Carly Rae Jepsen fights off tough competition, stays at No.1 with 'Call Me Maybe'

Canadian rising star Carly Rae Jepsen is still at No.1 in the UK Top 40 Singles Chart this evening (April 22) with her catchy hit, 'Call Me Maybe'.

Speaking to Radio 1's Reggie Yates, she explained that having celebrities upload videos of themselves miming along to the track happens so often that it's almost expected now, but is still strange: "It's getting weird. Miley Cyrus has also done one! It's become quite a cool little online thing to do!"

Meanwhile, newcomer Conor Maynard has gone straight into No.2 with his debut single 'Can't Say No' and revealed his excitement at the impressive position earlier this evening (April 22):

"Number 2 for my first ever single!!! Ahhhhhh can't tell you #Mayniacs how thankful I am!!!! Remember... I've saved the best for you... ;) Literally amazing #Mayniacs... I'm YOUR biggest fans!!!! #MayniacsGoHard"

fun.'s anthemic single 'We Are Young' has climbed to No.3, John Legend's 'Ordinary People' has shot up a phenomenal 23 places to No.4, and B.o.B's 'So Good' has entered at No.7.




Elsewhere, Train's new offering, 'Drive By', has made an appearance at 14 and Linkin Park's long-awaited 'Burn It Down' has charted at No.27.
