Maroon 5 dropped their latest summer single on Wednesday night, along with an accompanying new music video! Watch the video for "Girls Like You" featuring Cardi B by playing the video above, and download this new version of the song now on iTunes.
"Girls Like You" was originally released as a Maroon 5-only song on their latest album Red Pill Blues; you can hear the original version of the song here. But in keeping with their tradition of dropping a new song over the summer, the Grammy Award winners have re-released this track with some extra assistance from one of the most talked-about rappers on the scene. Cardi B also features heavily in the music video, which focuses on her and Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine in an empty room that slowly begins to fill with various ladies; Levine's wife Behati Prinsloo and their daughter can be seen near the end of the video.
It's also the latest in what's become a long line of Maroon 5 collaborations with rap artists. Five of the 15 songs on Red Pill Blues feature a rapper, including the previously released "Don't Wanna Know" and "Cold." Their hit single "Payphone" from their 2012 record Overexposed featured Wiz Khalifa; the song spent 31 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, peaking in second place. The band has clearly found a groove combining their pop-rock sensibilities with rap vocals, and re-releasing "Girls Like You" adds another chapter to the transformation of their sound. It also gives Maroon 5 fans yet another fresh track to add to their playlists this summer, as the band prepares to head out on tour.
The "Girls Like You" re-issue featuring Cardi B is now available on iTunes. Music fans who want to see Maroon 5 live this summer can get tickets through AXS by using the links below:
