American pop-electro artist OWL CITY and “Call Me Maybe” internet sensation CARLY RAE JEPSEN vow to create a unique smash hit as they team up together for the teenybopper summer anthem, “Good Time”. The duet is the third single that Owl City has released in less than two months, following “Shooting Star” and “Dementia”, both lifted from his Shooting Star EP. According to Billboard.com, Owl City (Adam Young) worked with pop producers Emily Wright and frequent Rihanna collaborator Stargate for his upcoming album entitled “The Midsummer Station”. He is joined by Jepsen, the voice behind the undeniably catchy “Call Me Maybe,” for the album’s infectious first single, a track that could possibly be the next viral tune on the worldwide web.
The promising new single, which was just released to digital retailers last June 26, has already generated positive reviews:
“This is the PERFECT follow up tune to the catchiest song EVER, Call Me Maybe. Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen have meshed their musical talents, delivering a super summer SMASH of a jam in the form of Good Time!” ~ Perez Hilton
“We never would’ve guessed that Carly Rae Jepsen’s first single after her Internet anthem, “Call Me Maybe” would be a duet with Owl City. But get ready, because it’s happening and it’s actually pretty legit. If you recall, Owl City took the world by storm with his song “Fireflies,” and his collaboration with Carly is probably about to do the same thing.” ~ www.buzzworthy.mtv.com
“With the production-friendly voices of Owl City and Jepsen, the instantly hooky chorus, and the “Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh” refrain, “Good Time” goes down easier than a frozen margarita at a beachfront tiki bar.” ~ www.music-mix.ew.com
“Considering that Carly is the It Pop Star of the summer with her infectious #1 single “Call Me Maybe”, we wouldn’t be surprised if “Good Time” will be all over the radio for the rest of the season.” ~ www.idolator.com
That said, it’s just a matter of time until the song becomes the next internet anthem. In the meantime, let’s chill and have a ‘good time’ with Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen!
