There couldn’t have been a better time for the Canadian pop queen to drop her latest album “Dedicated Side B”. As Fans were speculating the release of another “Side B” following the one year anniversary of Dedicated, the British Colombian superstar teases at the idea with her Twitter video showcasing the album title in different animated type faces. By the end of it, the letters flicker, with the B left and fans full of excitement.
In true Jepsen fashion, the multi-award winning pop artist followed up on Instagram and Twitter and left the fans wanting more. Right after Jepsen’s announcement, she went trending on Twitter as fans were all anticipating the release of Jepsen’s newest project. Just like the success of 2016’s E•mo•tion Side B, this feels more like a continuation of 2019’s Dedicated, rather than a collection of B-side tracks. This time, Jepsen offers tracks like “Solo” and “Let’s Sort the Whole Thing Out” which is the perfect sound for all Living-room dancers. She offers something for everyone, need your summer fun time track, she has it. Need your bubbly pop love song, she has it. Need your chill vibe bop, she has it. Go stream Dedicated Side B here.
On Instagram she wrote “New tunes for your blues. If this helps in any small way - I’m relieved. Sending you all my love and sharing dis damn side B I’ve been storing in my cheeks.”
Just Like Jepsen’s previous “B-side” Discography, the albums offer much more than what the name leads on, as this could be its own stand-alone album. Jepsen mixes it up with her Eighties-styled synth-pop mashed up with a dance/bubble-gum pop sound. Topped off with Jepsen’s Lovestruck chorus and you have the perfect summer melody or in this case the perfect living room dance session. For those of you looking for a track to chillout to, give “Now I don’t hate California After all” or “Felt This Way” as it’s a shift to a slowed down tone but still has that Jepsen sound. This is the love letter album, Jepsen had in the works for the fans and it couldn’t of came at a better time.
This album has shown tremendous growth for Jepsen and as an artist as well as solidifying her style as a synth-pop artist. It only looks bright from here and I can’t wait to see her next project. Be sure to check out “Dedicated Side B”.
