Rolling Stone has called E·MO·TION a “pop masterclass,” whileNew York magazine raves that it is “rapturous, hook-filled…as big and churning as tidal waves…a joyful freedom from the pop game’s stuffy rules.” The New York Times notes that E·MO·TION is “brimming with potential radio singles ripe for group sing-alongs.” Two of those singles have already been released, “Run Away With Me” and “I Really Like You.” The latter became a global Top 40 hit, and its video is Vevo Certified with over 100 million views.
E·MO·TION is the follow-up to Jepsen’s U.S. debut album Kiss, which featured her blockbuster break-out hit “Call Me Maybe.” The single climbed to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in over 47 countries and has sold over 18 million singles worldwide to date. It earned Jepsen 2012 GRAMMY nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year.
