The 'Call Me Maybe' singer says her signature hit was originally more of a folk song.

Carly Rae Jepsen says she never expected to have such a massive success with her single 'Call Me Maybe' and says the song's chart performance around the world is "beyond" what she imagined.

The 26 year-old singer-songwriter took to the stage at the Capital FM Summertime Ball 2012 earlier tonight (9th June) after being introduced as Justin Bieber's special guest, after Justin had teased a surprise addition this morning, much to the shock of the 80,000 strong Wembley Stadium audience. 

"[I wrote the song] with two of my good friends Tavish Crowe and Josh Ramsay and it started off as a little bit of a folk song that we wrote together, and then Josh helped us kind of popify it with the production," Carly revealed to Capital FM earlier today. "I don't know, we were all stoked about it but we didn't expect any of this."

Carly added: "This is kind of beyond."

After arriving on stage as the 'Boyfriend' singer's surprise guest Carly thrilled the Summertime Ball audience with a huge performance of her Vodafone Big Top 40 number one 'Call Me Maybe'.

The Capital FM Summertime Ball 2012 saw performance from huge acts including Jessie J, Usher, The Wanted, Justin Bieber and Coldplay.
