How is that possible?

Maroon 5? I didn't think that their new album was selling all that great!

Maroon 5 may not be the best band out there, but for pop music, they sure do it right. Good for them.
As for Fergie...well...that's another story.

M5's latest release was solid. It's a shame they get lumped in with mainstream pop and so many from AP won't give it/them a chance.

That's great for Maroon 5. They released a really good album, and quite honestly, I'd much rather have them on top of the charts than some shit like, well... Fergie.

sorority girls everywhere bumped "London Bridge" and "Glamorous" all year long, shouldn't be surprising....


Maroon 5 was good, labels be damned. Baby. Makin'. Music.

this just means that more people were too embarrassed to buy Maroon 5 (or fergie) in the real life store so they had to download it from there basement with itunes. It's the same with porn. God bless the internet anonymity.

only song from any of these artists (other than what's on Kanye's College Dropout and Late Registration, didn't waste money on Graduation after hearing it) I have is Hey There, Delilah but I've had the album since it came out in 05.

wonder what the numbers for Snocap/Myspace are going to show

i agree with y'all. maroon 5's new cd was pretty solid. if that's what pop music is, i can live in this world.

but fergie.... i just don't understand who actually wakes up in the morning and says "hmm, i think i'll buy a fergie album..."

and why buy it on itunes? why not just turn on every radio station in america where all her songs are played 37,000 times an hour anyway.
