The 'Call Me Maybe' star teams up with the 'Fireflies' band for new track.
Carly Rae Jepsen's collaboration with Owl City on the song 'Good Time' was a "dream come true", according to the band's frontman.
Adam Young teamed up with the 'Call Me Maybe' star after deciding he wanted to write a track about people enjoying themselves.
"It was this whole worlds-collide thing, and it was this kind of dream come true. I can't believe it happened," Adam said.
"[It was] so kind to lend her talent to this song, so yeah, it worked out. ... I feel like it's one of those songs, it kind of always needed to be a duet. That was the initial idea from step one."
'Good Time' sees Adam and Carly sing about listening to songs by Prince and partying until the early hours of the morning.
Speaking to MTV News about the song's lyrics, he said: "I feel like every artist is inherently granted one shot to sing about having a good time in his or her life, and six months ago, I realised I hadn't cashed in my chips yet.
"So I thought, 'I'm gonna sit down and I'm gonna give this a shot ... and get my friend Carly to sing on it.' ... The final product rarely exceeds your expectations, and this thing just kind of happened."
