The Best Tracks of 2019, #8


8. Carly Rae Jepsen, “Now That I Found You”

On a terrific album that saw Carly Rae broadening her sound a little more, “Now That I Found You” was the one big, instant classic CRJ track. The arrangement falls right in her wheelhouse: tentative and sweet verses build to a chorus of euphoria and fireworks, blippy, glitchy passages shifting into the most fabulous house beats. It’s pure joy perfeclty encapsulated – sometimes that’s all you need in a song, and Carly Rae – who is becoming a more iconic pop singer every year –  knocks it clear out of the park.
