Carly Rae Jepsen has revealed that her new single Tonight I'm Getting Over You was inspired by a real-life broken relationship.
Currently, the 27-year-old singer is dating musician Matthew Koma and they recently attended the Grammy Awards together.
She tells People magazine that writing the song enabled her to explore many sides of love in a 'more personal way' including her former 'hot and cold' romance.
"I hope you haven't experienced it, but I certainly have had that relationship that is on-again, off-again and good and bad,' she admitted.
"With this particular song, it was sort of that decision that even though [the relationship] is hot and cold, sometimes you've got to move on."
However, the singer says 'it's probably for the best,' that the person behind the song remains a mystery.
The new number is a departure from her famous bouncy pop hit Call Me Maybe, and the singer says it's made her feel more 'in the moment.'
"I think it's important to have a bit of a connection to a song that you sing, and there's going to be some grittiness behind it, because otherwise it doesn't come across as sincere,' Carly said.
'So I do think I tap into those memories in a certain way, but it doesn't make me feel sad. It just makes me feel a little contemplative."here to win an iPhone5!
