Adam Levine Talks About Yoga in Men's Health



Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine talks about his passion for yoga

Adam Levine is one of the biggest pop stars of our time in the biggest band of our generation. How does he stay healthy and fit? Yoga. Singer Adam Levine is in the best shape of his life, thanks to his daily practice of yoga. The workout regimen has not only made him lean and sinewy, but calm and centered.


Adam Levine, who weighs a wiry 165 pounds, says yoga has enabled him to better channel his nervous energy.

"I have a hard time sitting still," says Levine, who follows a mostly vegan diet. "I can be all over the map. Yoga has given me the ability to be more focused and make better decisions that come from a clear place."

Adam, who's a judge on the reality TV competition "The Voice," is in the midst of a grueling 30-city tour with Maroon 5. Yoga helps him maintain his physical stamina and mental focus despite his hectic schedule.

"A lot of times people will think, 'I'm strong, I'm in shape; why can't I do this pose?' " says Levine, who couldn't touch his toes when he began doing yoga in 2006. "But that's not the point. There's nothing to win in yoga. You just do what you can do, one day to the next."

Levine, who's frequently on tour, says yoga is the most convenient way to exercise when he's on the road.

"You don’t need anything but a few feet of space and a mat," he says. "And I can always find at least an hour a day to practice. Yoga will drastically improve you in every way imaginable."

New Chart Updates

Billboard's new adjustment to the site's database causes more disadvantages

Billboard has made a more-of-a-slight adjustment on their website earlier this week as well as a new design on their magazines.

Due to the progressive change in Billboard's database, our weekly chart updates will be a little less utilized and chart data history will be more of a "hassle" to gather. We have taken a snapshot of Maroon 5's current chart rankings highlighted under their web name on Billboard.com and this is what all chart previews will look like from now on (see imagine below).


The sudden change has made it a little more difficult to gather weekly chart information now that there is no display option for the chart rankings. However, we will still provide you the news you need to know on where Maroon 5 charts each and every week such as the Billboard 200, Billboard Hot 100, and Billboard Pop Songs charts. 

Thanks,

River.

PJ Morton Premieres 'Only One' Single


PJ Morton Releases Stevie Wonder-Assisted "Only One" Single

PJ Morton released his new single "Only One" earlier today (Mon, Jan. 28) from his upcoming album New Orleans, which is set to drop on May 14, 2013 under Young Money Records. The single samples a jazz and soul sound with piercing drum beats and carries a highly catchy chorus with memorable versus in between.

Long time soul veteran Stevie Wonder is featured on the track playing the harmonica and other notable instruments such as the keyboard and backing vocals.





"Stevie is my biggest influence," he told Billboard of the collaboration. "Out of anybody, Stevie's really the one that I studied the most growing up in music, so we literally tried everything to get him on the song."

Morton said he met with Stevie Wonder personally and then followed up with the idea of the collaboration. Thanks to the positive response from both Wonder and an associate in his camp, the inclusion of the music legend on the track came to fruition.

"'New Orleans' for me is getting back to when I initially fell in love with music and when I just did music just because I had fun doing it," he said. "That was before I understood the radios, marketing, all of that. I thought I was going to sell one billion records just because it was good. My first major label debut album is because of that city, so I feel like 'New Orleans' sums up everything I wanted to say."

PJ Morton is currently prepping for a North American tour with band mates Adam Levine, Mickey Madden, and the guys of Maroon 5 to promote their newest album Overexposed, which dropped on June 26 last year.

Adam Levine on SNL: What the Critics Are Saying


'The Voice' Coach Makes Hosting Debut and Pleases Many Critics

Adam Levine made his big hosting debut on Saturday Night Live last night (Jan. 26) on NBC and did more than just a fine job. In fact, it caught the attention of many critics and news renders. Let's take a look at what everyone thought of the Maroon 5 lead singer's stint.

New York Times

The New York Times weighed in on what they thought about one of the most anticipated episode's of the season last night. They called Adam Levine one of the 'hottest rockers to become a host' on the show. "It's crazy to think that someone who has only been on reality TV can pursue such acting on Saturday Night Live." Later comparing the episode to Bruno Mars' hosting episode, they said "Adam Levine's masculine body adds up for all of the conceptual acting however, something Bruno Mars didn't need."

Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone magazine quickly engaged on their thoughts on the first timer's episode last night. Editor and publisher Logan Nicklaus said it "reminded him of high school" when hot and slightly attractive frontmen of bands and hip hop rappers starred on Saturday Night Live. "Adam Levine took to the stage for his monologue, dapper in a suit, yet perfectly unshaven. But perhaps in his week with the SNL writers, at some point he realized that he badly needed to hide his insecurities."

