While Maroon 5’s Super Bowl halftime show didn’t exactly get positive reviews from fans online, it was apparently enough to boost their record sales.
According to Nielsen music, sales of Maroon 5’s catalog went up 488%, while the six songs they performed, “Harder to Breathe, “This Love,” “Girls Like You,” “She Will Be Loved,” “Sugar” and “Moves Like Jagger,” saw a 587% increase.
Meanwhile, Travis Scott and OutKast’s Big Boi also saw some sales gains. Scott’s “Sicko Mode” saw an 80% sales increase, while OutKast’s “The Way You Move,” gained 3,408%, and Big Boi’s “Kryptonite,” went up 2,091%.
From now on, Panic! At The Disco fans may want to keep a respectful distance from frontman Brendon Urie. During a recent livestream on his Twitch account , the singer asked fans to “stop kissing” him during shows.
During a typical Panic concert, Urie does what they call the “death walk,” where he enters the audience when they play “Death of a Bachelor.” Urie says fans have tried to kiss and even lick him during the “death walk.” “Please stop kissing me on the death walk,” he said during the stream.
But it’s not just a friendly warning, the band’s road manager Zack Hall recently took to Twitter to really make the boundaries clear. “I’m done with this crap of kissing Brendon during the ‘death walk,’” he wrote. “If I see it, you will be kicked out of the show right away. The end.”
Mariah Carey poses with John Travolta: Mariah Carey performed at Austria's Glock Horse Performance Center this weekend, where she apparently ran into John Travolta.

The Chainsmokers & 5 Seconds of Summer tease collaboration : It looks like fans can expect a new collaboration between The Chainsmokers and 5 Seconds of Summer. Both acts teased the track with a video and the caption, “Who Do You Love?," with both teases tagging @amazonmusic in the post, so it’s pretty safe to assume it will debut there. The Chainsmokers video has the band members talking about what they are in to, with Alex Pall mentioning 5SOS. The 5SOS clip has them finding an Alexa in the middle of a mountainous landscape, and asking it to follow The Chainsmokers.
