The summer just got its official anthem.
"Good Time" sees two pop juggernauts—Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen—come together for an uplifting, undeniable, and unforgettable ode to having fun. A shimmering keyboard shines at the beginning of the song before sliding into a handclap- and bass-driven verse. Owl City croons about a "Prince song" stuck in his head and sleeping in his clothes before announcing, "It's always a good time".
He's not kidding. This jam is a blast especially as Jepsen pristinely delivers the bridge and the immediately infectious refrain. The songstress playfully sings about dropping her phone in the pool before upping the energy on the massive chant. Following up "Call Me Maybe"—one of the best pop songs ever, no joke—Jepsen dynamically shows the range of her incredible voice, covering an entire spectrum here. This completely solidifies her spot at the top.
Meanwhile, "Good Time" also illuminates another facet of Owl City and why he rules. Talk about a good time... listen via Owl City's Soundcloud.
