|Maroon 5 live in 2010.|
Every year at the end of December, I make a blog post about the top five things that we can all look forward to as fans of Maroon 5 in the future for the new coming year.
It's safe to say that 2014 has been one of the most monumental years in Maroon 5's career: scoring their 2nd No. 1 album V, achieving their 7th No. 1 Mainstream Pop Songs chart hit with "Animals", causing controversy with Sexual Assault Support Groups, touring with Robin Thicke. The list could go on and on. But we're here to talk about 2015. So let's get started.
5. More new singles and music videos
We can obviously expect more new singles to dominate the radio with and even better music videos to offend the SASG with (okay, maybe not to offend anyone), but Maroon 5's gold-certified V album is chock-full of amazing pop-centric hits that are begging to be looped on pop radio. "Sugar" is set to be released to top 40 radio this January along with it's highly anticipated music video which has a wedding-crash-themed plot. Some options for possible upcoming singles that could takeover 2015 from V would be the promo-single "It Was Always You", the electro-R&B-clash "Unkiss Me", or the disco-EDM driven "Feelings." Or maybe the Gwen Stefani collabo-ballad "My Heart Is Open" will garner some attention and become Maroon 5's next big hit?
4. Maybe a 'Voice' win?
Ok. So the last time we saw Adam Levine win a season of The Voice was over a year ago in December 2013 (season 5) when Levine and his finalist, Jamaican reggae-pop singer Tessanne Chin took home the prize and won the label contract. Since, Usher and his finalist Josh Kaufman won the show's 6th season and Blake and his finalist Craig Wayne Boyd won the recently-ended 7th season. Season 8 is set to kick off in February with a fresh line-up of Levine, Blake, Pharrell, and returning coach Christina Aguilera, and the hit NBC show is signed on for at least 2 more season going into 2016, so we still have 3 seasons to look forward to seeing Levine and a finalist of his possibly take home the grand prize.
3. Maroon children?
What I mean by Maroon children is... yes... maybe we can see Adam and Behati having their first child together as a newly-wed couple. 'Nuff said. Or maybe Matt, Sam, PJ, or Mickey can have a child with their parters? We'll have to just wait and see.
2. Maroon 5 world tour with MAGIC! and Rozzi Crane
When Maroon 5 announced to the world a day prior to the release of their highly anticipated album - V - that they were hitting the road again in 2015, fans were eager to get their hands on those tickets. But when they announced that up-and-coming pop rock group MAGIC! and Rozzi Crane were supporting Maroon 5 on the tour, fans were even more excited. Crane is someone very important to more of the Maroon 5 super fandom than anyone, as she's a gem to Levine, who signed her to his label 222 Recordings in 2012. MAGIC!, who has been parred up to Maroon 5 as one of the reigning pop rock bands of 2014, is one of the year's biggest stars dominating the year with their No. 1 hit "Rude" and are recently further proving their amazement with the recent single, "Let Your Hair Down." The tour kicks off in February in Texas and is set to embark in Europe, North America, and even Africa next year. More dates to be released.
1. "Sugar" music video
We first got word of "Sugar" being the next big hit from Maroon 5 back in September long before the "Animals" video even became a politicized issue, during a live Q&A session on Reddit when keyboardist Jesse Carmichael announced that a music video for "Sugar" was in the works and that the song would serve as the third single from V. Earlier this month, photos of the band on the set of the music video leaked onto the Internet of them dressed dapper in suits and small 6-second Vine clips of the band crashing an actual wedding surfaced. This got fans really anxious and excited to see what the band had in store for the new video, which is expected to drop sometime in late January or early February, reports say.
