Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen

A few weeks back, we here on FemaleFirst had a look at the curse of the one hit wonder, utterly presuming that Carly Rae Jepsen was going to fall into the same trap as many before her.

It looks though like we could have been pretty wrong about her chances though.

After her colossal hit Call Me Maybe took the world by storm, Carly’s now at the centre of the musical world. Up for nomination for ‘Best New Artist’ at the VMA’s (despite releasing an album back in 2008) the former Canadian Idol contestant has now even been selected by MTV to take over their network as their ‘PUSH’ artist for September.

All the media attention in the world won’t help her though if she can’t get another hit under her belt, although that looks a further and further possibility.

Funnily it’ll come from teaming up with Owl City, one of the biggest one hit wonders of the decade and taking at ignominious title off him, for follow up single ‘Good Time’ that’ll get her the second chart success she craves for. Hideously catchy and sweet enough to rot your teeth, the single’s a near sure fire it. It may not do the crazy numbers Call Me Maybe did, but it’ll be good enough.

Unfortunately for her, Call Me Maybe will be her calling card for years and will only stop being the first thing associated with her until she comes up with a new megahit.

But, because we’re really nice, we’ve got a massive preview of Carly’s new album Kiss for you right below, with a chunk of each of the album’s 12 tracks featured in this mega-montage. With sticky sweet, bubblegum pop like this, she’s not going away any time soon, especially if she keeps collaborating with Justin Beiber.



Carly Rae Jepsen’s album Kiss launches on September 17th in the UK and a day later in the US.
