Carly Rae Jepsen finally hit Number One in America yesterday

Carly Rae Jepsen has finally straddled the Billboard Hot 100 with ‘Call Me Maybe’.
After weeks of jostling, Jeppo finally wrestled the top spot from boregasm ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’. Carly Rae spent last week directly beneath Gotye’s Number One, which is quite the frightful thought.
CRJ has radio plays and digital downloads to thank for the lift and statistic fetishists can find the motherlode over on the Billboard website. ‘Call Me Maybe’ is also first debut from a female artist to reach Number One in the US since Ke$ha was declining to stop and making it pop on ‘Tik Tok’ way back in 2009.
Meanwhile on the Billboard 200 album chart, little-known Adele returns to Number One for the 24th week with ’21′.
