Maroon 5 stands out as not only one of pop music’s most enduring artists, but also one of the 21st century’s biggest acts. The band won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, Songs About Jane. To date, the universally renowned Los Angeles band have achieved three GRAMMY® Awards, over 80 million in album sales, 450 million singles worldwide and earned gold and platinum certifications in more than 35 countries.
Released in the summer of 2021, Maroon 5’s current studio album, JORDI (222/Interscope), features the band’s latest hit single “Beautiful Mistakes” featuring Megan Thee Stallion. “Beautiful Mistakes” was the No. 1 most added at Top 40 and Hot AC when it impacted radio and charted in the Top 20 on the HOT 100, Top 40 and Hot AC charts. JORDI also includes the band’s recent hits “Nobody’s Love” and “Memories,” which has surpassed a groundbreaking 1 billion Spotify streams and amassed over 700 million YouTube views.
Maroon 5’s last studio album, Red Pill Blues, featured the global hit single “Girls Like You” which reached No. 1 at Top 40, No. 1 at Adult Pop, and No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for seven consecutive weeks. The track accumulated over 1.2 billion Spotify streams and over 3 billion YouTube/VEVO views; notably becoming the most-watched video on VEVO in 2018.
Paisley, 49, has carved a country music career spanning over two decades that could lead him on a path to future enshrinement into Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame. The Tennessee resident and West Virginia native has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 2001. His singing, songwriting and showmanship have won him three GRAMMY® Awards, two American Music Awards, 14 Country Music Association (CMA) Awards and 15 Academy of Country Music Awards, among many other accolades.
Paisley has written 21 of his 24 No. 1 hits and, in 2008, he became the first artist to achieve 10 consecutive Billboard Country Airplay No. 1 singles. The 2010 CMA Entertainer of the Year’s past works have amassed over 3.9 billion on-demand streams.
