This yearÆs breakout pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen releases her eagerly anticipated U.S. debut album, entitled, KISS. The Canadian singer and songwriter wrote and co-wrote songs on the album, collaborating with songwriters and producers Max Martin, Dallas Austin, LMFAOÆs Redfoo, Toby Gad, Marianas Trench singer Josh Ramsay and Matthew Koma. JepsenÆs latest single ôGood Time,ö a duet with Owl City, has climbed to No. 3 on the Pop Chart, No. 5 on the iTunes Singles chart, and No. 13 on BillboardÆs Hot 100, while the video, featuring Jepsen and Young, has racked up more than six million views on VEVO.
"These are lyric and song ideas that I have been collecting over the years,ö Jepsen says of Kiss. ôI can't tell you how lucky I feel to be able to collaborate with some of my dream producers. It has been the most fulfilling experience. The record is pop. ItÆs inspired by Robyn, The Cars, Madonna, and believe it or not, James Taylor. I can't wait to share it with everyone! Kiss."
Jepsen has been riding high with the success of her smash single ôCall Me Maybe,ö which has sold more than 7.3 million singles worldwide and has spent eight weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 so far, tying GotyeÆs ôSomebody That I Used To Knowö for most weeks atop the chart this year.
