Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as “Best New Artist” of 2005 and going on to sell more than 17 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5’s releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. The band quickly won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, “Songs About Jane” and their double platinum release, “It Won’t be Soon Before Long.” In 2010, the band debuted their third studio album, “Hands All Over,” which featured the group’s anthemic chart-topping smash single “Moves Like Jagger.” The song has since gone on to become one of the best-selling singles of all time. Maroon 5’s last album “Overexposed” reinforced the group’s status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of its singles rising to the top of the charts and setting an all-time record for the most #1s (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart’s 20-year history. The group’s latest release, “V,” debuted at #1 on Billboard’s TOP 200 chart and features the hit singles “Maps” and “Animals,” which just hit #1 on the Top 40 chart and their new single, “Sugar.” On February 16, Maroon 5 will embark on a world tour that kicks off at the American Airlines Center in Dallas and takes them all over North America and then Europe.

With seven solo albums to his credit and multi-platinum sales of over 16 million copies, Juanes is the world’s leading all-Spanish language rock artist - both a two-time Grammy and 20-time Latin Grammy Award winner with nine #1 singles on Billboard’s Latin Singles charts. Hailed by the Associated Press as “the first truly international rock star to emerge from Latin America,” Juanes is also frequently recognized as one of the Spanish-speaking world’s leading social media voices with an online following of over 19 million fans. The Colombian superstar’s dedication as a global activist also extends far beyond his passionate lyrics and is seen in his wide ranging charitable work for his own Mi Sangre Foundation and as a co-founder of the Paz sin Fronteras (Peace Without Borders) organization. Working with famed rock producer Steve Lillywhite, Juanes’ latest album, “Loco De Amor,” debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Latin Pop Albums” chart and topped iTunes sales in over a dozen countries. In addition to already winning a Latin Grammy Award, “Loco De Amor” holds a current Grammy Award nomination for Best Latin Pop Album. The new year has also seen the release of Juanes’ latest single, “Juntos (Together),” recorded for the new Disney movie, “McFarland USA.”



THE VICTORIA’S SECRET SWIM SPECIAL is being produced by done and dusted, inc. Edward G. Razek, Ian Stewart and Hamish Hamilton are the executive producers. Hamish Hamilton is the director.
