Maroon 5 and Megan Thee Stallion have dropped a sexy and weird video for their song “Beautiful Mistakes” only one week after they made the song. Maroon 5 decided to continue its new year comeback on March 11.
After teasing a green-screen demolition derby, the group; Adam, Jesse Carmichael, James Valentine, PJ Morton, Sam Farrar and Matt Flynn posted the video for “Beautiful Mistakes,” the group’s collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion.
From what we saw, the video is a technicolour dream, you could see Adam driving his car into the Southern California sky, where he met Megan, looking as divine as ever, and the two chases each other. Doughnuts get involved, and it ends with the two singing about “laying in bed and making beautiful mistakes.”
Speaking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe about the collaboration, Adam Levine said, “I told her that when we finally met up, because obviously everything was done [separately]. And when we actually saw her in person, and we shot the video together, I told her.
“I was like the little break where you go to the melodic thing, to be honest, it actually shows this new kind of branch of what she does, and this new versatility that she’s going to show everybody right now. And I was so, I remember when I heard it, I was like, oh, that’s big. That’s a side of her I had never really heard yet.”
“Well, it’s just, it’s one of those great songs that I think kind of continues to build. And the way she built her part was just, it couldn’t have been a more epic kind of climax for the song. I mean, it really is absolutely perfect. So, I mean, what she did was just miraculous, and it brought the song to a whole new level,” he said.
Meanwhile, Adam was recently slammed for an odd comment he made during this interview, about how there “aren’t any bands anymore.”
While on the chat the Maroon 5 rep said, “It’s funny, when the first Maroon 5 album came out there were still other bands. I feel like there aren’t any bands anymore, you know? That’s the thing that makes me kind of sad, is that there were just bands.
There are no bands anymore, and I feel like they’re a dying breed. And so I kind of, in a weird way, as far as, I mean, there still are plenty of bands, and maybe they’re not in the limelight quite as much, or in the pop limelight, but I wish there could be more of those around.”
Adam’s comments made it look as if rock, metal, punk, and all their subgenres were no longer commercially viable? And for that, the comment really didn’t make sense at all. Meanwhile, as of March 10, AJR’s “Bang” has already done eight weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, and while it has only peaked at 31 so far, it is still on the top half of the chart and many more bands that are doing extremely well.
