    Carly Rae Jepsen, the Canadian singer and songwriter who has pop fans buzzing about her current single "Call Me Maybe," has signed to Schoolboy Records, created by Scooter Braun and run by Braun and multi platinum Schoolboy artist Justin Bieber. So she's The Biebs' artist and all his millions of female fans should check her out.

    The irresistibly catchy "Call Me Maybe," which Jepsen co-wrote, began to climb the iTunes Singles chart after Bieber tweeted the song to his 17.5 million followers. It received an additional boost after Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale and other young stars filmed themselves lip-synching and dancing to the song and posted the video on Big Time Rush actor and singer Carlos Pena's YouTube Channel, where it racked up a million views in 24 hours and became a trending topic on Twitter.

    "Call Me Maybe" has been certified double-platinum in Jepsen's native Canada where it hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 and became the first song by a Canadian artist to top the digital chart since Bieber's "Baby." Fans can submit their own versions of the video, or watch other fans videos by visiting http://carlycallme.tumblr.com as of right now.

    "This experience so far is renewing hope in me that dreams come true. I feel so blessed to be a part of the Schoolboy/Interscope family," said Carly in a statement.

    Music executive Scooter Braun said, "Every once in a while you stumble upon an artist that really fills a gap in the industry, Carly is that artist. Not only is she kind, sweet and hardworking but she is truly a genuine talent. She had me sold from the moment she told me she sees herself as a sexy hippie."

    "I feel as an artist I have a responsibility to pay it forward. When I was home in Canada I heard Carly and I became a fan and felt like I could help her the way Usher once helped me. The good news is she is a superstar," declared Bieber.
