* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Arguably the main reason why Carly was overlooked prior to the release of ''E•MO•TION'', after the monster hit that was ''Call Me Maybe'' listeners wrote her off as a OneHitWonder trying to make a CareerResurrection, not helping matters was that ''I Really Like You'' the lead single of ''E•MO•TION'' being a perceived as a rehash of ''Call Me Maybe''. Though well after release it's not uncommon to hear new fans admitting that was a mistake.

Added DiffLines:

* SleeperHit: While not necessarily a hit, the CultClassic status of ''E•MO•TION'' could be seen as this. On release ''E•MO•TION'' listeners pretty much wrote Carly off as the 'Call Me Maybe girl trying to make a comeback', however a combination of very positive word of mouth (or people forcing their friends to listen to ''E•MO•TION''), critical acclaim and later on the MemeticMutation such as ''Run Away With Meme'' helped spread the popularity of ''E•MO•TION'' far and wide across the internet to end up becoming one of 2015 most talked about music releases.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The guy she interested in "Call Me Maybe" has no line of dialogue or lyrics but the fact that he is gay made Carly has quite a PeripheryDemographic with gay men.

** ''E•MO•TION: Side B'' gets reviews that are somewhere between this and EvenBetterSequel. Not bad for an EP.

** ''E•MO•TION: Side B'' gets reviews that are somewhere between this and EvenBetterSequel. EvenBetterSequel; Metacritic gave it an 80 (compared to the original's 77) and it was on quite a few critics' short list for one of the best albums of the year. Not bad for an EP.
