The “Summer” isn’t the only thing that’s been hurting Adam Levine lately. The Maroon 5 front man had to cancel the band’s Liverpool gig earlier this week because of sore vocal chords.
Now it appears, however, that the Voice coach is on the mend, taking to Twitter to announce his return.
Feeling Better today. Saw The Doc. Resuming tour in Birmingham tomorrow! We’re Baaaack!

As reported by the Inquisitr, the Maroon 5 world tour in support of the group’s latest album, V, was in some serious jeopardy following Levine’s announcement that his vocal chords were “toast.” Adam took to Twitter to let his fans know the situation.
Guys, I HATE having to let you down tonight. My chords are toast. We resume Sunday in Birmingham. Apologies. 🙁

Meanwhile, People’s former Sexiest Man Alive used the day off from singing to instead flash some skin as Levine dropped the band’s racy new video for the group’s latest smash single, “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt,” also via his Twitter account yesterday.
Oops… We dropped our new video…https://t.co/wLXh6yZr2i

As the songs synthesizers fade in, The Voice coach enters via a steamy shower. Levine then strides over to the clothes rack where the camera quickly captures his naked butt in full view before panning north toward his back. After the chorus rings a few times, Adam begins singing the explicit lyrics to the song, “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt.” The clip finished with Adam rejoining his band mates on stage.
The new video marks their second one in support of the new summer jam. Already, the song is climbing the charts as reported by Headline Planet. It became the Hot AC’s most added song ahead of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” and Ed Sheeran’s “Photograph,” which snagged second and third, respectively.
The site also reported that the song has vaulted into pop radio’s Top 25, as well, after a full week’s worth of radio airplay.
” ‘This Summer’s Gonna Hurt’ received approximately 4,216 pop radio spins during the May 17-23 tracking week. That earns it the #22 position on Mediabase’s official pop radio airplay chart. Last week, ‘Summer’ leveraged only two weeks of airplay — albeit one that included hourly airplay support from iHeartMedia’s pop stations — to debut at #35 on the official pop chart.”
With his vocal chords healed, Adam Levine can instead focus on belting out “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” on tour.
