Maroon 5's Album Reached #1, Set Record in iTunes



Apart from gaining the biggest sale of the week according to Billboard chart, Maroon 5's album also breaks iTunes record.

Five years span from one album to another apparently has worked out effectively for Maroon 5. After great success of "Songs About Jane", the band's sophomore set "It Won't Be Soon Before Long" quickly moved 429,000 copies in the first week of its release.

The new album is also regarded the most popular release of all time according to iTunes. A pre-sale of 50,000 digital download topped with a one week sale of 101,000 albums on iTunes has broken previous new record release. "The band's extensive fanbase has spoken: they clearly love the new album and special content exclusives available on iTunes," said President of A and M/Octone Records, James Diener.

The album snatched the #1 spot in Billboard Hot 200, knocking off Linkin Park with their mega-selling album "Minutes to Midnight".
