Billboard says the 26-year-old Canadian's infectious pop song about infatuation love topped its Songs of Summer chart. The list annually ranks the overall performance of hit songs on the Billboard Hot 100 between July 4 and Labour Day.
The top five:
- Call Me Maybe, Carly Rae Jepsen.

Call Me Maybe has already netted Mission, B.C.'s Jepsen a Teen Choice Award, and the video is up for the best new artist moonman trophy at Thursday night's MTV Video Music Awards. The song was a No. 1 hit in 20 countries, including Canada and the U.S.
