It seems like only yesterday that Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" topped the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time. Now, nine weeks later, the infectious summer hit is still at No. 1, meaning Carly Rae has held the top position for longer than even Gotye. The Belgian-Australian singer who spent eight weeks at the top with "Somebody That I Used To Know."

As a result, "Call Me Maybe" has spent more time atop the Billboard singles chart than any other song in 2012, reports Billboard. Congratulations on a job well done, America!

All jokes aside, the "Call Me Maybe'" rise to the top is pretty impressive. The phenomenon began in February, when Justin Bieber and his girlfriend Selena Gomez (along with a few of their famous friends), recorded an adorable lip-sync video to Jepsen's song. Thanks to Bieber -- and his 21 million Beliebers -- "Call Me Maybe" became an overnight internet sensation.

Unfortunately for Bieber, Jepsen's single is currently No. 1, while his latest single, "As Long as You Love Me," is holding steady at No. 15.

In other Jepsen news, the 26-year-old (yes, she's 26 years old) recently announced that she will release her sophomore effort Kiss on Sept. 18. “The record is pop,” Jepsen said in a statement, adding: ”It’s inspired by Robyn, the Cars, Madonna, and believe it or not, James Taylor.” Let's not forget about that LMFAO collaboration, Carly.

How did Jepsen get to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 summit? Take at look through our timeline below to see how Jepsen went from a Canadian folk artist to a worldwide pop phenomenon in less than a year.
