback,” she whispers into your ear. Her velvety whispers are magic (as they nearly always are), and here, they dance as light beams across Antonoff’s plush sound waves.
