Carly Rae Jepsen gets E·MO·TIONal at the Plaza Live Monday night


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?
