All of a sudden this song has exploded onto the pop music scene, at least in Canada, and rumour has it, its working its way up the charts in the US. I don’t usually post mainstream pop on here, but I’ve got to say, Carly Rae Jepsen has released one of the catchiest tunes I’ve heard in a long time. And I’m so proud to say that Ms. Jepsen is Canadian-born, from Mission, B.C..
“Call Me Maybe” is from her new EP, Curiosity, and this girl can sing, too. There are some low-quality live performances on YouTube that show how she actually rocks out to this song live. You could also search some of her videos from her stint on Canadian Idol in 2007, in which she placed third.
Just last week, it was announced that Scooter Braun, signed Carly Rae Jepsen onto his label, Schoolboy Records, which also signed Justin Bieber two years ago. And only a few days ago, J-Biebs and some of his friends released an impromptu, fun home made video to Jepsen’s song, which you can check out here.
So, I’m sorry if you don’t like pop, but this song is so catchy I couldn’t resist…and I wanted to support a fellow Canadian. Congrats, Carly Rae Jepsen!
