Maroon 5 Biography

GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum powerhouse Maroon 5 are one of pop music’s most enduring artists and the 21st century’s biggest acts. To date, the universally renowned Los Angeles band have achieved multiple GRAMMY® Awards and become the most successful duo or group on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this century; with 32 records charted and 15 Top 10 singles. Maroon 5 holds a Top 40 record for the most #1 hits among pop duo or groups with Eleven entries and have earned Twenty-Two Top 10 entries on the chart. They are the only band to achieve these accolades. Maroon 5 reaches over 45 million monthly Spotify listeners, and after completing their “2021” tour, they have played over 750 concerts in 30+ countries selling over 7,500,000 tickets worldwide, remaining “one of the world’s best-selling artists.”

Maroon 5 have achieved this success on their own terms with an instantly recognizable and singular style. A combination of airtight songwriting, straightforward lyricism, clever wit, and adventurous crea-tivity has earmarked their hypnotic hybrid of rock and pop from day one. Emerging from the City of Angels with this style, the group catapulted to world renown with their debut, Songs About Jane, which landed them their first GRAMMY® for “Best New Artist in 2005.”

In 2007, the double-platinum follow-up, It Won’t Be Soon Before Long, yielded the smashes “Makes Me Wonder” and “If I Never See Your Face Again.” Meanwhile, 2010’s Hands All Over represented a watershed moment, boasting “Misery” and the inescapable “Moves Like Jagger.” Both garnered GRAMMY® nods in the category of “Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals.” “Moves Like Jagger” seized #1 on the Top 40, Hot AC, and Billboard Hot 100 charts and stood out as “one of the best-selling singles of 2011”. The song has gone on to be “one of the best-selling singles of all time” with sales over 37 million around the globe and becoming only the band’s first song to reach Diamond certification status in the US (10 x Platinum). Front man Adam Levine was “the first artist in the
Hot 100’s history to reach #1 as part of a group, while entering the Top 10 at the same time as a soloist as he featured on and co-wrote Gym Class Heroes’ ‘Stereo Hearts’.”

Maroon 5 once again ruled pop with 2012’s Overexposed. All of its singles became chart-toppers and, along the way, they set a record for most career number ones (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart’s 20-year history. During 2014, the group’s album V bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and yielded “Maps,” “Animals,” and “Sugar”—which each captured #1 on the Top 40 Chart. Rolling Stone wrote, “Adam Levine and Co. continue their Top 40 takeover with a set of irresistibly sharp hooks…The 11 songs here are precision-tuned and lustrously pol-ished, jammed with hooks and choruses that build a man cave in your brain.” The music video for the band’s chart-dominating and GRAMMY Award-nominated single “Sugar” notably amassed over three billion views to date —making it one of the most-viewed videos of all time. This is an incredible benchmark, as Maroon 5 is one of the few artists to ever achieve this feat. In 2022, “Sugar” was certified US Diamond to mark their 3rd record to reach that achievement.

In 2018, the platinum Red Pill Blues (222/ Interscope) generated billions of streams. Its US Diamond breakout single “Girls Like You” not only captured #1 at Top 40, #1 at Adult Pop, and #1 on the Bill-board Hot 100, but Was “the most-watched video on VEVO in 2018.” To date it has earned over 3 Bil-lion YouTube/ VEVO views. Parlaying this momentum into another era of Maroon 5, the group’s 2021 album, JORDI (named in memory of their late manager), went gold right out of the gate and marked their seventh consecutive Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200. Executive produced by J Kash, it boasts the quadruple-platinum “Memories,” which became their Tenth Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and marked the band’s Twelfth Top 10 in the last decade; that includes at least one song sent into the Top 10 each year since 2011.

Beyond the platinum-selling “Beautiful Mistakes” [feat, Megan Thee Stallion], JORDI featured the band’s latest single “Lost,’ which landed on all Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists worldwide upon release. Long known for stellar and surprising featured artists outside of pop music JORDI has the band’s most dynamic cohort of collaborators, including Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Stevie Nicks, Acade-my® Award winner H.E.R., late legends Juice WRLD and Nipsey Hussle; blackbear and YG, to name a few.

By looking ahead and challenging themselves and popular culture at every turn, Maroon 5 continue to redefine the modern American band.
