Maroon 5 - Maps.
Maps is an amazing song. The production value is intense. And essentially the best song writers in the world, being Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco. Shellbeck and Max Martin all worked on the same track TOGETHER!!! so naturally, this song is fantastic. It’s an incredible pop song and it is amazing to hear what all these people can achieve together, because Tedder and the other guys are essentially two separate camps. To see them join is incredible and the result is one hell of a pop song.
But to Maroon 5, what a waste of talent. What a waste of opportunity. I think its embarrassing to the band for still calling themselves a band when the other members had nothing to do with the song. And it’s also embarrassing for Blanco and Tedder who will lose credit because people don’t know Maroon 5 had nothing to do with it.
Benny, Ryan, Shellbeck and Max? 4.5
Maroon 5? .5
