Love it or hate it, you’ve got to admit Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” is catchy.

But is her song going to be the song of the summer? Lots of people think so.

Jepsen appeared on Jimmy Fallon last week and on NPR’s “All Things Considered” over the weekend to talk about her hit single. Among the famous faces that have already done covers of her song: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, James Franco, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and even President Barack Obama.

There are tons of YouTube covers of her song also by amateurs, including the Harvard University baseball team (see video below).
