The consensus may be that Maroon 5 delivered a lackluster Super Bowl halftime show, but the gig still earned the band a major sales boost.
According to Billboard, initial reports from Nielsen Music say Maroon 5’s catalog scored a 488 percent sales gain on the day of the big game. It climbed from 4,000 in download sales on Saturday to 24,000 on Sunday.
The six songs the band performed during the halftime show had an even bigger sales boost: 587 percent. Combined sales of “Harder to Breathe,” “This Love,” “Girls Like You,” “She Will Be Loved,” “Sugar” and “Moves Like Jagger” rose from nearly 3,000 sold on Saturday to 18,000 sold on Sunday.
Maroon 5’s special guests for the halftime show, Travis Scott and Big Boi, also saw a bump in sales. Travis’ “Sicko Mode” jumped by 80 percent, while OutKast’s “The Way You Move” – performed by the duo’s Big Boi – had a massive 3,408 percent gain.
