Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” Named Billboard’s Song Of The Summer

Well, dear Idolator readers, your selection of Maroon 5‘s “Payphone” as the Song Of The Summer was an inspired choice, but the Billboard overlords are here to set the record straight. Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe” is Billboard‘s Song Of The Summer based on Hot 100 performance from Memorial Day to Labor Day. (Jepsen’s hit came in second in our poll.) The song spent nine weeks in the #1 spot, garnered 5.5 million downloads, 238 million Youtube views and roughly the same number of Youtube re-creations. Read on to see why this feat puts Carly Rae in some pretty good company.

Jepsen is the first artist to win the vaunted summer title with her first Hot 100 song since Katy Perry did the same with “I Kissed A Girl” in 2008. Perry again earned summer honors in 2010 with “California Gurls.” When the cute Canadian releases her debut album Kiss on September 18, we’ll have a much better idea of whether she’ll be on a path to similar success.
