Until a few moments ago, I’d never heard any rendition of Carly Rae Jepsen’s enormous hit song. I’ve heard of it, but never heard it. However, then the Roots became involved, and the Roots are irresistible.
She’s been hovering at #2 on the charts for a long time now, because Gotye is still in charge. Unless something has happened that I haven’t heard about (very likely), she may never crack #1. Yet, how many time has Gotye gotten to perform in a tiny room with The Legendary Roots Crew? Zero, thus, Carly Rae wins.
