Carly Rae Jepsen used to date a Filipino musician with whom she frequently collaborated before making waves worldwide with the juggernaut hit "Call Me Maybe."
This was the Canadian singer-songwriter's candid sharing with ABS-CBN News on Thursday, when asked whether she is open to collaborating with any Filipino artist.
"Yeah, when I'm not writing for myself, I like to write for other artists, too, so that would be definitely something I would be open to doing. Actually the second boyfriend that I ever dated was Filipino, and he was a talented musician. He used to play the saxophone all the time. We used to come together all the time."
Set for a one-night concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on August 7 -- her first in the Philippines -- Jepsen said she intends to expand her Filipino connection.
