Carly Rae Jepsen
2015 – Pop
Interscope Records / School Boy
Since I only knew one song from Carly, “Call Me Maybe”, I was a little doubtful about this album. Although the song was a complete success, the sixth time you listen to it, it sounds annoying. But I won’t lie and say that Emotion didn’t surprise me.
The album is extremely competent, a true pop that did not listen to in time. Over the 12 tracks, we see no negative message, just the preaching of love, and in the end, a great plot twist, self-love.
Amid the strategically written tracks and gimmicks (in a good way) and the electric instrumentals that don’t sound like YouTube’s opening song, Carly builds a positive message about love, which for the most part seemed to be just a statement. But for someone, the lyrics showed an intense and passionate self-love.
Simply put, this album is great, it made me extremely excited to hear other Carly albums. I hope that in her other projects she will keep the unmistakable instrumental and her powerful voice.
