* OneHitWonder: She is commonly called this; although she technically had two hits outside of Canada; the other hit, "Good Time," is a duet with Owl City, and it's he who gets first billing. "Call Me Maybe"'s view as a novelty song only makes things worse. She did attempt a CareerResurrection three years later with "I Really Like You" and "Run Away with Me", and while it was nowhere as big as "Call Me Maybe", it was quite successful, ''especially'' from a critical point of view.

** Half the songs on ''Emotion: Side B'' share names with KylieMinogue songs or albums. It's unknown whether this was an intentional {{shout out}} or a case of [[ClicheStorm generic song titles]].

** ''Emotion'' may have not set the charts on fire in America, but it did considerably worse in her home country of Canada. Its shown in her tour schedule for the album, too: In early 2016, she came off a well received and fairly successful headlining American tour of indie clubs and theaters, and went straight into being merely the opener for pop punk band Hedley on their tour of Canada.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Josh Ramsay of Marianas Trench appears in "Sour Candy".
*** Ramsay also wrote the music for "Call Me Maybe," and apparently still catches hell for it. He [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKIPh1w4s18 "Here's to the Zeros"]]:
--> So they say, 'where's the next hit, baby?' / God, how could I top "Call Me Maybe"?
** Jepsen herself appears in Music/OwlCity's "Good Time".
** TomHanks lip-syncs in the "I Really Like You" video.
