Carly Rae Jepsen is one of the brightest lights among young Canadian pop singer-songwriters. She is a former contestant on Canadian Idol. Following moderate success with singles from her first album Tug Of War, the song “Call Me Maybe” blasted on to the Canadian Hot 100 in the fall of 2011 and landed at #1. It was produced by previous collaborator Josh Ramsay, leader of the pop punk band Marianas Trench.
The clever lyrics of “Call Me Maybe” bubble out describing the infatuation and inconvenience of a love at first sight. Josh Ramsay’s production uses a light touch that bounces synthesized string chords off the words sung by Carly Rae Jepsen. The backing track is as insistent as the vocals but never gets in the way. Although some may dismiss it as fluff, “Call Me Maybe” is the kind of song that pop fans will take to heart.
Carly Rae Jepsen’s career in the US is getting a little boost from a fellow Canadian. She has been signed to Justin Bieber’s Schoolboy Records. Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Big Time Rush, and friends put together a homemade music video that is boosting the fortunes of the song even further. Pop fans should not miss the effort. “Call Me Maybe” is a clean, friendly, upbeat gem of a pop song.
