Justin Bieber Helps Protégée Carly Rae Jepson On Her Way To Chart Domination

Author: katy | Filed under: Music News

Until recently, you would not be blamed for not recognising the name Carly Rae Jepson. But within the space of a few weeks, the Canadian singer is now a household name with a chart topping debut single which looks set for world domination.

The 26-year-old singer has shot to fame in shocking time, thanks to the unbelievable success of her debut single ‘Call Me Maybe’ which has rocketed to the top of the charts in both the UK and US. To date, the single has been labelled as the fastest selling single of 2012 – which is quite a feat for a singer who only a matter of weeks ago was virtually unheard of.

However, the secret behind the young songstress’s success is said to be a result of the hard work of the massive teen star Justin Bieber. It is reported that the young male heart-throb first heard Jepson’s catchy tune whilst it was being played on the radio. Bieber then went on to sign the shocked artist to his label, ‘Schoolboy Records’, before helping her to take the now hugely successful track ‘Call Me Maybe’ to the top of the charts.

On his decision to sign the Canadian singer, sources suggest that this may have been a way of ‘paying it forward’. This is because similarly to his own protégée Bieber was also scouted by another star, R&B singer Usher, who decided to sign him to his record label after hearing him sing on the radio.
