Released in Canada in the fall of 2011, Carly Rae Jepsen's song "Call Me Maybe" eventually took off and became a worldwide hit in 2012, reaching No. 1 in countries like Australia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Hungary, the UK and the United States thanks to some Twitter help from fellow Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber. In the United States, it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the week of June 23 and spent nine consecutive weeks at that spot.
