Maroon 5's 'Daylight' Meets New Peaks on Pop Songs Chart
Maroon 5 versus the new Billboard Hot 100, "Daylight" meets new peaks, and more!
Last week, Billboard decided to change up a few things in the structure of the Billboard Hot 100 by adding new methodology for formulating views form YouTube videos and likes on music sharing sites like Spotify and Myspace. So, that might not be all cheers for pop rock band Maroon 5, but it sure does help songs the up-the-ante and cause trends such as Baauer's No. 1 Hot 100 hit "Harlem Shake." It is said that "Shake" would have never been a top selling single without the new formula in the Hot 100's mix.
Maroon 5's new single "Daylight" is however climbing up the charts, just not on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Two weeks ago, "Daylight" peaked at No. 7 on the chart after falling last week to No. 13. This week the soft rock track falls a spot from 13-14 on the Hot 100. On other chart notes, "Daylight" falls a spot 15-16 on the Digital Songs chart, moves up a position 7-6 on the Radio Songs chart, jumps 6-5 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart (meeting its new peak on the tally), climbs up 6-4 on the Adult Pop Songs chart, and slides up 8-7 on the Canadian Hot 100 singles chart. "Daylight" may be inching up one by one with each coming week, but it is sure to enter the top three on the Pop Songs chart soon enough.
The band's 2012 No. 1 hit single "One More Night" has its best sales week in over a month. The reggae pop infused track climbs up from 34-33 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. On other chart notes, "One More Night" falls 34-44 on the Digital Songs chart, descends 15-17 on the Billboard Radio Songs chart, stays put at No. 3 on the Adult Contemporary Songs chart, falls 57-63 on the Official U.K. Singles chart, and stays put at No. 31 on the Canadian Hot 100. No, Canada did not mix the new internet feature in to their mix on the Hot 100 (unlike the States).
Maroon 5's Grammy nominated album Overexposed, spent a week in "chart heaven" the last couple weeks after it's price was reduced to $6.99 on Amazon and iTunes Store. Music lovers got the album jumping 20-10 last week on the Billboard 200 albums chart, but this week (after the price change) the album falls 10-21 on the tally. On other chart notes, the album falls 4-16 on the Billboard Digital Albums chart, and stays put at No. 20 on the U.K. Albums chart.
