I think all of us know that Maroon 5 is an awesome band. Their last album “Overexposed” is very popular and nice album. Two singles of this album already reached at Billboard’s top chart. So, now it’s time to know about them.

Bob Cavallo; management team heard this record, which eventually led to their deal with Reprise Records. After that they released “The Fourth World” in 1996.
