Adam Levine Talks About Wiz Khalifa Collabo


At first, the addition of Wiz Khalifa to Maroon 5's "Payphone" seemed a little bizarre, and yet it works. The song has been standing strong on the charts for weeks, currently sitting at No. 7 on the Hot 100 and No. 6 on the Mainstream Top 40 chart. "We wanted some other element that took it in a different direction," Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine tells Billboard, "and it just made sense to go with Wiz." The band was already a fan of the 24-year-old rapper, so getting him on the record was "a huge score," added Levine. "We all agreed the song needed to have a bit. . . it was a little clean, it needed to have a bit of dirt on it." With lyrics like "Switched the number to my phone / So you could never call it" and "Go and take that little piece of sh*t with you," Khalifa's verse added the grit that the otherwise "poppy pop song" lacked, said Levine.

Adam Levine Talks About 'Gay Marriage', His Outlook on His Brother's Homosexuality

Adam Levine.

Maroon 5 frontman talks about his opinion and thoughts on the world's gay perception.

In a recent interview with PrideSource.com, the opened-minded Voice judge explained a thing or two about his stance on legalizing gay marriage — something he says has little to do with have a gay brother, Michael:

"I would feel the same way regardless. I happen to have a gay brother, but that doesn't mean I'm more of an advocate for equal human rights. It's just so silly and it doesn't make any sense to me that you wouldn't be able to marry whomever you want to marry. It's not our business. I don't know why we're obsessed with making everything in this country our business, all the time. We just need to make it legal and stop caring so much. It doesn't matter. And it shouldn't matter. It's just not anyone's business except the people involved."

Adam adds that people' justifications for being against gay marriage just "doesn't check out." He says:

"Whenever I hear people's reasoning behind it, I think to myself: First of all, marriage isn't always successful anyway. Look at the divorce rate and all the things that go wrong with marriage. Whether it's gay or straight, there are issues with it. Clearly people have a hard time staying together, and that's just a sad truth about marriage in our society. People should be allowed to succeed and fail at marriage as they so desire."

The Voice Press Conference Photos, New Twist Added to Third Season


The Voice set up a press conference earlier this week on Sunday (August 12) to discuss the third season. Coaches Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, and Blake Shelton made an appearance as well as media hostess Christina Milian and producer Mark Burnett. 

Several photos were shot at the press event and you can view them on our Facebook page right now! Click here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.334242863336884.76488.302132356547935&type=1

And now for the twist... "We all just wondered, what is it that we can do during the battles to keep the competitive element going," Burnett said. Pit the judges against each other some more!

The first two seasons saw two contestants facing off in front of their coach during the battle rounds, with the losing singer going home. This season, the rival coaches will be able to steal contestants that have been sent home.  If more than one coach hits their red buzzer, the contestant--similar to the bling audition rounds--decides which coach he or she wants to switch to. Each coach can save two contestants, leaving them with 10 singers instead of 8.


How will the new twist for the new season look like on our television screens this coming fall on NBC? Tune in September 10th at 8/7pm CPT to watch the premier of season three of The Voice

Music Mondays: Grouplove Gets 'Tongue Tied'


Hey guys! We are doing a new weekly blog every Monday called 'Music Mondays. Other bands and artists on Twitter and other social networks are becoming more fluent in the subject, helping promote up and coming or undiscovered talents who's music is more relevant to their sound and what might their fans like.  

We are moving on from Las Vegas native indie rock group Imagine Dragons and moving out to the suburbs of Las Angeles, California. Alternative rock band GROUPLOVE is compiled of five members who were all just strangers wanting to create rock music. In 2011, they released their debut album Never Trust A Happy Song and it peaked at No. 17 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. With it's success, the band peaked atop the Billboard Alternative Songs chart with the song "Tongue Tied", which would soon become a summer smash hit. The song peaked at No. 42 on the Hot 100 singles chart and No. 10 in Canada. The song was featured in an ad for Apple's new iPod Touch commercial in September 2011, gaining their fans. The group's newest single "Itchin' for a Photograph" is currently slowly climbing the charts.

Maroon 5 Ties One Republic for Most Weeks in Top Three on Hot 100

Maroon 5's single "Payphone", featuring rapper Wiz Khalifa, has seemingly tied up for the single with the most weeks spent in the top three on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. The song never peaked atop the chart, at No. 1, as it dipped from Nos. 3-5 this week on the tally. The tune spent fifteen weeks in the top three bouncing between positions 2 and 3. 

If "Payphone" does not receive a call back to the top three, it will have equaled the top three runs of these non-No. 1s: LeAnn Rimes' "How Do I Live," Shania Twain's "You're Still the One" and Timbaland featuring OneRepublic's "Apologize." All four songs peaked at No. 2.
 
It could have been worse -- at least "Payphone" reached No. 2. There are those hits that stall out at No. 3 for weeks upon weeks, but never go higher. Take Real McCoy's 1994 hit "Another Night," for example. The song spent 11 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 3, but never went any higher. In turn, it secured the record as the song with the most weeks stuck at No. 3 in the Hot 100's history.
