Canadian pop singer Cary Rae Jepsen is on line 1, calling you back, and this time there’s no indecision — she really likes you.
And we really like her new single, ‘I Really Like You.”

Adds Jepsen in a presser: “Lyrically, it’s about that time in a relationship when it’s too soon to say ‘I love you,’ but you’re well past, ‘I like you’ and you’re at the ‘I really, really like you’ stage.”
