You may know Carly Rae Jepsen as the artist behind "Curiosity," "Good Time" and of course, her hit song "Call Me Maybe." Now, you can call Carly Raw the Rising Star of 2012, thanks to Billboard!
"Call Me Maybe" spent nine consecutive weeks at the number one spot on the Hot 100 list! That’s a record-breaker for a Canadian artist! But that’s not all – Carly Rae has sold over 10 million singles world wide and the video for ‘Call Me Maybe’ has also gotten over 300 million views on Youtube!
“As a singer-songwriter having grown up listening to and being influenced by countless female artists, I am truly honoured to be recognized by Billboard with this award,” says Carly Rae. She continued with, “I hope to inspire others through my music the way those artists have inspired me.”
Carly Rae’s latest album 'Kiss' debuted on the Billboard 200 list at the number six spot. We have a feeling the songstress will continue to build her loyal following of Jepsies over the next year.
