Maroon 5

Maroon 5--and, specifically, its frontman Adam Levine--became the face of blue-eyed soul in the 21st Century, managing to navigate shifting trends in music and fashion to be one of the biggest pop bands of their generation. The band took the long way to the top, evolving from the straight-ahead 1990s rock band Kara's Flowers into the sleek, soulful Maroon 5 with 2002's Songs About Jane, an album that languished for two years until "This Love" climbed to number five on Billboard's Hot 100 in 2004. From that point forward, the group was a fixture at the top of the charts, their popularity receiving a considerable and enduring boost when Levine was cast as a judge on NBC's televised talent competition The Voice in 2011. That year, their Christina Aguilera duet "Moves Like Jagger" gave Maroon 5 their second number one--"Makes Me Wonder" went to the top in 2007--and kicked off a string of Top Ten hits highlighted by the number ones "One More Night" and "Girls Like You," a run that helped secure the band a headlining Super Bowl gig in 2019. "Girls Like You" featured an appearance by Cardi B, a sign of how Maroon 5 kept current by embracing modern R&B and hip-hop. The band followed this blueprint by enlisting Megan Thee Stallion for "Beautiful Mistakes," a lead single from 2021's Jordi.Prior to Maroon 5, bandmates Adam Levine (vocals/guitar), Jesse Carmichael (keyboards), Mickey Madden (bass), and Ryan Dusick (drums) had spent the latter half of the '90s playing in Kara's Flowers, even releasing a debut album for Reprise Records while still attending high school. The record tanked, however, and Kara's Flowers found themselves dropped from Reprise's roster. After briefly attending college, the bandmates regrouped as Maroon 5, adding former Square guitarist James Valentine to the lineup and embracing a more R&B-influenced sound. Several years later, the quintet had officially risen to the forefront of pop music with Songs About Jane and It Won't Be Soon Before Long, both of which went multi-platinum.
