Maroon 5 released their new single on June 19 "One More Night", a reggae-jam produced by Max Martin and Shellback who candy covered the band's number-one summer hit last year "Moves Like Jagger." But the Christina Aguilera collaboration doesn't seem to match up with reggae, just like "Night." The new single debuts at No. 42 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, and makes a No. 12 impression on the Billboard Digital Songs chart. The new song follows the release of Overexposed's fronting single "Payphone", featuring Wiz Khalifa, which first charted in late April debuting at No. 3 on the Hot 100. "Payphone" moves up a spot to No. 2 this week, reaching it's new peak, on the Hot 100 singles chart. Over on the Digital Songs chart "Payphone" falls 2-3 while Katy Perry's new synth tune "Wide Awake" beats the gang to the runner-up spot. The song also moves up a spot 3-2 on the Pop Songs chart, 4-3 on the On-Demand chart, and still remains the NO. 1 single in Canada. However for their 2010 album Hands All Over, which still charts freely throughout the Billboard 200 albums chart, it falls into the bad-half descending 100-115. It first peaked almost 2 years ago at No. 2 falling behind Linkin Park... which is coinsidence that the band will be going up against Linkin Park again in this coming sales week. Let's take a look at the bands' head-to-head competition shall we?
