Numbers: Maroon 5, "Maps"

Maroon 5, led by singer Adam Levine, is poised to return to the Billboard Hot 100 with buoyant new single "Maps." The song is Maroon 5's first new music since its last album, "Overexposed," dropped nearly two years ago.


"Maps was released just after midnight on June 17 and immediately shot to No. 1 on the real-time Billboard Twitter Trending 140 chart. The band had a 289 percent increase in mentions of its Twitter handle that day, according to Next Big Sound.

17 million

The song logged nearly 1,800 radio plays on June 17, amounting to a one-day audience of 17 million, according to Nielsen BDS - partly due to hourly spins from numerous Clear Channel Media and Entertainment stations.

Industry sources suggest "Maps" might sell 100,000 to 125,000 downloads in the week ending June 22. Combined streams, airplay and sales could mean "Maps" will navigate its way to a top 40 debut on the Hot 100 dated July 5 - the band's 13th top 40 hit.
