    Carly Rae Jepsen is working on her new album and about three tracks from the batch she penned on the road will probably make the album.

    She also revealed which pop acts she loves, saying, "My favorite pop artists at the moment are Robyn...Kimbra, La Roux and Dragonette. And I think I have a folky side in my blood from what I used to listen to with my parents, and it'll be fun to incorporate of that more in the verses of the pop songs, a little something deeper to the verses. That's what I love about the pop stars I just named, is they don't do just your regular kind of pop songs. There's some stuff to hold onto and dig into. That's what I want to do."

    She isn't rushing to follow up 2012's Kiss, which she felt was rushed, either. She said, "I think I'll be kind of taking my time to make sure what I'm putting out there next feels like the strongest thing I can make."

    CRJ has earned the right to take her time and make a quality, solid album!

    Do you think Carly Rae Jepsen has a career beyond the summer 2012 smash "Call Me Maybe" or is she a one hit wonder?