Huffington Post

The guys of the Huffington Post seemed slightly convinced that Adam Levine was simply looking for another way to exert his attention in a comedic view, as a slight cry for attention. "So, here's what we learned last night: Adam Levine is not a particularly good "SNL" host," the article began. "Levine certainly didn't phone it in but, like many a musical guest-turned-host before him, this just really didn't work out. At least he gave a nice effort though." Their comment on the 'Maroon 5 and Train' sketch was rather amusing: It just had "this should be much better" written all over it. Sure, Levine is a good sport to mock his own musical stylings. But, in the end, nothing really happened."

Watch the introduction Adam Levine gave from last night's episode here:

Adam Levine Rocks 'SNL' As First Time Host, New 'YOLO' Single with Lonely Island


Adam Levine's 'SNL' Hosting Debut Turns Out Spectacular

It is safe to say that Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine blew everybody's minds off on Jan. 26th episode of Saturday Night Live as a first time host on the late night comedy show, participating in numerous skits including him getting in a rave with Train and portraying Neil Diamond. The episode grossed over 1.1 million audience viewers in the United States alone, making it the second best episode with the most impressions in this season alone following Bruno Mars' episode.

Adam Levine also featured in the new Lonely Island single "Y.O.L.O (No No)", also featuring rapper Kendrick Lamar, which was shown on the show as well. The single will soon be available for digital download on iTunes Store.

Prince Speaks About Maroon 5's Cover, Slams Madonna


Prince says Maroon 5's "Kiss" cover is unnecessary

In a recent interview with Billboard magazine  pop veteran and Minnesota musician Prince spook a few words about Maroon 5's rock and roll twist on the cover of "Kiss", and shared his thoughts about Madonna's fame life.

Maroon 5 recorded a cover of Prince's No. 1 1986 hit single "Kiss", which was off of the album Parade. The pop rock band went out of their comfort zone and reevaluate the song's texture and sound by adding a lengthy rock 'n roll spin on to the track. "Why do we need to hear another cover of a song someone else did?" he quips in the interview, noting that he has no problem with artists performing covers during live shows. "Art is about building a new foundation, not just laying something on top of what's already there."

The "Kiss" cover is featured on Maroon 5's deluxe edition of their fourth album Overexposed, released last June., peaking at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart.

Prince and Madonna, also 54, famously tussled in the public eye after briefly dating in 1985 and collaborating on Madonna's track "Love Song" from her 1988 album Like a Prayer. "It was always about Madonna," he tells the magazine, explaining why his relationship with the record label went sour. "She was getting paid, but at the same time we were selling more records and selling out concerts on multiple nights."


Prince is on the new issue of Billboard magazine. Read more about it here:

Daylight Moves Up on Digital Songs Chart


"Daylight" soon to be Maroon 5's greatest digital post album release single?

Maroon 5 is undeniably climbing the charts with each passing week with the single "Daylight", moving up the Billboard Digital Songs chart jumping from 20-13 on the chart. The soft rock track is becoming one of the band's highest selling post album release singles in history since "Moves Like Jagger", featuring Christina Aguilera, was released in 2011, over a year after the release of their 2010 studio set Hands All Over. "Jagger" took approximately eleven weeks before making a mark on the Digital Songs chart, as it is only taking "Daylight" nine weeks since it's radio airplay release date in November. 

The Max Martin soft rock produced track is also getting comfortable sitting in the top 40 in charts marketing in over 10 countries around the world. The song entered at No. 19 in Australia according to the A.R.I.A. In other countries "Daylight" sits at No. 8 in Belgium, No. 15 in Canada, No. 11 in New Zealand, No. 5 in South Korea, and of course moving up 25-21 on the Billboard Hot 100 here in the United States. On other chart notes, "Daylight" holds in at No. 17 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart, takes a leap from 27-18 on the Billboard Radio Songs chart, jumps 20-13 on the Digital Songs chart, and moves up 15-13 on the Adult Pop Songs chart.

Maroon 5's former nine week No. 1 single "One More Night" spends its second week out of the Billboard Hot 100's top ten at No. 11 again. "Night" is seemingly descending on the charts in the United States except however for the Adult Contemporary Songs chart in which the reggae-pop fused track moves up 8-5 on the tally. On other chart notes, the single falls a spot from 10-11 on the Billboard Pop Songs Chart, falls 5-6 on the Radio Songs chart, descends 27-31 on the Digital Songs chart, spends its second week on the Streaming Songs chart falling 15-16, stays put at No. 16 on the On-Demand Songs chart, and falls 5-7 on the Adult Pop Songs chart. Over in Canada, "One More Night" falls 11-15 on the Canadian Hot 100 singles chart.

The band's 2012 studio album Overexposed spends its thirtieth week on the U.S. Billboard 200 Albums chart falling 19-30 on the tally. It became Maroon 5's only album to stay in the top thirty on the Billboard 200 albums chart without leaving the top thirty since the band's 2007 released It Won't Be Soon Before Long spent 34 weeks in the top thirty after debuting at No. 1 on the chart. On other chart notes, Overexposed jumps 18-15 on the Digital Albums chart, and falls 21-25 on the Canadian Albums chart.

