Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" and Psy's "Gangnam Style", the hottest late-summer hit songs of 2012, have been mashed into one addicting song.

Both songs received explosive attention globally as soon as they were released. "Call Me Maybe" and "Gangnam Style" are recognized as the catchiest songs of 2012 that went viral. It's no surprise that the mashup version of the two songs has already been streamed almost 506,000 times in just five days on SoundCloud.

During an interview with the Daily News, Michael Simmons revealed, "Honestly it started off as a joke between my cousin and me. He was dancing 'Gangnam Style' to 'Call Me Maybe' and I decided to do a mashup."

The 3 minutes and something seconds of this addicting mix of "Call Me Maybe" and "Gangnam Style" is a sensational hit that is becoming another hit of its own. Michael Simmons also mentioned how surprised he was one morning after seeing the number of plays his mashup received.

Carly Jepson is the winner of "Canadian Idol" who swept the charts with her new single, while Psy is a 34-year-old Korean singer from Korea with a "troublemaker" image. Both people, now global stars, gained international fame overnight and is maintaining their popularity with their unique character and style.

Together, "Call Me Maybe" and "Gangnam Style" has received over 483 million views on YouTube and that number is still on the rise.
