"Call Me Maybe" is a song recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen for her EP Curiosity (2012) which also appears on her second studio album, Kiss (2012). The song was written by Jepsen and Tavish Crowe as a folk song, but its genre was modified to pop following the production by Josh Ramsay. It was released as the lead single from the EP on September 20, 2011, through 604 Records. Jepsen was signed to Schoolboy Records, releasing her single in the United States through the label, as the first single from Kiss. Musically, "Call Me Maybe" is a pop and teen pop track that alludes to the inconvenience that a love at first sight brings to a girl who hopes for a call back from a new crush.

"Call Me Maybe" reached number one in Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, Ireland, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Poland, Slovakia, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States, while peaking inside the top three in Austria, Belgium (Flanders & Wallonia), Germany, Israel, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden. After reaching the top position on the Canadian Hot 100, Jepsen became only the fifth Canadian artist to do so in her home country since 2007. In the United States, the track reached number one on the Mainstream Top 40 chart,[1] and is the first number one by a Canadian female artist on the Billboard Hot 100 chart since 2007's "Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne.

An accompanying music video was directed by Ben Knechtel. In it, Jepsen seeks the attention of an attractive boy next door who is revealed at the close of the story to be attracted to a male band member. As part of promotion for the song, Jepsen performed the track on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she made her US television debut, and at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. "Call Me Maybe" has been covered by several artists, including Big Time Rush, Fun, Cimorelli, Lil Wayne and Cody Simpson, and parodied by Cookie Monster and some of the news staff of National Public Radio. It was also covered on "The New Rachel", the season premiere episode of the fourth season of Glee.

"Call Me Maybe" was nominated for two Grammy Awards, for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance at the 55th Annual ceremony, but lost to "We Are Young" by Fun and the live performance of "Set Fire to the Rain" by Adele, respectively. On December 11, 2012, "Call Me Maybe" was named Song of the Year for 2012 by MTV.[2] In its 2012 Year-End issue, Billboard magazine ranked this song #2 in the Hot 100 Songs, Digital Songs, and Canadian Hot 100 charts, in each case behind "Somebody That I Used to Know", by Gotye featuring Kimbra. The song was also ranked number one by the Village Voice's annual Pazz and Jop poll, which compiles the votes of music critics from all over the United States.[3] The song was the best-selling single worldwide in 2012, selling over 12 million copies in that year alone, and the best-selling single on the iTunes Store in 2012. With worldwide sales, quoted in one source in July 2015 as over 18 million copies, it became the best selling single of the century by a female artist.[4] "Call Me Maybe" was the best-selling digital single of 2012,[5][6] and is the seventh best-selling digital single of all time. The song is ranked at #50 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of All-Time.[7]


Marianas Trench's vocalist Josh Ramsay co-wrote "Call Me Maybe".

"Call Me Maybe" was initially written by Jepsen and Tavish Crowe as a folk song, while they were on tour. Jepsen stated that the writing process was easy, and that she wasn't "over-thinking it. We brought in Josh, and he helped us kind of pop-ify it."[8] The following days, she recorded the track at the Umbrella Studios in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.[9] Jepsen later stated that it is "basically a pick up. What person hasn't wanted to approach somebody before and stopped because it's scary? I know I have."[10] "Call Me Maybe" had been first released in Canada only through 604 Records on September 20, 2011.[11]

In December 2011, dating pop singers Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were in Canada and heard the track on the radio. After they tweeted about it on their personal profiles, Jepsen instantly gained international attention, and got signed by Scooter Braun to his Schoolboy Records.[12] Bieber's tweet said the song "is possibly the catchiest song I've ever heard..."[13] Braun revealed that Bieber has "never jumped out and promoted an artist like this before. He sends me different YouTube videos of unsigned artists that he'd like to work with, but never someone who already had a song out and is on the radio."[13] Worldwide distribution of the single was done through Interscope Records.[14]


"Call Me Maybe" was written by Jepsen and Crowe, with additional writing and song production by Josh Ramsay.[9] Lyrically, the song describes the "infatuation and inconvenience of a love at first sight," as described by Bill Lamb of[15] During the pre-chorus, Jepsen states how she suddenly becomes attracted to a person, singing, "Your stare was holding, ripped jeans, skin was showing/Hot night, wind was blowing/Where you think you're going, baby?"[17] As the chorus begins, the background incorporates synthesized string chords, and Jepsen explains that her feelings towards the guy are unexpected, "Hey, I just met you, And this is crazy, But here's my number, So call me maybe."[15][18]

Melody Lau of Rolling Stone wrote that "Call Me Maybe" is a "Taylor Swift meets Robyn" song.[13] Jon O'Brien of AllMusic stated that the songs of Curiosity recall the bubblegum pop era of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, and added that "Call Me Maybe" is a teen pop song with "a chorus that just about straddles that fine line between sugary sweet and sickly."[19] Tiffany Lee of Yahoo! Music deemed it as an instant summer hit, and added that "Call Me Maybe" has "a good beat, great melody and catchy lyrics; something you and your friends can belt out in the car while driving to the beach, a party, and pretty much anywhere."[20] Jon Caramanica of The New York Times wrote that the song is "breezy and sweet, an eyelash-fluttering flirtation run hard through the Disney-pop model of digitized feelings and brusque, chipper arrangements."[17]

