The fourth single from the album, it followed the reissue of the band's fifth studio album, V, on May 15, 2015.[4] Musically, the song has been described as having a "synthpop sound",[1] while incorporating an arena rock style.[5]

Background[edit]

On May 6, 2015, it was rumored that Maroon 5 were to release a brand new single titled "This Summer's Gonna Hurt" on May 26, 2015, to radio airplay, the following day, it was confirmed by Billboard magazine in an article stating that "This Summer's Gonna Hurt" would be released ahead of the band's upcoming reissue of their album V (2014) and follow the band's single "Sugar".[6] On May 11, 2015, the band officially announced that the single would be released on May 15.

Composition[edit]

According to the sheet music published on musicnotes.com, the song is composed in the key of E minor with a moderate tempo.[7]

Chart performance[edit]

During the May 17–23 tracking week, “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” received approximately 4,216 pop radio spins, that earned it the number 22 position on Mediabase’s official pop radio airplay chart. The following week, “Summer” leveraged only two days of airplay to debut at number 35 on the official pop chart. “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” also reached the top 25 at hot adult contemporary radio. After debuting at number 44, the song jumped to number 23 on its second week, after receiving 1,457 tracking week spins,[8][9] after peaking at number 23, the song became the band's first official single release in five years to miss the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.[10]

Music video[edit]

Background[edit]

A music video for the song was filmed during a live concert at SSE Arena Wembley on May 28, 2015, it was directed by Travis Schneider and Adam Levine and was released on May 30, 2015. In the video there is a scene where Levine's buttocks are fully exposed, because of this in the video there is a content warning and the requirement that viewers sign in (to verify their age).[11] A clean version of music video was released on June 12, 2015. While most of the scene are retained from the original music video, the scenes about nudity, kissing and his mouth speaking profanity has been covered by different emojis, while the word "fucker" has been replaced by "AHA" instead of bleeping the sounds.[12]

Synopsis[edit]

The video starts with Adam Levine coming out of the bathroom and goes to cloakroom, after dressing up there, he starts to walk in the corridor. He takes to the stage where the audience greets him and the group performs the song live. When the performance ends the group members descend the stage and go to sit in their cars to go.

Reception[edit]

The music video was received with positive response from most critics. Daniel Kreps of Rolling Stone wrote humorously that the video is revealing for two reasons; "First, it offers a candid look at life on tour through the eyes of Adam Levine as the viewer journeys with the singer from the dressing room to backstage to the edge of the catwalk at a massive arena. Secondly, the video is revealing because Levine flashes some unexpected nudity"[13]
