From Western Canada, Carly Rae Jepsen has been involved with music nearly her entire life. Though she made her debut in 2008 with the album, Tug of War, it wasn’t until her second effort, Kiss that she garnered nationwide attention. Her breakthrough record is comprised of several tracks including Call Me Maybe, This Kiss, Tonight I’m Getting Over You, and Good Time, the first of which quickly became her signature song. An overall success, it not only charted in the US, but also in Taiwan, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Japan, and New Zealand, among others.
From there, her third studio album, Emotion came out in June 2015. Inspired by music from the 80’s era, it was largely met with critical acclaim upon its release. Preceded by the single, I Really Like You, the project also gave rise to the tracks, Run Away with Me, Your Type, All That, Making the Most of the Night, LA Hallucinations, and When I Needed You. Performance-wise, the album entered the Billboard Top 200 at number 16 with 36,000 copies sold by the end of the year. In support of the release, Jepsen also embarked on the Gimmie Love Tour.
In addition to her three studio albums, she’s dropped three extended plays- Dear You, Curiosity, and Emotion: Side B, two of which went on to chart in the US. In 2016, the singer also contributed the song, All I Need is an Angel for the official soundtrack for Grease: Live!. Aside from her musical releases, she’s also headlined multiple tours (as briefly mentioned above)- for instance, she went on The Summer Kiss Tour in 2013 and The Gimmie Love Tour from 2015 to 2016. In addition to the ones she’s headlined, she has also opened for many artists including Justin Bieber, Hanson, and Hedley. Just recently, it announced that she’ll also be opening for Katy Perry’s 2018 The Witness: Tour
What has the singer-songwriter been up to recently? Though she hasn’t come out with any albums this year, she did release two singles- It Takes Two, and Cut to the Feeling, the former of which was a joint venture with Lil Yachty and Mike Will Made It. Adding to that, she has also guest appeared on the tracks, Runaways, and Hate That You Know Me. On television, Jepsen has recently also been featured on the talk shows, Today, and Entertainment Tonight.
