fast become the No. 1 track at radio across Canada.
Riding high on a tidal wave of success Maroon 5 drops by MuchMusic's
famed Toronto headquarters on June 14 @ 5pm ET for a guest turn on the
station's fan and celebrity showcase MuchOnDemand. VJ Leah Miller chats with
the soul-inspired quintet about their latest album and upcoming MMVAs
performance. Fans between the ages of 16 - 24 can dial 416-870-6824 for FREE

Also buzzworthy is an hour-long radio special with Maroon 5 airing June
24 @ 6pm ET on 104.5 CHUM FM. The Grammy(TM) winners perform new tracks off
their latest album along with fan favourites from their debut mega smash Songs
About Jane, and dish on their vertical career trajectory with Host Maie Pauts.
