Mission’s Carly Rae Jepsen, whose popularity exploded this year after pop star Justin Bieber told his fans she’s going to be the next big thing, is up for four MuchMusic Video Awards.
Her wildly successful song “Call Me Maybe,” which beat out Bieber himself on the U.K. charts, is up for Pop Video of the Year, Video of the Year, Favourite Video, and International Video of the Year.
The 26-year-old is currently working on her third studio album, and the first under Schoolboy Records, the label owned by Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun. Her music is still distributed by Vancouver’s 604 Records in Canada.
Call Me Maybe is the smash hit single from her latest album, Curiosity, which was released Feb. 14 and peaked sixth on the Canadian Albums Chart. Jepsen’s singe on YouTube has now been watched by more than 64 million viewers.
She is currently on tour on the U.S. eastern seaboard during May and June before heading into Canada and westward bound where you can hit her concert up at Vancouver’s PNE on July 6.
