The 'Good Time' singer says she is thankful her hit single has helped her breakthrough in the industry.
Carly Rae Jepsen says she still isn't sick of her breakthrough hit 'Call Me Maybe', despite the song having been released in Canada as far back as September last year.
The 26 year-old singer says she is still "waiting" to become irritated by her signature hit, but is still enjoying the success her pop hit has brought her since its release in Europe and America in early 2012.
"I'm waiting for that to happen," Carly admitted to the Associated Press this week. "But at this point it's still such a crazy adventure that I'm on because of this song, that I do feel like there's a new element to it every day."
Carly also discussed the pressure of following up her breakthrough smash with more songs that will do equally well, but says she has been enjoying the pressure of writing and recording so quickly.
"I just feel a pressure to put out music that I feel really proud of and that feels like me," Carly explained. "There's definitely a limited amount of time to get that done well and get that done right. But I think it's close.
"It's been sort of a fun project to be writing on the plane and in the hotel room at night," she added.

The former Canadian Idol star has since released her new song 'Good Time' in America, a collaboration with 'Fireflies' singer Owl City, which was the highest new entry on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart last week at number 18.
Carly shot the music video for 'Good Time' in New York City last week and is expected to release her new album sometime later this year.
