If pop music is rooted in chemistry, then there’s an elusive element on the Periodic Table called Jepsenium (Je), which transforms an ecstatic little summer jam into a full-blown pop juggernaut. Kady Rain’s got Jepsenium in her blood, and “R.A.D. Moves” is her “Call Me Maybe” — the sort of song that, if it hits, could enjoy a pop-chart shelf life measured in years, not weeks.
