"What Lovers Do" is the third single from Maroon 5's upcoming sixth studio album. Last year Adam Levine and co. released "Don't Wanna Know" with Kendrick Lamar and they followed it up with the icy "Cold" featuring Future. The band lightens things up once again on "Lovers" with SZA.
While "Cold" was such a dark track, "What Lovers Do" is a complete contrast with sleek synths and bubbly beats backing Maroon 5's love song. Levine's falsetto hits heavenly levels as he tries his hand at romance. "Ooh, ooh, ooh been wishing for you / Ooh, ooh, trying to do what lovers do," he sings. SZA takes Adam on that bet and comes through as a dreamy duet partner. "Lovers" bottles up that falling in love feeling into an alluring and otherworldly dance track.
"What Lovers Do" featuring SZA is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. No word yet on when to expect the next Maroon 5 album.
