The video for Maroon 5′s “Love Somebody” looks extremely simple, but the theme is beautiful. Adam Levine and his bandmates only half exist, literally, until they mold the perfect lovers, who help them to become whole in return. At least that’s what I got from the sexy video in which Levine and a woman use their hands to create the rest of each other with a paint-like substance. As a fan of M5′s older material I’ve tried my hardest to detest this new stuff, but with each new single I find myself singing along and hitting replay. There’s something really intimate about this video. And, really, who doesn’t want to feel closer to Adam Levine? Continue reading

Maroon 5 hit the stage with Alicia Keys for a mashup of their singles “Daylight” and “Girl On Fire” at the 2013 Grammys.
I have to be honest. I wasn’t expecting much from this performance, since Keys always seems to strain whenever she sings this single, but she lowered the key and the medley was actually pretty fun!
Check it out below and let me know what you think!
The performers just keep rolling in!

The visuals for some of 2012′s biggest albums range from literal to abstract abstract. Usually album artwork is the first way artists can bring the public into their process for their new music. We take a look at the best artwork this year. Continue reading
Maroon 5 appeared on Saturday Night Live last night for a performance of their two singles “One More Night” and “Daylight.” Vocally, the performances left a lot to be desired, but that Adam Levine is so good looking I honestly don’t care that much.
Watch the Overexposed performances below and share your thoughts! Continue reading
Okay, they’re not performing TOGETHER, I just love that video…don’t you?
Let the promo begin! Rihanna’sUnapologeticis only weeks away from being released on Nov. 19 and the star is finally lining up some tv promo to get fans excited! The Barbados pop star will perform on Saturday Night Live 9 days before her album is released on Nov. 9. Rih will more than likely sing her new single “Diamonds” and hopefully some new material as well.
Maroon 5 will also hit the SNL stage on Nov. 17.
A few years ago I saw Maroon 5 with Kris Allen and VV Brown and I absolutely LOVED seeing them live. This week the band announced 2013 dates for a North American tour and this time they will be joined by Owl City and Neon Trees! The tour will kick off on February 13 in Columbus, Ohio and will go through April 6.
Christina Aguilera’s “Your Body” made it to No. 34 with sales of 103,000. Her last album’s “Not Myself Tonight” entered the chart at a higher rank (No. 23) but did so with lower sales of 77,000.
In the mean time, Maroon 5′s “One More Night” continues to stay on the top of the chart for the second week. It edges out PSY’s “Gangnam Style”, which settled for No. 2.
Maroon 5 returns with their latest studio album, Overexposed, a collection of eclectically arranged songs. From the latest single “One More Night”‘s regge influenced beat to the disco sounds of “Doin’ Dirt” Maroon 5′s newest effort makes for a captivating listen. The theme of the album must be “throwback” because the old school funk grooves combined with a metaphor from an old method of communication (first single, “Payphone” featuring Wiz Kalifa)makes it time-travel to the late 70s. In between those kinds of tunes, there are songs that sound fully like they were made for this era. One is “The Man Who Never Lied”, about a man who’s never lied to his girlfriend until one incident where it was the only way he could avoid hurting her.
The album is full of up-tempos until “Sad” a ballad about the disappointment of letting down a significant other. The biggest surprise comes on the deluxe version of the album, which closes with a cover of the Prince song “Kiss”. The song is completely revamped, going in a classic 50′s rock ‘n’ roll direction. It’s a great effort from a band that’s been missing from the music scene for a little while.
