But never does her age interfere with what she's attempting to achieve here - unashamedly fun and happy-go-lucky pop. Anyone unsure need only see the single's accompanying music video, where the boy (man) she's after ultimately turns out to be gay. And while nothing quite matches its lighthearted simplicity, she comes remarkably close on multiple occasions.
Future single 'This Kiss' is the next best thing here; a bouncy, shimmering number about not-so-innocent love with a chorus including the long lost rhyme of "sentimental" with "detrimental" that proves Belinda Carlisle's career wasn't entirely in vain. The cutesy 'Tiny Little Bows' is also as sweet as its title suggests, though her genuine and un-gimmicky approach avoids it feeling sickly.
She even carries off sad pop on 'More Than A Memory' and 'Turn Me On' with a confidence that her musical hero Robyn would be proud of. In fact, it's only towards the finish and on the bonus tracks that she falls into the trap of trying to be current and follow the LMFAO trend. Thankfully, Jepsen's collection of traditional, feel-good pop has in fact kick-started a whole new one.
