Maroon 5 has the number charting album in the country.

"V," their aptly titled fifth studio album, has arrived at no.1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart thanks to sales of 164,000 copies.

Led by the rising single "Maps," Maroon 5's album is number one, but sales-wise is down from the last effort, 2012's "Overexposed," which debuted at no.2 with 222,000 copies sold.

"Maroon 5 topped the chart once previously, with their second album, 2007's It Won't Be Soon Before Long. That release continues to hold the group's personal best sales week, when the album shifted 429,000 in its debut frame. It Won't Be Soon Before Long followed the group's breakthrough debut album, Songs About Jane, which peaked at No. 6 in 2004 and spent 122 weeks on the chart," reports Billboard.

Jeezy follows Maroon 5 at no.2 with the debut of his album, "Seen It All: The Autobiography."

Moving 121,000 copies, the album also debuts atop the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and Rap Albums chart.

In related news, Maroon 5 has been booked to entertain during Saturday Night Live's 40th season on October 4. They will perform while Sarah Silverman will host.
