Carly Rae Jepsen performed at New York City’s 2021 Governors Ball Music Festival 

The “Call Me Maybe” queen returned to the stage for the 2021 Governors Ball Music Festival, appearing on Sunday, Sept. 26.

Other artists featured at the music festival this day included Mazie, Yeek, Riz La Vie, Faye Webster, BJ the Chicago Kid, Princess Nokia, Caroline Polachek, Burna Boy, Duck Sauce, Dominic Fike, Smino, Young Thug, Jamie XX, and Ellie Goulding. “Circles” singer, Post Malone, acted as the headliner.

Complete with a full band and backup singers/dancers, Jepsen took to the Honda Stage, performing songs like “Cut to the Feeling,” “I Really Like You,” and “Want You in My Room.” Of course, fans praised her for, well, pretty much everything she did.  

Carly Rae Jepsen is often named the ‘Queen of Everything’

During her appearance at Governors Ball Music Festival, fans shouted the “Queen of…” throughout the performance. When she drank from her reusable cup, one attendee shouted “Conservation Queen.” 

When she sang the high note from “I Really Like You,” a fan called her the “Queen of Control.” When she took a break to talk about her sparkly outfit, another fan called her the “Queen of Fashion.” 

The many, many titles awarded to this artist are a part of an inside joke Jepsen is fully aware of. During one interview with NME, the artist shared her thoughts on being associated with royalty, saying that, if anything, she doesn’t shy away from the recognition. 

“Surely Beyoncé was the first to be called [the] queen of everything? The worst part is, like, my friends have started doing it,” Jepsen said. “I’ll send them a picture of me having Thanksgiving dinner, and they reply ‘queen of Thanksgiving.’ And I’m like, ‘Guys, come on!’ But no, really, it’s all good fun.”
