Wow! I can’t believe I just typed that headline. For years, I thought Carly Rae Jepsen was my little musical secret and now, thanks to a ridiculously catchy song called Call Me Maybe, she’s become a huge, huge star. And I couldn’t be happier. Today, the Globe and Mail declared that it was the song of the summer.
On Sunday, she performed at the Billboard Awards and it went off perfectly. It was funny to see that she has backup dancers now, but that’s likely the show’s producers influence more than hers.
I hope this song continues to lead to big things for Carly Rae, I’m even more hopeful that she doesn’t become a one hit wonder in the states, a song that popular could mean trouble, so let’s keep our fingers crossed. My guess is that being on Justin Bieber’s label will keep her safe, plus she’s riding the high of good and wholesome pop music idols like Bieber, Selena Gomez and One Direction.
Judging by this performance, I think she’ll be just fine!
