Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen Take The Billboard Music Awards For Call Me Maybe 2011

"Call Me Maybe" is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen, taken from her first EP, Curiosity (2012). It was released as the lead single from the EP on September 20, 2011, through 604 Records. After pop singers Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez tweeted about the song, Jepsen gained international attention and got signed to Schoolboy Records, releasing her single in the United States through the label. Produced by Josh Ramsay, "Call Me Maybe" is an upbeat pop track that draws influences from Dance-pop and disco. Lyrically, the track alludes to the inconvenience that a love at first sight brings to a girl who hopes for a call back from a crush. It received generally positive reviews from contemporary critics, who praised its composition and clever lyrical content, with some deeming it as "the perfect pop song".

"Call Me Maybe" has attained commercial success worldwide and is already one of the biggest hits of the year 2012, reaching number one in Australia, Finland, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, while peaking inside the top ten in Belgium, Norway, and The Netherlands. After reaching the top position in Canada also, Jepsen became the fifth Canadian artist to do so in her home country. In the United States, the track has reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 9 on the Pop Songs chart. An accompanying music video portrays Jepsen trying to gain attention from her attractive neighbour, who is revealed to be gay at the close of the story. The singer has performed the track live a few times, including on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she made her US television debut.
