Joining the ever-growing list of singers, Maroon 5 are the latest to collaborate with Cardi B for their revamped single Girls Like You. The song was released earlier today following the announcement on the band’s twitter.
Along with the revamped single came a music video featuring a lot of influential women in the business.
The star-studded cast include daytime TV host Ellen DeGeneres and actors Jennifer Lopez, Gal Gadot, Tiffany Haddish, and Millie Bobby Brown. Athletes Chloe Kim and Aly Raisman featured as did singer-songwriters Mary J. Blige and Camila Cabello. Youtuber Lilly Singh also made an appearance.
And these are just to name a few.
Comedian Sarah Silverman popped up in the video and claimed bragging rights on her twitter:
At the end of the video, band front-man Adam Levine stands with his wife Behati Prinsloo and their daughter before the three fade out into the featured women standing in a circle.
Girls Like You was released on the band’s sixth and latest album, Red Pill Blues – an album name the band copped a lot of heat for because a Men’s Right Activist Group on reddit also share the title and apparently are a thing.
The band actually meant for the album title to reference the scene in The Matrix involving the red or blue pill where Neo is faced with two choices. If he takes the red pill he wakes up from the stimulation into reality and if he chooses the blue pill he remains in the illusion.
In an interview with Huffington Post, guitarist James Valentine hoped the album would help reclaim the popular culture reference “for the good side”.
