Carly Rae Jepsen proved Sunday night that her 2012 breakthrough single “Call Me Maybe” is still getting dialed up. The singer snatched up three prizes at the Juno Awards, even beating out fellow School Boy Records artist Justin Bieber in one category.
The 27-year-old’s inescapable hit won for Single of the Year and her 2012 album, Kiss, won for Album of the Year and Pop Album of the Year at the Canadian music awards show. But Bieber hardly went home empty-handed. He was voted by his Beliebers to victory in the Juno Fan Choice Award category.
Shortly after her win, Jepsen wrote, “Wow- Pop Album of the YEAR! thejunoawards #JUNOawards I’m beaming! Thank you so much #KISS.”

And Bieber, who is currently traveling abroad on his Believe tour, seemed just fine losing to Jepsen, whom he was up against in the category. “hey if I’m gonna miss one at least it’s my own artist. Lol. Now bring out the @NICKIMINAJ song!” he tweeted, referring to an upcoming remix of Jepsen’s “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” featuring the rapper.
School Boy Records label boss beamed on Twitter about all the love his artists received at the show. He wrote, “Talk about a great night in CANADA. @carlyraejepsen with 3 Junos and @justinbieber with a win as well. #proud #schoolboy #hometeam thank u.”
In addition to Jepsen and Bieber going home with some heavy hardware, Bieber’s bestie, Drake, also was a winner. His clip for the unforgettable, Director X-helmed “HYFR” won for Video of the Year. Meanwhile, R&B singer The Weeknd won for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and R&B/Soul Recording of the Year for Trilogy.
Other winners included Mumford & Sons’ Babel who went home with International Album of the Year and Metric with Alternative Album of the Year. Grimes’ Visions won for Electronic Album of the Year.
