Carly Rae Jepsen Proves She’s No One-Hit-Wonder With “Emotion,” The Perfect Pop Comeback Of The Decade

Just putting this out there… I totally discovered Carly Rae Jepsen. I know, this seems like another attempt for a music obsessed weirdo to shove how great they are at finding new music before it blows up in your face, but I definitely claim Carly Rae Jepsen. And I always have. I could call up one of my good friends right now. She’ll tell you. Before the mainstream success of “Call Me Maybe,” I recall spending nights listening to “Tug Of War” and “Sunshine On My Shoulder” from Carly Rae Jepsen’s first record. The first song I heard was the single “Bucket” from the Much Music Awards. It didn’t seem like much to claim to discover someone like Carly Rae Jepsen with the media already deeming her as a “one-hit-wonder” because she never seemed to be able to top “Call Me Maybe.” She had a moderate radio hit “Good Time” with Owl City, and it did alright, but was easily forgettable. The rest of her singles from Kiss failed to capture attention as well, making it appear that Carly Rae Jepsen was doomed to never return to the public’s eye. It made sense. “Call Me Maybe” was a one-of-a-kind hit that seemed to swallow up everything else around it. With this being the first Carly Rae Jepsen song for most of the world to hear, it kind of screwed over any chance you got to immediately outshine it with a follow-up. Honestly, Kiss was lacking potential hits anyway, so it would appear that Carly Rae Jepsen was doomed to be extinct by the next year. And for a while, she was. Nobody really thought they’d hear anything from her ever again. But then something unexpected happened...

Return of a pop star

I was remembering Carly Rae Jepsen by her most popular song of all time "Call Me Maybe" but now, after she's back in the music world with her new album named Dedicated, I think she's giving us more reasons to remember her by. The album Dedicated is Carly's fourth studio album and it represents a return in her music career. Dedicated was released on May 17th, 2019 following the speculations after the release of her most popular song of this album called "Party For One" on November 1st, 2018. Carly is, in my opinion, a singer who creates easily remembered singles with the vibe of careless dancing around your house while cleaning or vibe you get at high school parties. A lot of people call her 'a queen of pop music' and it seems like she's true a workaholic because she wrote over two hundred songs for this album because she wanted everything to be perfect and she admitted: “I rarely write a song and am like, ‘It’s done!' It’s sort of my passion and obsession in a way: late at night being like, ‘I found the lyric!’ I envy writers that are like, ‘I just wrote this and put it on the album.’ I’m like, ‘How do you sleep at night?!’” That sounds like she always gives 110% of herself into her albums and her fans definitely appreciate it. It's nice to see a songwriter and singer who takes so much care of her songs and wants them to send a message to the world, to her fans and to teach them something through fun dance songs.

Carly, You've Earned My Call With Dedicated.

It is a surprise for me that I have chosen Carly Rae Jepsen for this narrative. If I'm honest, I’m not really a fan of hers (until recently), and for a while I followed her track intermittently and superficially... Even so, it is wise to rectify, and what I am a fan of is of reinventing oneself, evolve and learn from mistakes (this is where the artist has won my heart), something that Carly has achieved with very good results with Dedicated, her fourth album published on May 17. Eight years have passed since her well-known ''Call me maybe'' became the hit of the year thanks to Justin Bieber, and Carly has come a long peculiar path of metamorphosis to reach who she is today: a totally renewed girl, different from the one that gave us her number and urged us to call her, although everything seemed a bit crazy. She became known on Canadian Idol, and already had an album on the market, Tug Of War (which doesn’t even need a mention), when her worldwide success appeared. Carly was already 26 years old when ''Call me maybe'' was released, a childish song pop-bubble-gum that gained immense popularity. It was played on radio over and over again and became the biggest hit of 2011. But it was a double-edged sword: despite the victory, our protagonist was typecast as a teen artist, but exceeded in a decade her fellow mates of the industry. And that is when everything began to crack: She released Kiss, her second album which was inspired from these pinky teen sounds, known for their ability to bore in large doses, and Carly bored the world, deflating quickly and getting the dreaded crown of a one-hit-wonder. What happened from here? Well, Jepsen knew how to transform from caterpillar to butterfly.

