It seems that the whole world has done a cover of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” from corgi dogs and the Harvard Baseball team to the US Marines and digitally enhanced versions of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
But which one is Carly’s favorite?
“Cookie Monster kind of takes the cake for me. I mean, it’s ‘Sesame Street!’” the 26-year-old singer told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman in a new interview.
This week marks the 21st week Carly’s “Call Me Maybe” has been the number one single on Billboard’s Hot 100 and reflecting on her feel-good and widely-parodied first single, Carly says that people’s reception of her song was “more than (she) could have ever asked for.”
When asked if there was any pressure to surpass her Billboard-topping “Call Me Maybe,” Carly confesses that, as of late, she has been feeling more apprehensive over how fans will receive her future endeavors.
“I would be lying to say that I didn’t feel (pressured),” the 26-year-old singer said. “But a good thing about the song I did with Owl City, ‘Good Time,’…is that it kind of alleviated that feeling.”
Earlier this morning, Carly and Owl City released the music video for their collaboration “Good Time.” The video shows Carly and Adam Young of Owl City camping in the woods and singing on the hoods of cars, exuding a feeling of summer fun and carefree living.
The pop singer told Access that she was really happy to see that it’s starting to do well and hope it’s a good sign that her fans will continue to love her music as much as she enjoys making them.
“At this point, it’s just about the song that feels really special to me. If people like it, great but if not, then I can’t go wrong,” said Carly.
