Carly Rae Jepsen: 'I was supposed to write a folk album'

Canadian sensation Carly Rae Jepsen, who released the song of the summer 'Call Me Maybe', has admitted that she wasn't meant to take her music in a pop direction at all.

Speaking to Billboard about her style and the original intentions she had for her debut major label album, 'Kiss', she explained that she was "supposed to write a folk album":

"I wanted to write a pop album. And everyday I'd go into the studio with every intention of writing a folk album, and I'd have all these pop ideas. At one point I threw my hands in the air and said, 'Well this is what I want to do. Let's break all the rules and just do it."

Referring specifically to 'Kiss', she added that there is a consistent theme that runs through it and each song tells of an attachment to love:

"I would say the main thread throughout the whole album is, it's about love. It's about all the complications that go along with that. For me, love is an endless pool of inspiration that you can pull from nonstop. I can write you six albums about love and I wouldn't be done."
