Being added onto the hot list of songs to takeover this summer, Maroon 5 is joining Britney Spears, Iggy Azalea, and Adam Lambert for having the hottest song of the summer.
It was announced earlier today (Wednesday, May 6) by radio man and Billboard magazine editor Sean Ross (@RossOnRadio) that Maroon 5 will be premiering a brand new single entitled "This Summer's Gonna Hurt", which is set to hit radio airplay on Sunday, May 17th and will impact digital retailers on Tuesday, May 26th. A music video for the single was filmed on location in a desert setting last month and is set to premiere sometime this June.
Even though it has not been confirmed by the band or their parent label of Interscope Records, "This Summer's Gonna Hurt" is rumored to be the lead single off of Maroon 5's upcoming re-issue of their fifth studio album V, which dropped last September and topped the Billboard 200. Thus far, V has spawned three top 10 hit singles: "Sugar", "Animals", and it's lead single "Maps."
