Pop songstress Carly Rae Jepsen sat down with Consequence at Mad Cool Festival 2022 for a conversation about her busy festival season, 2022 goals, and what fans can expect regarding new music.

The “Western Wind” singer — whose set was packed with her smashes like “I Really Like You,” “I Want You in My Room,” and “Now That I Found You” — has been busy on the festival circuit this year: Following appearances at Coachella and participation in Jack Antonoff’s Bonnaroo Superjam, Madrid became the latest city to welcome Jepsen and her string of pop hits. The Madrid crowd, in particular, went wild for “Call Me Maybe,” the song that put Jepsen on the map for most listeners.

“I wrote down a New Year’s resolution to be present and enjoy everything,” she shares. “I want everything to be fun and enjoyable, and feel like I’ve arrived at that part, and want to keep going.”
