A picture is worth a thousand words…
There it is folks. A big thank you to all for your support. Carly Rae Jepsen is #1 on iTunes. “Call Me Maybe” is the biggest song in the country. It’s been a looooong time since a Canadian artist has been at #1.
Carly will be releasing her second studio album, Curiosity, on Valentine’s Day (14 February 2012) under 604 Records / Universal. Below is the album cover which she has posted on her website.
