Carly Rae Jepsen Teams Up With Owl City For New Single
Carly Rae Jepsen has a new summer anthem up her sleeve.
Following the success of “Call Me Maybe,” the Canadian singer collaborated with Owl City for “Good Time.” The track recalls past Owl City single “Fireflies” with Adam Young’s delicate vocals and electronic beats.
While Young sings of waking up with Prince songs stuck in his head on “Good Time,” Jepsen has the unfortunate luck of dropping her phone in the pool. Always the optimist, by the time the chorus comes her bad luck is long forgotten.
“We don’t even have to try/ It’s always a good time,” Young and Jepsen sing.
Owl City formed in 2007 and rose to popularity with their 2009 major label debut album Ocean Eyes. Last year, it was rumored that “Enchanted” on Taylor Swift’s album Speak Now was written about her first meeting with Young. The two singers emailed back and forth and his use of the words enchanted and wonderstruck in their email exchange reportedly sparked the song.
This week Jepsen tops Billboard’s Hot 100 for the second week with her debut single “Call Me Maybe.”
Billboard reports that Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” along with Gotye‘s “Somebody That I Used To Know” and fun.‘s “”We Are Young” is the longest streak of No. 1s by lead acts making their first appearances on the list in almost 35 years.
