Carly Rae Jepsen's E.MO.TION was released five years ago today and it's being celebrated by fans around the globe.
Jepsen's record has travelled an unlikely path. It was initially labelled a flop after she failed to match the commercial success of Call Me Maybe but it gained mass critical acclaim. The album has since been named in a myriad of Best of 2010s list, hailed as being one of pop's defining moments.
Worked on with the likes of Ariel Rechtshaid, Dev Hynes, Greg Kurstin and Vampire Weeknd's Rostam Batmanglij, it's now considered to be a cult classic.
Jeppo is marking the occasion by dropping two new bonus tracks Never Get To Hold You and Love Again on streaming services. Fans are also debating their favourite songs from the record.
The opening song Run Away With Me is getting plenty of love while the title track and Your Type are also getting plenty of love.

Emotion turning 5 years old feels so weird to me.
I discovered how much talent, creativity and fun her music is and how she isn't just a one-hit wonder.
So now I'm gonna stream one of the best pop records of the 2010's Thank you for this masterpiece Carly ??.
