#17 Carly Rae Jepsen — q's top 20 albums of 2015
All month we'll be counting down the top 20 albums of 2015 — our annual list of must-hear albums.
Today, we start with a question: How do you top one of the biggest songs of the past decade?
Do you go all in with the same formula, or take a break, then hit it from a totally different angle?
Canadian pop wonder Carly Rae Jepsen did the latter, veering far away from Call Me Maybe with her new record, Emotion. It was a risky move that paid off. The deep synths, the Madonna-esque beats, the infectious hooks ... it's a surprising and bold return for an artist many had written off.
