Maroon 5 Make Top Ten Digital Songs of 2012... Twice
Maroon 5's success over the past year is unlike any other band's mainstream success, we know. But who knew that the band would park it not only once... but TWICE in the top ten on the highest selling singles of last year?
The L.A-based band's single "Payphone", featuring Wiz Khalifa, landed at No. 4 on the the list, selling 490,000 copies in it's first week and selling an overall whopping 4.76 million copies all year. The band's second Overexposed single "One More Night" plants it at No. 10 on the top list selling 12,000 in it's first week due to the album's retail release, and selling an overall 3.46 million throughout the year. "Night"'s success on the charts was remarkable, sitting comfortable at No. 1 on the Hot 100 for 9 weeks in a row, tying Carly Rae Jepsen's single "Call Me Maybe" for the longest running No. 1 single of the year. "Payphone"'s position on the Hot 100 chart only peaked at No. 2 for weeks and weeks on end, debuting at No. 3, but still make records for the highest selling first week copies sold online.
Now let us with this week's current chart notes.
Maroon 5's previous No. 1 single "One More Night" is slowly descending off the Billboard Hot 100 chart's top ten. Last week, it slipped from 6-7 on the tally, while this week it fell 7-8. On other chart notes, "Night" falls 7-10 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart, stays put at No. 4 on the Radio Songs chart, same thing on the On-Demand Songs chart staying put at No. 11, moving up 14-11 on the Canadian Hot 100 singles chart, and falls a spot from 4-5 o the Adult Pop Songs chart. As "Night" falls slowly off the Adult Pop chart and the Hot 100, the band's new single "Daylight" is starting to gain in recognition on the charts.
"Daylight" takes a leap from 46-42 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, stays put at No. 19 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart, also stays put at No. 38 on the Radio Songs chart, descends 40-44 on the Digital Songs chart, falls a few from 26-30 on the Canadian Hot 100 singles chart, and moves up two spots from 20-18 on the Adult Pop Songs chart. "Daylight" is looking at a big debut next week on the Adult Contemporary Songs chart, while the song's audience appeal on Hot AC charts is gaining over 4.03% over the past few days. Since the song's mainstream release (on Nov. 27) it gained over 12% from it's original stand-put since it's retail release on June 26th.
The band's new album Overexposed, released on June 26th, was on sale over on Amazon's music store on the internet for only $4.99 and over the holidays it was a tad bit more for $7.99 on the iTunes Store. The pop infused album jumps from 28-19 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart, as well as moving up 18-14 on the Canadian Albums chart.
