"I Really Like You" is a song recorded by Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen for her third studio album, Emotion (2015). It was written by Jepsen, Jacob Kasher Hindlin, Peter Svensson, and Steve DaMar; and produced by Svensson. The song was released as the album's lead single on 2 March 2015.

The song's accompanying music video featured Tom Hanks and Justin Bieber, and was released 5 March 2015.

Writing and production

"I Really Like You" was written by Jepsen, Jacob Kasher Hindlin and Peter Svensson, and produced by the latter.[1] According to Jepsen, the song's lyrics are 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."[1]

Composition

Soraya Nadia McDonald of The Washington Post characterized "I Really Like You" as a synth-pop song, musically reminiscent of Jepsen's previous album Kiss (2012), 1980s music and Solange Knowles' 2012 EP True.[2]The Verges Emily Yoshida noted elements of 1980s and new wave.[3] Ryan Reed of Rolling Stone described the track as a "dance-pop number".[4] Musically, the song is written in the key of F major, with a tempo of 122 beats per minute. Jepsen's vocals span from G3 to D5.[5]

Critical reception

Jason Lipshutz of Billboard called the song "really (really) fun" and "a breathless 80's banger that comes back to [2012 single] "Call Me Maybe's" fixation on ultra-crisp percussion and blurted-out flirtation".[6]Idolator's Bianca Gracie described "I Really Like You" as "mind-blowing, fantastic, catchy-as-hell pop".[7]

Commercial performance

In Canada, "I Really Like You" debuted at number 14 on the Canadian Hot 100 issued for 21 March 2015, marking Jepsen's seventh top 40 hit in Canada.[8]

In the United States, "I Really Like You" debuted at number 48 on the Billboard Hot 100 on 21 March 2015, selling 38,000 copies in its first week.[9] It peaked at number 39 on 2 May 2015, marking Jepsen's third top 40 hit in the United States.[10][11][12]

In the United Kingdom, the song debuted and peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart on 3 May 2015 - for week ending date 9 May 2015 - a position it maintained for two consecutive weeks.[13][14]

Music video

The music video was directed by Peter Glanz. Jepsen filmed part of the song's music video on 16 February 2015, in front of the Mondrian Hotel in Manhattan alongside Tom Hanks, Justin Bieber and a troupe of dancers.

The video was released on 6 March 2015.[15]CBC Music's Nicolle Weeks described it as "a more affable version" of the music video for The Verve's "Bitter Sweet Symphony" (1997).[16] The music video has been rated as one of 10 Best Music Videos of 2015 (So Far) by the readers of Billboard.[17]
