Carly Rae Jepsen was born in Mission, British Columbia, on November 21, 1985, to parents Alexandra and Larry Jepsen. Since Carly was a youngster, she has been interested in everything artistic.
She attended Heritage Park Secondary School when she found her passion for musical theater. She followed her passion, and soon, she appeared in the production of “Annie” as Annie, in “Grease” as Sandy Olsson  , and in “The Wizard Of Oz” as Dorothy Gale  .
But singing and acting weren’t always her career paths. Her parents and most of her family were teachers, so Carly considered making her parents proud and following in their footsteps.
When she got older, Carly took music classes at both British Columbia University  , and Capilano University  , but her career didn’t go off until her drama high school teacher pushed her to audition for the Canadian College Of Performing Arts in 2004.
After graduating with flying colors, Carly wanted to see what it felt like to be a grown-up and moved to Vancouver, where she started working menial jobs like barista, assistant, bartender, etc.
There are multiple reasons why a young pop star’s career would flop so easily after releasing such a huge hit song, but the main reason is that she couldn’t compete with herself.
There is a row of talented artists who could not compete with their own hit songs, so they became one-hit wonders. For example, take Gotye and his evergreen song, “Somebody That I Used To Know.
He and his duet will always be a fan favorite, making all his other work basically meaningless. This is precisely what happened to Carly and her career.
Even though she has hundreds of other songs, she became the “Call Me Maybe” girl, and her one single overshadows her whole career.
On the other hand, Jepsen’s fans wanted her to do something different with her music, but they always compared her work with the top single.
This happened when she released her single “I Really Like You,” and she was wildly critiqued and compared to her own previous music.
The Album on which “I Really Like You” was, was also very weirdly promoted and wasn’t released worldwide, which, so to say, was a recipe for disaster.
She released multiple singles of the album in a period of four months without actually releasing the album itself. Hence, the fans already knew half of her album and didn’t have the need actually to buy any of her work.
Even without her music charting on the top lists, Carly is a very appreciated artist and musician. She has a very loyal fan base that listens to her new work and would always root for her, proving that you don’t need ratings and awards to be an artist.
Carly Rae Jepsen is a Canadian musician and songwriter. She gained popularity when she participated in Canadian Idol and finished third place.
After completing the competition, she got signed by a label, and in 2012, Carly’s hit song “Call Me Maybe” spread like wildfire.
Carly’s net worth is estimated at $10 million.
