After being introduced to her song “Call Me Maybe” by Justin Bieber, Scooter quickly signed Carly to his School Boy Records, and then partnered up with Jimmy Iovine’s Interscope Records to distribute the project. In the United States Bieber and Scooter’s push allowed “Call Me Maybe” to reach even bigger heights than it previously achieved on the Canadian charts. The song reached number one on the week of June 23, 2012. The song currently is in its eighth consecutive week at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, for the week ending August 11, 2012.
