People say NO to new Maroon 5 single. Radio says yes. Why?

Truth Teller

Maroon 5 unleashed a new artistic creation onto the unsuspecting and uninterested public 10 days ago. The song's reception was lukewarm, despite the lead single treatment (#1 debut on TTH, radio deal, music video). I guess that's justifiable since that was Taylor's week, but... it's not getting better.

 

Spotify US : #80 (#7 on TTH with a 100M playlist reach)

Apple Music US : #213

US iTunes : #47

YouTube : #332 (6 million views in 10 days)

 

HOWEVER, it is today's biggest airplay gainer with a whopping increase of 2.2 million and is already in the top 20 on both pop and HAC!

 

POP : 19 (+2) MAROON 5 : + 394 spins / +1.262 audience
HOT AC : 14 (+1) MAROON 5 : +192 spins / +0.704 audience

 

This begs the following questions :

1. Will people eventually come to like it after it's been forcefed to them or will it continue underperforming?

2. Will radio continue to shove it down their throats until it catches on or will they only carry it for a short time?

3. Why is radio reluctant to pick up -and quick to drop- songs by female artists that sell and stream better (ROM) or the same (Daisies)

4. When will this stop?

It's Maroon 5, since Moves Like Jagger and Payphone radio has played everything by Adam Levine and friends to DEATH.

Cuz it’s clearly a song that just didn’t stick with the public? Anyways, those radio updates are clearly still part of a radio deal (which most big acts get). The radio updates will obviously slow down if ITunes/Spotify positions don’t rise.

 

Yall love to throw this narrative that M5 is only successful because of radio :rip:

 

Lets look at their most recent singles (15+ years into their career must I add):

 

GLY: 3B Youtube / 1.3B Spotify

Memories: 556M Youtube / 850M Spotify

*These two song were also monstrous on ITunes

Maybe the fact that Maroon 5 have consistently scored hits in almost every era? I mean I don’t like M5 at all, but most of the GP clearly does, payola can’t buy streams.

The radio says yes to everything Maroon 5 no matter how bad it may be. As long as it's Maroon 5 they will play it over and over and over again.

maybe it's not only because of radio but it's definitely not because they are releasing quality songs :rip: with these generic ass (but not unlistenable) songs you get familiar with time over time if theyre constantly played and then eventually you'll start to like it

radio will probably drop it soon, considering people are saying no, cause they clearly said yes to Memories (which I dislike).

And? Most of the time the top 40 is filled of trash, why are you guys acting like this is a crime ? :rip:

Anyway, M5 has had constant payola for the last 10 years, it's actually ridiculous at this point but I'm not even surprised anymore :skull:

How dare they to put them at #1 after their previous two singles were only streamed 1,282b and 849m times! :dies:

I know, I failed to bold the whole sentence. Blame the GP for liking their songs if you hate them that much. The fact remains that they generate interest that some girls don’t ever since 2006. :giraffe:
