When it comes to getting paid for performances of songs to which you’ve contributed, it’s our business to take care of you. We’ve got your back.
Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” was a pop-culture phenomenon: it reached No. 1 on the iTunes singles charts in 47 countries, sold more than 17 million singles worldwide, and earned two Grammy Award nominations, including Song of the Year. With her ‘80s-inspired, critically-acclaimed E*MO*TION album, SOCAN member Jepsen brought new depth and dimension to her catchy, passionate pop music. Much celebrated, Jepsen has earned three JUNO Awards, a Billboard Music Award, and an Emmy Award nomination, and she was short-listed for the 2016 Polaris Music Prize. She’s now sold more than 20 million records worldwide.
