Saturday Night Live really likes Carly Rae Jepsen. Last night, she made her debut on the show.

Jepsen kicked things off with her latest single “I Really Like You,” sans Tom Hanks unfortunately.

Later, Jepsen debuted a new song called “All That” with help from producer Ariel Rechstaid on bass and Dev Hynes on guitar.

The new track, which she called “My heart song of the album” on Twitter, has a bit of a ’80s feel. “Just let me in your arms,” she sings sweetly. “Show me if you want me, if I’m all that.”
