Maroon 5 Slips No. 1 In Canada, Gains In YouTube Views

Maroon 5's success over the past several years has been commercially moderate with a number-one single here... and a number-one album there. BUT this year looks like an entirely different success story for the pop rock band. As we approach the retail date for their upcoming fourth studio record Overexposed their lead single "Payphone", featuring Wiz Khalifa is sure helping the anticipation. And not only that, but the music video for the payphone ballad is already gaining so much in YouTube views that is climbed from No. 24 to No. 5 on the chart! You can watch the music video for the single here!

Last week, "Payphone" met it's new peak on the Billboard Hot 100 beating out fun.'s "We Are Young" for the No. 2 spot, but this week it falls back a spot to No. 3. Over on the Billboard Pop Songs chart it grooves up 10-8, on the Digital Songs chart descends a spot 2-3, and on the On-Demand Songs chart stays hold at No. 2. The song's success in sub-genre charts have been dramatically successful as well! It glides 18-13 on the Ringtone Charts, moves up a spot 26-25 on the Adult Contemporary Songs chart, moves 36-29 on the Japan Hot 100, and reached the No. 1 spot in Canada's Hot 100 singles' chart! As of the other charts it stays at No. 7 on the Adult Pop Songs chart and is also stationary at No. 2 on the Myspace Chart.

Rather than fun. and Gotye beating out Maroon 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the top 2, this week the 26-year old Canadian-born-and-raised Carly Rae Jepsen moves 4-2 on the chart and fun. steps back to No. 4. With "Payphone" at No. 3, falling from two last week, Gotye is still of course crowned the No. 1 hottest song in the United States.
