Carly Rae Jepsen

Though “Call Me Maybe” released in 2011, it went unnoticed in Carly Rae Jepsen’s Canadian homeland. However, after social powerhouse Justin Bieber tweeted about the song and appeared in a viral lip-dub video, it became an instant hit.

This skyrocketed Jepsen into Internet stardom in 2012. Dozens of media outlets wrote about her and the song, which held the number-one spot on Billboard Hot 100 for nine weeks. Fans have created hundreds of “Call Me Maybe” parodies and mashups for YouTube — including Harvard athletesSesame Street characters and Olympic swimmers.
