US Chart Roundup: "I Really Like You" Is Officially Carly Rae Jepsen's Third Top 40 Single

Thanks to what is quite possibly the most annoying viral video ever, Carly Rae Jepsen's "I Really Like You" has finally clawed its way into the Top 40. This week the song is up 44 positions to #39, following the premiere of a YouTube lipdub featuring basically the entire roster of artists managed by Scooter Braun — plus Lance Bass and Kendall Jenner — mouthing the words to "I Really Like You."

You may recall this shameless similar tactic is what got Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" noticed here in the States three years ago, only then it was Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and friends in the video.

Alas, the lineup may have rotated a bit (out with Selena; in with Kendall and Ariana Grande!), but the Bieber remains the same...just more lame.


The U.S. Top 10:

1. "See You Again" - Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth *2 weeks*
2. "Uptown Funk" - Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars
3. "Earned It (Fifty Shades Of Grey)" - The Weeknd
4. "Sugar" - Maroon 5
5. "Trap Queen" - Fetty Wap
6. "Love Me Like You Do" - Ellie Goulding
7. "Thinking Out Loud" - Ed Sheeran
8. "Shut Up And Dance" - Walk The Moon 
9. "G.D.F.R." - Flo Rida feat. Sage The Gemini & Lookas
10. "Somebody" - Natalie La Rose feat. Jeremih
