The Canadian singer says Owl City collaboration 'Good Time' is not about becoming as big as her last single.
Carly Rae Jepsen says she doesn't feel any pressure to replicate the success of 'Call Me Maybe', and insists it is more about putting out music you are proud of than where your songs chart.
The 26 year-old singer is currently enjoying her fourth week at number one in the US with 'Call Me Maybe' but has just launched her follow-up track, a collaboration with singer-songwriter Owl City on a song called 'Good Time'.
"I think you can never focus on that too much when you put out music," Carly told MTV News recently. "It's not about where you are on the chart.
"It's just about putting out music that feels good, that you wanna sing and that hopefully other people enjoy too," the Canadian star added. "I"m really flattered I got that opportunity 'cause it's a song I dig."
Carly, who was signed to Justin Bieber's record label earlier this year, filmed the video for 'Good Time' with Owl City's Adam Young in New York City earlier this month, and Adam says he is happy to be "along for the ride" following Carly's huge worldwide success.
"It's a little bit scary," Adam explained, about launching the single last week. "But my friend Carly Rae has #1, like, right now, so I feel like my back is kind of covered 'cause she's got it made.
"And I'm lucky to be along for the ride. So I'd say 'Call Me Maybe' is the competition, and I'm living it up."
