Just last week, Maroon 5 released a video for their new song “Girls Like You,” featuring Cardi B. And if the catchy tune doesn’t get you, the star-studded cast will. Seriously, there are so many powerful females from all walks of life strutting around this music video.

“Girls Like You,” Maroon 5 feat. Cardi B
The song, originally available on Maroon 5’s 2017 album Red Pill Blues by the band solo and released May 30 as a single featuring Cardi B, enters the Hot 100 at No. 94, powered by its No. 12 start on Digital Song Sales (19,000). Its star-studded video (here is a rundown of all the women in the clip), also released May 30, further sparks the song’s 2,212 percent blast to 3.9 million U.S. streams.

The video feels like something of a mea culpa from the group for inadvertently assosciating itself with the MRA world. It features a series of cameos from famous women including Ellen DeGeneres, Tiffany Haddish, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Gal Gadot, Camila Cabello, and Phoebe Robinson. The all-star line-up dances while frontman Adam Levine sings about needing “a girl like you.” Check it out above.

 

After an initial push-in shot of Levine’s face we find Camila Cabello mouthing the words and dancing in place to the mid-tempo pop tune, only to find her replaced by comedian/actress Phoebe Robinson from 2 Dope Queens and then Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, who clasps hands with the band leader and shares a smile.

The parade rolls on with too-cool comedian Sarah Silverman in a leather jacket, followed by Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, and then a power trio featuring Youtube comedian Lily Singh, tech entrepreneur Amani Al-Khatahtbeh and Transparent actress Trace Lysette. As the camera continues to twirl Girls Trip breakout star Tiffany Haddish comes into frame, along with activist Angy Rivera and Well, That Escalated Quickly author Franchesca Ramsey.

Verse 1]
Spent 24 hours, I need more hours with you
You spent the weekend getting even, ooh
We spent the late nights making things right between us

[Pre-Chorus]
But now it’s all good, babe
Roll that back wood, babe
And play me close

[Chorus]
‘Cause girls like you run ’round with guys like me
‘Til sun down when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah

[Post-Chorus]
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah

[Verse 2]
I spent last night on the last flight to you
Took a whole day up tryna get way up, ooh
We spent the daylight tryna make things right between us

[Pre-Chorus]
But now it’s all good, babe
Roll that back wood, babe
And play me close

[Bridge]
Maybe it’s 6:45
Maybe I’m barely alive
Maybe you’ve taken my shit for the last time, yeah
Maybe I know that I’m drunk
Maybe I know you’re the one
Maybe you’re thinking it’s better if you drive

[Chorus]
‘Cause girls like you run ’round with guys like me
‘Til sun down when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah
‘Cause girls like you run ’round with guys like me
‘Til sun down when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah
Girls like you love fun, and yeah, me too
What I want when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah yeah

[Post-Chorus]
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
