“Call Me Maybe” gets an R-rated Remix

The hype behind “Call Me Maybe” is comical.  A teenybopper love song from a Canadian singer who looks like she’s 15, but is really in her mid 20’s, Carly Rae Jepsen’s debut single is currently the 10th most popular song in America (according to the Billboard Hot 100).  It’s upbeat, kid-friendly, and as sweet as can be.  Or at least it was, until WVU rapper Huey Mack put his own spin on it.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more ridiculous, introducing “F**k Me Baby.” Mack’s re-make is not only hilarious, it’s also just catchy as the original.  Sure, Mack may not be as obnoxiously spunky as Jepsen, but with his clever lyrics and quick flow, his voice still prevails over the cheesy production.  His shout out to Selena Gomez in the second verse is one of the highlights of the track, and with a remix this solid, it’s easy to see why he has such a big underground following.
