"Someday" is a song released from Rob Thomas' second album, Cradlesong. It was released as the album's third single in September 2009 only in digital format, and followed as a physical release in December 2009

It debuted at No. 93 on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 59.[2] It has since become Thomas's third career No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Top 40 chart as a solo artist, and fourth overall, also extending his top-five singles streak on the format to seven (eight when including his collaborative hit "Smooth").

Music video[edit]

The music video was released on 15 September 2009 and is directed by Alan Ferguson.[3] It captures Rob Thomas wandering through a parade in downtown New York City.[4] "The coolest part was just filming the parade," Rob told Entertainment Weekly about the shooting process. "We had a lot of fans come down, and we dressed them all up and had a bunch of gigantic floats flying around." The video shows many people holding up picket signs with quotes such as "We're all one world," or "Peace please."
