No. 18: Carly Rae Jepsen – 100 Most Mind-Numbingly Hot Women of 2012
The 26-year-old recording artist and singer-songwriter from Mission, British Columbia placed third in the fifth season of ‘Canadian Idol’ and became the first ‘Canadian Idol’ contestant to enter the UK charts.
Jepsen’s second album Curiosity was released on February 14, 2012. The lead single, ‘Call Me Maybe’ was released on September 21, 2011. It’s the first song by a Canadian artist to reach the top of the digital chart since Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’ in January 2010 and is only the 11th song by a Canadian artist to reach #1 on the Digital Songs chart since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking digital download sales in 2005.
The song has also peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Canadian Hot 100, being the 4th Canadian artist to do so.
Her ridiculously popular single gets all the girls wet, which in turn, has most guys going bananas.
