Carly Rae Jepsen approaches the cliché idea of a perfect love in her album “Kiss,” that gives girls hope for a fairy-tale relationship. Even when it comes to breaking up, her song “Turn Me Up” remains optimistic. Instead, she suggests it’s just the next chapter of her life in an affirmative manner. Jepsen’s hit single “Call Me Maybe” encourages females to speak up if they see an attractive person, rather than letting the chance slip away. Overall, Jepsen’s “Kiss” is clean, powerful, and positive; it stands as a guide for younger ladies to be optimistic when it comes to love, seeing downturns as a door to new opportunities.
