"All That" is a song recorded by Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen for her third studio album, Emotion (2015), included as its fifth track.[2] It was written by Jepsen, Ariel Rechtshaid and Dev Hynes, with the latter two also handling production.

Upon its release, "All That" was praised for the 1980s influence in the song.[3][4] Jepsen debuted the song at Saturday Night Live on 4 April 2015 and it became available to digital retailers the next day on 5 April 2015, as the record's first promotional single.

Background[edit]

Jepsen began combing through Dev Hynes' discography after becoming infatuated with "Losing You" by Solange, to which she found his name listed in its production credits.[5] Jepsen sought to work with him, stating she was a fan, which Hynes hesitated to believe. He was eventually "won over" by Jepsen's demonstration of her vocal ability and work ethic, and credited her with genuine intentions of "[developing] a new aesthetic" versus pursuing "Pitchfork-approved artists" for the sake of indie credibility.[6] The pair worked in a Chelsea studio between Jepsen's Cinderella performances.[citation needed] Jepsen was sent a demo of "All That" where she wrote the bridge and produced the vocals herself, and Ariel Rechtshaid was brought in for additional work.[citation needed]

Live performances[edit]

Jepsen served as musical guest during an episode of Saturday Night Live on 4 April 2015, and performed "I Really Like You" and "All That".[7]

Critical reception[edit]

Many critics noted Prince's influence on "All That".

Pitchfork Media awarded "All That" their "Best New Track" feature, calling the song's conclusion a "tour de force climax". They add that the chorus has "innocence set against its absence" and makes "finding a friend feels like a profound step beyond becoming lovers".[8]
