Back in January of this year, Adam Levin teamed up with Jason Derulo to create the single «Lifestyle».
Adam Levine, frontman of «Maroon 5», in a conversation with Zane Lowe of Apple Music, expressed regret that the concept of a musical group is rapidly leveling today. Levin said that he often reviews old music clips with daughter. There he sees another, outgoing musical world, in which the groups dominated. «It was a very good time. You don’t remember it because you took it for granted, because it was like when you were growing up, and it was just part of what you had on the radio», the singer assures.
Levin considers groups an endangered breed of musicians. Today is the time for the domination of hybrid groups and bright personalities. This is a new era. But not everyone will be able to accept this new musical world and harmoniously fit into it.
Live communication with the viewer and listener disappears, this was largely facilitated by the pandemic, which, in fact, accelerated the transition of music to online several times. This process, of course, has proceeded before. But not as fast as the last two years. This is a new era, which will largely be determined by the world’s streaming music services, and the creativity of musicians will take a semblance of work on the assembly line of an automobile plant.
It was such negative thoughts regarding the transition of the music industry to online and the departure of the era of musical groups that the famous frontman expressed.
