MAROON 5

"Maps"

Interscope Records

Maroon 5 has forged an enduring pop presence thanks to a seemingly bottomless collection of indelible refrains, and new single "Maps" sports a shiny new hook for the group to work, courtesy of co-producers Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco. "Maps" isn't as musically complex as recent hits like "One More Night" and "Payphone," but Adam Levine's helium vocals make sure that the listener pays attention. -Jason Lipshutz
