Pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen might have started out waiting by the phone, but now she isn’t waiting for calls — she’s making them. Her career started off with the 2012 summertime single “Call Me Maybe,” a song so overplayed it was impossible to keep out of your head, but Jepsen has since matured into a versatile artist with a pop sound that goes beyond repetitive radio garbage. In 2014, she starred on Broadway in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, she appeared in Fox’s Grease: Live just a couple weeks ago and now she’s on tour performing songs from her new album, E·MO·TION
. Her new music is powerful and passionate, with a charm that comes from its classic ’80s pop sound. With infectious tunes and a fresh retro-dance vibe, does it actually sound so crazy to give Jepsen and chance and go see her, maybe?
