“Call Me Maybe” is still holding it down at No. 1, but now the Canadian pop sprite has a second single on the Billboard “Hot 100”: “Good Time,” her collab with Owl City, hit No. 18 this week. Vulture chooses to honor the persistence, if not the song quality, that led to this particular achievement. Also: four weeks straight for “Call Me Maybe”! Gold star, Americans.
