If you have not heard of the South Korean based music awards show Gaon Chart Music Awards, it's okay, we haven't either. The Gaon Chart Music Awards, also known as the K-Pop Music Awards, is important because it is equivalent to the Billboard Music Awards here in the United States. The show awards artists, locally or internationally renown, by their success on the Gaon Music Charts, a chart based in South Korea.

Maroon 5 just recently won the award for International Song Of the Year, for their 2016 hit single "Don't Wanna Know", featuring rapper Kendrick Lamar. This is the Los Angeles-based band's fourth non-consecutive win at the award show. They have won the same category three other times. The band won for "Moves Like Jagger", featuring Christina Aguilera, in 2011, "Payphone", featuring Wiz Khalifa, in 2012, and for "Maps" in 2014. Two other international artists have won this category before on the Gaon Chart Music Awards, being Adele ("Hello in 2015) and DJ Bad Gollum ("The Bad Touch" in 2013).
Congratulations to Maroon 5 on their big win overseas in South Korea!
The band recently released their new single, "Cold", featuring Future, which is now available to stream and purchase everywhere. Maroon 5 is also currently on tour in North America in support for their latest album V, which you can see full dates and ticket information here.
