Composition

"Your Type" is a midtempo synthpop and electropop love song influenced by 1980s music.[4][5][6] The ballad finds Jepsen expressing her interest in pursuing a romantic relationship with someone despite her belief that she is not their "type" and explores the concept of unrequited love.[6][7] During live performances, she revealed that the song was about a guy whom she fell for who she later finds out was gay, similar to what her single "Call Me Maybe"'s video was about.[8]

Music video

The video for "Your Type" was filmed in October 2015 under the direction of Gia Coppola and premiered November 3, 2015.[7][9] It begins with a voiceover introducing the story of Jepsen's character ("There was once a girl…") and then follows Jepsen as she gets mugged on a park bench, enters a nightclub, and performs karaoke.[9][10] During her performance, the video alternates between shots of a large, excited crowd and a nearly-empty bar, suggesting the former is Jepsen's fantasy of how the scene played out.[11] The video's plot has been described as a pseudo-Cinderella story.[9][10]

Live performances

On 1 May 2015, Jepsen performed "Your Type" at a show in Beijing, China. Jepsen performed the song at Late Night with Seth Meyers on 26 January 2016.
