The Canadian star's hit single claims its eight-week at the top of the chart.

Carly Rae Jepsen's hit single 'Call Me Maybe' has claimed an eight consecutive week at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US.

The Canadian singer has now tied Gotye's same run at the top with 'Somebody That I Used To Know' earlier this year.

Her latest release and collaboration with Owl City 'Good Time' has also leaped onto the chart at number 15.

The other top consecutive singles of the year include Fun's 'We Are Young' which spent six weeks at the top and Kelly Clarkson's 'Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)' with three.

Other notable inclusions on this week's top ten include Maroon 5's 'Payphone' after it claimed it's 15th week inside the top three positions.

Pink, Usher and Rihanna all make up the rest of the chart with Katy Perry's 'Wide Awake' remaining at two.

Carly's hit single has also been reworked in numerous well-documented parodies – including most recently the USA Olympic swimming team.

The star is also currently working on her new album and has confirmed that it will include collaborations with the likes of mentor Justing Bieber and LMFAO's RedFoo.