In An Ever Changing Pop Landscape, Carly Rae Jepsen’s E•MO•TION Still Packs A Punch

Much has changed since I first pressed play on “Run Away with Me”, the second single from Carly Rae Jepsen’s sorely underrated second album, E•MO•TION. Nostalgia has a way of making things seem better than they actually were, but looking back at 2015 feels like taking a trip to a parallel universe. Trump had yet to become President, the chaos of Brexit was still a year away, and pop music was undergoing something of an 80s revival. Justin Bieber had sown the seeds for tropical house to flourish in the mainstream with “What Do you Mean?”, the lead single from his critically lauded third album Purpose, which went on to receive two Grammy nominations for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album. With the infectiously catchy “Sorry” dominating radio waves the world over, suddenly it was cool to like pop music again, and I lost count of the number of people who found themselves professing a new found love for the Canadian megastar. Meanwhile, E•MO•TION arrived with little fanfare, perhaps owing to the fact that it was released three years after Jepsen found fame with what can arguably be described as one of the first viral music sensations, “Call Me Maybe”. To say that song was popular is of course an understatement, but rather than capitalize on its success, Jepsen took a backseat. Little did we know that behind the scenes, she was hard at work creating one of the best albums of this decade.

Tug Of War: The Hidden Folk-Pop Gem Of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Past

Before “Call Me Maybe,” Carly Rae Jepsen actually did exist. Crazy, right? Some people know she was on Canadian Idol for half a second, but many people don’t know that she actually released an album right after that in 2008, before she ever became a pop star. This album was a little ten-song record titled Tug of War, written almost entirely by Jepsen herself and produced by Vancouver-based songwriter and producer Ryan Stewart. Tug of War wasn’t exactly a commercial success: the album has only sold about 10,000 copies. Singles “Tug of War” and “Bucket” had moderate success on the Canadian charts, peaking at 36 and 32 respectively, with the title track even getting to No. 6 on the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart. But none of it was enough to launch her career in the way her team might have hoped, resulting in the complete rebrand with “Call Me Maybe” four years later, which we all know was a success. In recent years, Jepsen has become known for her unapologetic bubble-gum pop and her complete embrace of the 80’s inspired synth-pop sound. EMOTION has become a kind of cult favourite: little commercial success, but critical acclaim and intense worshiping by a particular pop-music community. She’s now releasing her fourth studio album Dedicated next month, which also easily falls in the bubble-gum pop genre. But even though she’s solidified her place in pop music, it’s important to take a look back to the past, before she was truly ‘Carly Rae Jepsen.’ Jepsen’s first record, Tug of War, meshes pop, folk and a little bit of country to create a cute little introduction to Jepsen’s song-writing and the inner workings of her mind.

Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe: A Monster Hit That Unleashes the Video Creativity of Folks All Around the World

When I was in high school, there was this female pop singer named Debbie Gibson who came “out of the blue” (yup, that was the title of her debut album) and released pop hit after pop hit – the kind which was frothy, fun and delightful – and it appealed to us teenagers then, because of the youthful energy the songs exude. A quarter of a century later, another female pop singer, again, comes out of the blue and comes up with a bubbly pop song that takes over the whole world. In 2012, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” was ubiquitous and everyone, and I mean everyone, had their own video version of that song. Even here in the Philippines, our own celebrities, and most ordinary folk, had their video version of the song – most of them funny, many absurd. The song and its viral videos were just inescapable. At least, at that moment in time, the world was at peace and was together enjoying one silly pop song. As for Debbie Gibson, her hits like “Only in My Dreams”, “Electric Youth”, and “Lost In Your Eyes” were popular with teenagers worldwide and created as much buzz for the singer and her songs – even if we only had MTV and VH1 to rely on those days. That is why when I think of Carly Rae Jepsen, I can’t help but compare her to Debbie Gibson, because of the similarity of the quality of the pop songs they composed. Yes, both singers are songwriters as well – so this is really their sound and their words – they are not manufactured pop products which are quite common among teenybopper musical acts.
