Carly Rae Jepsen is prepping a new catch phrase-laden single for the summer, but is teaming up with Coca-Cola and "American Idol" to help her finish writing it.
Jepsen is the latest artist to become the face of Coke's Perfect Harmony program, which lets fans vote on their favorite lyrics for an original song, tentatively titled "Take A Picture," that Jepsen will perform on the first part of the "Idol" season finale May 15. Previous performers include Taio Cruz in 2011 and Jason Derulo in 2012. The voting starts today at AmericanIdol.com and continues through May 14.
"I'm the type of person who kind of thrives on collaboration," says Jepsen on the phone from Paris, where she's currently on a European tour with Justin Bieber. "I was in the Bahamas and spent probably three days cooped up in my hotel coming up with different ideas for the fans. The hook is 'I'll take a picture of you / taking a picture of me,' and the viewers get to pick their favorite."
