Carly Rae Jepsen stopped by Apple Music’s Beats 1 on Thursday (Feb. 28) to talk about her two new songs, “Now That I Found You” and “No Drug Like Me.”
When asked by host Zane Lowe why she chose to release two songs at once, Jepsen said the new tracks are meant to show her range as an artist.
“I think that they are very different in nature,” she said. “[‘Now That I Found You’] is sort of quite high energy…and ‘No Drug’ is a little bit darker. You got this one opportunity with a single, to sort of to show what you’re doing lately, and I didn’t feel like one song was a proper representation of that. I wanted to sort of show the spectrum.”
After revealing that she’s recorded more than 200 songs for the new album — and teasing a duet with an unnamed male artist — the Canadian pop star shared a hilarious story involving herself, Seal and Michael Bolton on a private jet.
While en route to a charity gala, Carly had a rather unforgettable moment with the “Kiss From A Rose” singer.
“Fun fact, Seal ate an entire loaf of bread one slice at a time,” she said before adding, “It was the way it happened. You won’t understand. He opened the bread, he removed a piece, he closed the bread, he ate the whole piece, nothing on it. Then he did it all over again.”
What did Carly do as Seal downed an entire loaf of bread? Surreptitiously record a video, of course!
“It’s really easy,” she said. “You can take a secret video and pretend you’re texting and you just have the phone up. Everyone’s done that before.”
