After Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe became a smash hit thanks to one of the catchiest choruses anyone's heard in a long, long time, the bubblegum pop singer his back with her highly anticipated second single Good Time, a collaboration with Fireflies singer Owl City.
And Jepsen fans can breathe a sigh of relief -- she doesn't stray far from the upbeat sound that catapulted her into fame, crafting a radio-friendly single that can easily turn into this summer's jam.
I mean ... who's going to hate on a song called "Good Time?"
So while the insanely short amount of time it took for Call Me Maybe to go viral and its love-hate nature right remind you of a certain Rebecca Black and her hit Friday, this is where the similarities end. Black's second single My Moment tanked thanks to an overly serious attempt to be legit, while Jepsen wisely seems to embrace the fun, candy color pop reputation that made her popular in the first place.
And you can hear a little bit of Katy Perry's California Gurls in this chorus can't you?
Check out the song below, and weigh in. Do you think Carly Rae Jepsen will be a one hit wonder?
