Are you sitting comfortably? Because Maroon 5 just gave us not one, but two gigantic reasons to get off our seats and do a little victory dance. In an impressive digital era double-whammy, the Adam Levine-fronted band’s “Memories,” a poignant ode from their album Jordi, has waltzed past the one billion view mark on YouTube. The video, a minimalist but emotionally charged tribute inspired by the band’s late manager Jordan Feldstein, has clearly tugged at a billion heartstrings with its intimate light play and the lyrics we all quietly sing when we’re feeling sentimental.
But wait, there’s more sugar to this news! The confectionery sweet hit “Sugar” has dashed beyond a whopping four billion views, putting it in elite company. Who could forget the video that had the band crashing weddings, likely causing every future bride and groom to side-eye any unexpected musicians showing up at their venue? This visual treat from their fifth album, V, showcases a heart-warming day filled with surprised couples, dancefloor euphoria, and a good dose of feel-good frenzy at the nuptials they “crashed”. And with Las Vegas residency dates lined up, Maroon 5 is far from hanging up their musical hat—or should we say crashing their last party?
