Carly Rae exploded onto the pop scene with her mega-hit "Call Me Maybe" in 2012, and although she's had a slew of successes since then (she's still fresh off the critical praise of her latest album E•MO•TION and was just recently announced as a headlining performer for the upcoming 2016 LA Pride Music Festival) we’re still trying to figure out why she is still one of the more underrated artists in the entire pop music landscape.

If you asked us, we really really really really really think her name should be Carly Slay Jepsen, and here are 14 reasons why...

1. For starters, her songs are the catchiest damn things on the planet.carly12

2. And she writes most of them.carly3

3. The range of her pop prowess is wide-reaching. From songs that give you the feels…

4. ...to songs that make you want to party your ass off.

5. And she even comes with accolades. Carly Slay currently holds the record for most weeks at #1 on iTunes by any female artist worldwide.carly11

6. Her latest album, E•MO•TION, has a higher Metacritic score than all of Katy Perry’s albums.carly7

7. AND she has more Grammy nominations than One Direction and Demi Lovato.carly4

8. She has the most ingenious ways of promoting her singles.

11. Don’t come for her live vocals, 'cause Carly Slay performed in not one, but two musicals.carly5

12. Including Grease, one of the highest rated live TV musicals to date.carly8

13. She made lip-dubs a thing, inspiring the world to lip-sync for their lives. 

14. And finally, she’s the only modern artist that can pull off a mullet.carly13

She's a party in the front and in the back.
