Prior to "Call Me Maybe," Jepsen was a virtually unknown artist who had only released one full-length album. But with its release, the song quickly became a viral sensation, thanks in part to its upbeat melody, Jepsen's sweet vocals and the relatable story of a girl trying to muster the courage to ask a boy she likes for his number.
With the success of "Call Me Maybe," Jepsen's career skyrocketed. She went on to release two more albums, "Kiss" and "E•MO•TION," both of which received critical acclaim and cemented her place as one of pop music's most talented and versatile artists.
If you enjoyed "Call Me Maybe," there are plenty of other songs by Jepsen that are worth checking out. Here are just a few:
