Maroon 5 Break Milestone Record In U.K. with 'Payphone'
Maroon 5 scoop their first ever number-one U.K. hit single with their pop rap tune "Payphone", the lead single off the album Overexposed, which is out tomorrow (June 25) in the United Kingdom. The single broke a chart record by being the first number-one act to break the 100,000 sales milestone. In what has been a huge month for chart toppers, Maroon 5 this week help continue the run of form in the UK pop market, racking up an impressive opening week sale for new single Payphone of well over 141,000. That’s only a few hundred copies off the tally managed by Gary Barlow’s Sing following the Diamond Jubilee celebrations a fortnight ago. Cheryl still maintains the record for fastest seller of the year after last week’s Call My Name 152k debut.
Congratulations to Maroon 5 for having their first U.K. Number One hit single! Pick up Overexposed, the new fourth album, on iTunes now!