According to, "Call Me Maybe" is written in the key of G major with a moderate tempo of 120 beats per minute. Jepsen's vocals span from G3 to C5, and the song follows a key progression of Cmaj7-G/D-Cmaj7-G/D.[21]

Critical reception

The song received critical acclaim from music critics. Rolling Stone journalist Melody Lau considered "Call Me Maybe" "a sugary dance-pop tune ... about hoping for a call back from a crush,"[13] while Kat George of VH1 described it as a eurodance tune, a "guilty pop pleasure."[22]

Emma Carmichael of Gawker did a long review on the track, which she described as the "new perfect pop song."[16] Carmichael further added that the song is "flawless" and that "we will be virtually incapable of escaping the song and its strident disco strings and that horribly catchy hook."[16] Nicole James of MTV revealed that "Call Me Maybe" is probably the catchiest song she has ever heard, and added that "I don't even want to tell you what the play count is in my iTunes for that song, but the moment you press play you're sucked in."[23]

The Village Voices Maura Johnston deemed it as an "utterly earwormy" song.[24]RedEyes Emily Van Zandt began her review of the track saying, "screw you, Internet. Thanks to a couple of posts on blogs that I refuse to own up to following, my afternoon has been dedicated to Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Call Me Maybe'."[25] Van Zandt continued to state that "all I know is that I have co-dependency issues when it comes to my music. When it's sad, I'm sad. When it's angry, I'm angry. And when it's ridiculously over-produced, up-tempo bubblegum pop with terrible lyrics on a beautiful day in Chicago when I'm wearing pink pants, I just kind of want to start skipping around handing my number out to random bros, you know?"[25] Jim Farber of the New York Daily News said, "In lyrical construction, melodic flourish and instrumental arrangement, 'Maybe' has the urgency and sweep of the greatest teen pop songs ever recorded."[26]

Pitchfork Media named "Call Me Maybe" the 29th best song of 2012,[27] while Rolling Stone named it the 50th greatest single of that year.[28] It was voted the best single of 2012 by The Village Voices 40th annual Pazz & Jop critics' poll.[29] As of April 2017, Billboard ranked at number 1 on list "The Best Chorus of the 21st Century".[30][31]

These are all artists I look up to in a big way. I have their music, they've been on my records since I can remember. It's really hard to believe. It's cool because at the same time, it's all that I've all ever been working for."[36] The song has since been certified 7× Platinum by the Music Canada (MC), and has sold over 560,000 units of the track in the country.[14][37] For the chart for the week of January 12, 2013, the song jumped from number 43 back into the top 40 at number 27.

Music video

The music video for "Call Me Maybe" was written and directed by Ben Knechtel. According to Knechtel, the main idea behind the concept was to have a "twist at the end", trying to get away from the idea of the classic "boy meets a girl" story.[59] The music video has over 1.1 billion views on YouTube as of September 2018.[60]

The video begins with Jepsen spying on her attractive tattooed neighbour (Holden Nowell) as he is working on his lawn.[17] As he takes his shirt off and notices she is staring at him, Jepsen slips on her high heels and falls below her window. She is reading the books Love at First Sight (Men In Uniform) by B.J. Daniels and Skylar's Outlaw by Linda Warren. The scene then cuts to her garage, where she is rehearsing the track with her band. Following the rehearsals, her bandmates push her to go and wash her car, where she tries to gain her neighbour's attention with various provocative poses only to fall from the hood of the car. She is briefly knocked out from the fall, during which she dreams of a romance novel-type encounter with her crush against the backdrop of Peggys Cove.[61] As she comes to, the neighbour then helps her get up, and watches the band rehearse the track again. After turning and writing down her telephone number, Jepsen sees her neighbour pass one of her male bandmates (Tavish Crowe) his own number, indicating he is gay, where the very end shows that Jepsen is taken aback by this. The video received three nominations on the 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards in the categories of UR Fave Video, Pop Video of the Year, and Video of the Year.[62]

Holden Nowell and the gay scene

In 2018, Holden Nowell talked publicly about the gay scene in the music video. "The fact that they had to make me gay at the end of the video ... it was all very ... I didn't like being known as the gay guy in the 'Call Me Maybe' video. It was just something I wasn't used to," Nowell told iHeartRadio Canada. In the original storyline he should have kissed a guy in the music video. But Holden suggested the alternative storyline, where he just gave the guitarist his phone number: "I was like, 'I'm going to be completely honest with you. I'm not going to kiss a guy, especially for $500.' I said, 'I really don't think I'm comfortable kissing a guy for a music video [...] I said, 'You know what? What if instead of me kissing a guy at the end of the video, what if I just give a guy my number or something like that?'".[63]

Emily Exton of Pop Dust summarized the performance, writing, "delivering fairly true-to-radio vocals that seemed to overcome any lingering nerves performing for millions of viewers (and your sorta boss?) might bring on, Carly left the security of the mike stand to move beneath the oversized dandelion lights during the final moments of her euphoric head-bobber."[65] She also performed an acoustic version of the song on Kidd Kraddick in the Morning and KISS 92.5.[66][67] On May 2, 2012, on a visit to Australia, she performed "Call Me Maybe" on the TV show Sunrise.[68] On May 20, 2012, Jepsen performed the track on the 2012 Billboard Music Awards.[69] On June 9, 2012, Jepsen performed the track with Justin Bieber on the Capital FM Summertime Ball 2012 at Wembley Stadium, London.[70]
