'Call Me Maybe' and Psy's 'Gangnam Style' Meet in Super Mashup (Audio)
The ever-growing canon of “Call Me Maybe” spinoffs is receiving a fresh infusion of musical blood courtesy of Korean superhit "Gangnam Style.”
“Call Me Gangnam,” a mashup that is heavy on the Carly Rae Jepsen, features some beat and vocal help from Psy. His refrain of "Hey, sexy lady" certainly eviscerates the image of a handsome young man mowing Jepsen's lawn, and the duo's songs complement each other surprisingly well.
The mashup has received more than 460,000 plays since emerging online—all without a video, which has helped other “Call Me Maybe” spinoffs go viral.
Meanwhile, the two artists whose musical DNA combined to make this song are staying busy. Jepsen released The Kiss on Tuesday, her first album since “Call Me Maybe” became a phenomenon.
Psy brought his super hit to Saturday Night Live last week, and the video for his song continues to wrack up views on YouTube (211.5 million through Wednesday evening). Last week, Psy showed Britney Spears the moves to his dance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Listen to the mashup below.
