Billboard puts Party For One at #58 in their year end list:
Carly Rae Jepsen has standards, damn it, and she won’t settle for anything less than the kind of love she fought for in last year’s “Cut to the Feeling” or the butterflies that made 2012’s “Call Me Maybe” such a relatable smash. With “Party For One,” the first taste of her highly anticipated Emotion follow-up, Jepsen is all about literal and figurative self-love: She’d rather dance alone and make love to herself than waste another minute with a person who isn’t interested on getting on her beat. It’s their loss, but definitely our gain. — H.H.
