Carly Rae Jepsen is getting ready to make a name for herself. After placing third on 'Canadian Idol' in 2007, the British Columbia-born singer has become a rising star in Canada and it was announced this year that she has been signed to Justin Bieber's label. 'Call Me Maybe' is the first single off her second studio album titled 'Curiosity' and is the first song by a Canadian artist to reach the top of the digital charts since Bieber's hit 'Baby.'
The song's lyrics play as a flirty love note to a secret crush. Jepsen starts out by proclaiming, "I trade my soul for a wish / Pennies and dimes for a kiss / I wasn't looking for this." She makes it clear that the boy she's targeting is the object of her affections as, "And all the other boys, try to chase me / But here's my number, so call me, maybe?" Jepsen appears in the music video of the song by trying to win the attention of her neighbor but fails in doing so. A video spoof was posted on Twitter by Big Time Rush member Carlos Pena Jr. which included appearances by Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale and Big Time Rush. The spoof video has received over 18 million views, more than the actual music video.
