As anyone with a computer knows, there have been an endless number of Call Me Maybe covers since this Carly Rae Jepsen track blew up a few months ago.

But a Ukrainian artist who goes by the name "Aza" is set to take legal action because she alleges the hit single itself is a ripoff of her "Hunky Santa."

Listen to it here and decide if Aza has any reason to claim that producers simply tweaked her song in order to create Jepsen's version:

According to TMZ, a lawsuit will be filed today in which Aza seeks unspecific damages. Among those included as its target will be Scooter Braun, the manager for both Jepsen and Justin Bieber.

Following the relative (read: HUGE) success of "Call Me Maybe" - which spawned about six dozen covers - Carly Rae Jepsen is back with a new music video.

In honor of "This Kiss," the video mostly depicts the Canadian artist in a very good mood, partying with friends inside a house and on the street, culminating in a swim and a kiss with a handsome young man.

Call her ready to move on with a new hit.

After giving fans a listen to her next single, "This Kiss," Carly Rae Jepsen has now come out with a preview of the track's official music video.

Featuring the rising superstar at a party… and a swimming pool… and in the middle of the street with friends, Jepsen ends up jumping into the water and sharing a smooch with a member of the opposite sex.

See for yourself here:

Will "This Kiss" elicit the same sort of Call Me Maybe covers that helped propel Jepsen's career? We doubt it. But the tune sure is catchy!

One week prior to the release of her new studio album, we've got your first listen to the title track off Carly Rae Jepsen's "Kiss."

Titled "This Kiss," the song was penned by the "Call Me Maybe” crooner herself, along with rumored boyfriend Matthew Koma. Give it a listen right here and now:

As she attempts to broaden her resume beyond her one mega smash, Jepsen has been giving fans a series of new singles to enjoy over the past couple weeks.

There's "Beautiful," her duet with Justin Bieber; and a recent cover of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides, Now." What do you think of these tunes? And will you be purchasing Jepsen's next CD?

Carly Rae Jepsen does not want to be a one-hit wonder.

Even when that one hit is the biggest smash to hit the music charts in years.

So with a new album about to go on sale, the 26-year old Canadian is working hard to showcase her versatility for the world. Hence her appearance last week with Ryan Seacrest and hence her version during that radio interview of the 1968 Joni Mitchell track "Both Sides, Now."

Give it a look and a listen now:

Jepsen also teams up with Justin Bieber for the song "Beautiful." It will be included on her September 18 release.

Carly Rae Jepsen and Justin Bieber are about to make beautiful music together... literally!

The 26-year old will release a new album on September 18 (titled "Kiss") and one of the tracks included on it will be a duet with the young man who made Jepsen famous.

It's called "Beautiful" and you can sample about 90 seconds of it here:

Bieber, of course, helped sign Jepsen to his manager's label. He then appeared in the first-ever lip dub of "Call Me Maybe" and also performed that single with her in London.

What do you think of "Beautiful?"

Thanks to the Carly Rae Jepsen smash sweeping the nation, we've been treated to a number of hilarious Call Me Maybe covers.

But Insane Clown Posse members Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope have now filmed the first-ever Mystery Science 300-esque breakdown of that track's music video - and it's downright awesome.

The face-painted artists sit around and breakdown the action in front of them, from commenting on whether they'd get it on with Jepsen... to the video's unrealistic portrayal of a gardener... to the band's resemblance to the CreditScore.com guys... to the "twist" of an ending that seems to truly take the duo by surprise.

Who came up with this idea? We have no clue. But let's hope it isn't the last we see of Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope serving as music video critics.

On her professional aspirations: “Nobody can do Britney again. She did a great job at it. I just want to be the best Carly Rae I can be.”

On her taste in men: “I definitely have a little attraction to bad guys, but they have to be sweethearts underneath. After all, I like to be treated well - it’s important to me.”

On her new album, Kiss (out September 18): “My new songs are like clothes done by Versace or Moschino… my music is bejeweled, it’s colorful, it’s romantic, it shines.”

Matthew Koma can call Carly Rae Jepsen at any time. Definitely.

That's because the musician is dating the 26-year old Canadian star, as witnesses confirm to People Koma and Kepsen went public at the GetGlue HD Launch Party at the Standard, East Village in New York City this week.

"He introduced her as his girlfriend," a source said of Koma. "He seemed really excited about it, and she was smiling from ear to ear by his side during the introduction. He seems like a really nice and personable guy."

Koma is mostly a rock 'n' roll artist and has released a debut EP titled "Parachute." He has been dating Carly Rae for more than a year.

Jepsen, meanwhile, will release a new album on September 18.