Adam Levine Talks with On Air with Ryan Seacrest



Adam Levine Talks with Seacrest on Morning Show About The Voice, SNL Gig

Adam Levine called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk with Ryan about his exclusive scoop on his gig hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, on Saturday, Jan. 26th. He also talked about season 4 of The Voice and how he fits in with the newer coaches.

Adam talked about his stint on Saturday Night Live and what he had to do to prepare for the big night. “We’re getting down to the nitty gritty as far as deciding what we’re going to do and how we’re going to do it," he said to Seacrest. "I don’t want to play it safe. I think that that’s pretty much the consensus that I don’t want to be lobbed things to kind of easily knock out. I want to be a part of the show as much as I possibly can. So, that’s my goal,” Adam says. So, is he nervous? “I’m trying not to think about that too much, because it will become that and then I’ll freak out. It’s mostly just really fun, a blast, it’s super cool, and very, very rare that anyone gets to do it…Life just kind of continues at this point to be surreal and amazing. It’s a trip…Things just continue to happen, these amazing milestones just continue.”

Adam tells the on air crue about NBC's season 4 of The Voice, “We did the blind auditions. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to talk about that, but we did.” Shakira and Usher will be joining “The Voice” for season 4. “I had never met Shakira before. I had met Usher, we had just kind of crossed paths and we have friends in common. He’s always been nothing but wonderful, a super nice guy, obviously a great talent, and it’s great to have him on the show. Shakira I really only met the first day of shooting, who is so wonderful, so sweet, so rad, so amazing, she’s a badass.”

Love Somebody: 3 Hints As to If It's the Next Video

Maroon 5's Next Video & Single Might Be "Love Somebody"?

Maroon 5's on the go with their newest single "Daylight", from their fourth studio set Overexposed, which was released just a few months ago for radio airplay, and a music video that dropped right before the holidays, so what's the controversy of the "Love Somebody" music video shoot?

We got you're answers.

Personally, I don't have any resources stating that "Love Somebody" is indeed the next single and the next video, however there are clues as to how it just might be.


Instagram Leak? Adam Levine and Jeff Dotson

A photo of Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine and director and long time music video screenplay writer Jeffrey Dotson was uploaded to photo sharing network Instagram earlier today (Jan 18) using hash tags #adamlevine #maroon5 #fistpump #behindthescenes. BIG CLUE.








Adam Levine covered in blue with a model

Sir Adam Levine was on the set of the (supposed video) shoot with a model. Who exactly? Her name is Emily Ratajkowski which is apparently played as the partner in the love-hate relationship on the music video.













A band performance from a Behind the Scenes perspective.

We can see a glimpse of Maroon 5 drummer Matt Flynn in this clear cut shot which was uploaded to an Adam Levine fan site earlier this week. We get a behind the scenes view and perspective of this shot of the making of the new video.









Well there you have it. All of the suspicious, visible clues we've kept getting feed to this week. It's safe to say there's a music video shoot going on, but is it for "Love Somebody"? Or is it for what some think is for the funk rock song "Ladykiller"? We'll have to see.

People's Choice Awards: Maroon 5 Wins Favorite Band


Maroon 5 Took Home Favorite Band at the 2013 People's Choice Awards

Let's try to figure this out. Jensen and Jared of the show Supernatural presented the award for Favorite Band, and it just happened to be our very own Maroon 5. Unbelievable! Maroon 5 won their first award of the night up against the likes of  No Doubt, Green Day, and let's not forgot the chart competitors Linkin Park. Park's album Living Things debuted atop the Billboard 200 last July beating out Maroon 5's Overexposed to the No. 1 spot on the chart. But it looks good for Maroon 5 this time! With all of the tremendous success over the past year, the No. 1 Hot 100 single "One More Night" and having the highest grossing digital song of the year, "Payphone", featuring Wiz Khalifa, it only made sense.



However for the band's other nominations for the 2013 PCA's, Katy Perry and her video for "Part of Me" took home the award for Favorite Music Video. Boy band One Direction also took home the award for Favorite Album for their record Up All Night.

Maroon 5 Allies One Republic Dropping Native in March

The band recently performed the new single "If I Lose Myself" on Dick Clark's Rockin' New Years Eve with Ryan Seacrest on December 31 to introduce the song's appeal.

"We're stoked to actually have this thing come out because we haven't put out an album in three years now and frankly I don't really want to do that again," Tedder told Billboard. "I think the world's changed, musically and that's like the worst thing you can do as an artist today is to just disappear for three years. To just go away."

Adam Levine Part-Took in Writing for Native



One Republic's Ryan Tedder also issued the Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine took part in writing material for the band's new album. A demo called "Love Lost" was said to have been written by Levine, Tedder, and producer Greg Wells, and may feature on Native's standard album list. Ryan wrote and produced Maroon 5's song's "The Man Who Never Lied" and "Lucky Strike" for the band's newest album Overexposed, which dropped last June.

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.
