Brendon Ayanbadejo enjoys Call Me MaybeRavens linebacker Breandon Ayanbadejo sat down with NPR’s “Tell Me More” to chat about some of the music that he uses to get amped up on and off the field.

In addition to enjoying Frank Ocean and Skrillex, Ayanbadejo openly admitted that he’s a fan of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, “CALL ME MAYBE”)

CARLY RAE JEPSEN: (Singing) I threw a wish in the well. Don’t ask me, I’ll never tell. I looked to you as it fell. And now you’re in my way.

AYANBADEJO: Oh, man, I can’t even, I have no street cred if I do this “Call Me Maybe” song.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, “CALL ME MAYBE”)

JEPSEN: (Singing) I wasn’t looking for this. But now you’re in my way. Your stare was holding. Ripped jeans, skin was showing. Hot night, wind was blowing. Where you think you’re going, baby? Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy. But here’s my number…

AYANBADEJO: (Singing) Here’s my number, so call me baby. Maybe it’s maybe, not baby.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, “CALL ME MAYBE”)

JEPSEN: (Singing) It’s hard to look right, at you baby. But here’s my number, so call me maybe. Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy. But here’s my number, so call me maybe.

AYANBADEJO: It’s like the catchiest song right now. Like my daughter sings it. We be sitting here just singing it.
