You’re Invited to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Party For One”

Our queen reminds us it's okay to be single.

Sound the alarms, ’cause pop icon Carly Rae Jepsen has released another total bop, and we’re obsessed.

“Party For One,” the newest single from the 32-year-old Canadian songstress, dropped early this morning. Jepsen also debuted a music video for the track, which sees the “Cut to the Feeling” singer and an eclectic cast of super queer characters cope with being #SingleAF in different ways at the same hotel. (Fun fact: It was filmed right here in New York City.)

Crying, taking bubble baths, ordering takeout, dancing in your underwear, sporting raunchy lingerie, masturbating—you name it, it’s included, minus any shame. Because healing takes time and energy, y’all!

At the end of the video, the lights in the hotel go out, and the crew comes together in the hotel lobby for drinks and an obligatory dance party.

Watch the full video for “Party For One” below. Be warned, it will make you want to get up and dance. But, let’s be honest: After the firestorm of hellish headlines that was last week, is that really so bad?
