Earlier today (Friday, Aug. 7th), it was confirmed by Billboard and Nielsen SoundScan that Maroon 5's fifth studio release, titled V, has surpassed over one-million sales in the United States.
V becomes the Los Angeles pop rock group's fifth platinum-selling album in their entire career. The album was released on September 2 of last year and has spawned 4 top 40 hit singles including the number-one Mainstream Pop Songs hits "Animals" and "Sugar." V was re-released earlier this year in May in support of the band's latest single, "This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like a Motherf***er", which helped boost sales for the album worldwide. V currently sits at No. 18 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and has yet to break the top 30 on the chart since it's initial release last September. It follows-up the band's previous studio album, Overexposed which peaked at one-million in sales in 2014.
Upon the news of V breaking over one-million in sales, the band announced that "Feelings" – a disco-driven dance-pop tune produced by Shellback and Oscar Görres – would serve as the album's fifth and possibly final single from the album. "Feelings" is set to impact contemporary radio stations early next month in celebration of the album's one year anniversary.
