WATCH: Carly Rae Jepsen 'Call Me Maybe'
You've no doubt heard the song "Call Me Maybe"—it's all over the radio and in the clubs right now— but it's from Carly Rae Jepsen, a young Canadian recording artist and singer/songwriter who placed third in the fifth season of Canadian Idol. The song is from Jepsen's second album, Curiosity, which came out in February. It's shooting up the charts and you can see how significant that is for a Canadian artist by reading her Wikipedia page.
On the same day as the record's release, lesbian-looking Justin Bieber entered the story and announced that Jepsen signed with Schoolboy Records, the label his manager runs. Then he tweeted out to his fans to watch this video, presumably because he loved it, and it's now the hottest thing going. Good for her!
So is "Call Me Maybe" a good video? YES! You've got the fun, incredibly danceable song, with a vid that offers a slightly camp feel, and a dreamy dude with rock hard abs who is the object of Jepsen's attention. Check it out, all the way to the end for a sexy, surprising twist. You'll be glad you did.
