Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...

Shortly after its release, "Maps" quickly reached number one on the Billboard Twitter Real Time Trending 140 chart, eventually staying within the upper ranks for several hours. The song also logged close to 1,800 first-day spins on radio which, according to the Nielsen BDS, would amount to a one-day audience impression of seventeen million.It has since peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100. It reached its million sales mark in August 2014[8] and had sold 1.6 million copies by the year's end.

The single debuted at number two on the UK Singles Chart in late August 2014.

As "Maps" topped the eight biggest music charts in South Korea, Maroon 5 became the first foreign artist to top several charts at the same time in Korean music history.

The song finds Levine singing about retaining hope for a relationship despite his girl abandoning him when he was going through a tough time.

The song's music video was directed by Peter Berg, who is best known for helming the films Friday Night Lights and Hancock as well as his acting role on the TV series Chicago Hope. He also previously directed Maroon 5's visual for "One More Night."

The clip follows a backwards narrative format, as it recounts the death of Adam Levine's girlfriend after getting hit by a car in Los Angeles. The storyline is inspired by the 2000 film Memento.
The song was brought in by Tedder and Blanco. Guitarist James Valentine told Billboard magazine it was, "just sort of workshopped" into its eventual form. "It really has those elements of The Police that have always been a huge, huge influence on us," he said. "We're usually trying to do stuff that sounds contemporary but is still classic. I mean, everybody says that. That's what they're always going for. I think that song sort of achieves that, at least in my mind."
