Maroon 5 recruit J. Cole for "Animals" remix

Upon the release of Maroon 5's new music video of their new single "Animals", the band released a remix of the single featured North Carolina rapper J. Cole.


The single was leaked on to the web earlier today (Mon, Sept. 29) on the blogs Complex and Hip Hop 'N More and was received well by music critics.

Last month, Maroon 5 released a remix version of their hit single "Maps", which featured a hip hop cameo from rapper Big Sean, who lent his vocals on the track. The Big Sean remix can be found on the international deluxe edition of Maroon 5's new album, V.

Maroon 5 premiered their new video for "Animals", the second single cut from the band's latest album V, earlier today on video outlets YouTube and Vevo. And it is nothing short of eerie and amazing.


Frontman Adam Levine played a character fans have never seen the Sexiest Man Alive play before, which is a level 10 stalker. Levine spends his days wandering around his meat locker chock full of decapitated cows and mutilated animals, taking blood baths, and snapping photographs of a mysterious woman, in which is played by wife Behati Prinsloo, around a small suburban town. Levine, who presumably works at a meet market, catches Prinsloo's eyes behind the register and eventually garners a strong interest in her. Following her to night clubs and bars, he approaches her in hopes to fulfill his fantasies of sex with her. After many trail and errors, Levine let's us inside his mind which shows a nude Levine and Prinsloo making love and getting Carrie'd (see what I mean here) by a bucketful of blood whilst making out.

Maroon 5's new music video for "Animals" is set to premiere on E! News tonight before the airing of The Voice at 8/7pm CPT on NBC!

5 Reasons Why Maroon 5 Should Play Super Bowl Halftime

Maroon 5 performing live.
The Adam Levine-led group would dominate the SuperBowl Half Time Show in 2015

After last year's explosive and fiery performance by one of today's most talented pop musicians Bruno Mars and funk rock group Red Hot Chili Pepper, it's no doubt that Los Angeles-based group Maroon 5 can bring their funk-meets-dance sound to the XLIX SuperBowl Halftime Show at next year's football showdown on February 1, 2015 in Glendale, Arizona.


Here are the 5 reasons...

1. Dance anthems

If it's one thing we know about Maroon 5, it is that they are great at making an anthemic dance-floor, 4 on the floor, electro-pop hit sound like a hard-hitting true rock 'n roll anthem. The band's live spin on last year's top 10 single "Love Somebody", taken from one of the band's poppiest records to date, could easily be mistaken for an 80's arena rock tune when performed live (the right way). For example, take a look at their performance of "Love Somebody" live on their Overexposed Tour visit in Montreal.



2. Rock anthems

As poppy as they seem to be nowadays, the Grammy-Award winning band has been credited to be a true rock band by many, as specially back in the day. Their Songs About Jane hits "This Love" and "Harder to Breathe" could easily make the Super Bowl Halftime's highlights with their incredibly catchy hooks, heavy guitars, and funkadelic vibes. And while other proclaimed Maroon 5 hits like "Hands All Over" and "One More Night" have rock elements in them, it would go well following up the Chili Peppers' performance from last year's halftime show.



3. They've got the "Moves Like Jagger"

OK. "Moves Like Jagger" may be every man over the age of 30's biggest nightmare of a song, however it seems like it is easily today's generation's "Don't Stop Believin'" or "We Are the Champions." It is also in ode of one of the biggest rock 'n roll vocalists in rock history, Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones (2006's SuperBowl Halftime performs). "Jagger" stormed the charts in 2011 leaping to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for 4 weeks and one of the best-selling singles in music. It would be such an amazing closer to what would be their insane medley of performances and even would be a great opportunity for a special surprise guest from the track's featured artist, Christina Aguilera, which brings us to our next reason.

2. Great opportunity for surprises...

Can you imagine Maroon 5 performing "Moves Like Jagger" and out comes pop diva and legendary singer/actress/performer Christina Aguilera to sing her part? What a mind-blowing performance that'd be. And since Bruno Mars was accompanied by the Red Hot Chili Peppers at last year's festivities, maybe Prince and The Revolution can join M5 on the SuperBowl Halftime stage.



1. Altogether great live band!

They're amazing live! Easy as that. They've been touring for over 15 years, sold million of albums worldwide and have sold out dozens and dozens of arenas and amphitheaters throughout the entire planet. It'd almost be stupid not to have Maroon 5 rock the SuperBowl Halftime show.

What do you think? Should Maroon 5 perform at the XLIX Super Bowl HalfTime concert next February?

Maroon 5 front man and The Voice coach Adam Levine made a surprise stop at NBC's The Today Show this morning to speak about the newest season of the hit television show The Voice and how the chemistry has brewed between the three other dynamic coaches Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and Pharrell Williams.


Adam Levine seems to find praise in new-coming coach Gwen Stefani as a fan and a friend and for the fact that she's the only other coach, other than Levine, to be in a band, in which is No Doubt. Levine also takes his rivalry with fellow veteran coach Blake Shelton to a new level slamming him (jokingly) saying "he's a terrible person to his core."

Maroon 5 on Greatest Hits Album, Hiatus & Collaborations

Adam, Jesse, and James from Maroon 5.
Adam and James talked about the new Maroon 5 record, working with Nate & Gwen, and their Greatest Hits CD

A greatest hits album is in the works in the world of Maroon 5.


Also, Adam really needs a break from Maroon 5. Really bad.

In an exclusive interview with Rob Copsey of the Official Charts Company (OCC), Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and guitarist James Valentine sat down and had a somewhat intimate conversation about Maroon 5's future direction as a whole, working with Nate Ruess and Gwen Stefani on their new album, V, and working on a greatest hits CD set for a 2015/2016 release. But first off, is Maroon 5 headed for a hiatus?

It's painful to watch your favorite band say they will possibly be stepping away from the studio and road for a some years to pursue their own lives as people rather than rock stars, but it is something that has been common in the music industry with bands. Thus far this year, we've seen pop act Metro Station, punk band Basement, hip-hop duo OutKast, and even Pink Floyd return to the spotlight from very long hiatuses. Are Maroon 5 headed for a hiatus themselves?

In the interview, when asked "How many more Maroon 5 albums do you have left?", Adam responded stating: “Five albums in, I think it’s important to take stock for a while. To have the success we’ve had, we’re the luckiest motherfuckers on the planet." Adam continued by saying “[...] we’re flirting with the idea of taking some of time off. We’ve always been thinking about the next album and tour for ten years. We’re not going anywhere and we’re not going to disband, but after this album we’ll have a conversation and think about what the next move is.”

Levine also confirmed that Maroon 5 are starting to work on a long-overdue greatest hits album: "It's in the works actually." James Valentine hinted back in 2012 that Maroon 5 is due for a greatest hits CD sometime following "our fourth or fifth album for sure."

But, fans are beaming, and will still be beaming, over the new Maroon 5 record, V, which dropped earlier this month (Tues, Sept. 2) and dominated the Billboard 200 chart peaking atop the tally, scoring themselves their second No. 1 album since 2007's It Won't Be Soon Before Long. And in support of the album, fans can look forward to the highly anticipated 2015 Maroon 5 World Tour, with MAGIC! and Rozzi Crane, beginning in February of next year. Also, things we can look forward to are the "Animals" music video, which is said to be the most talked about music video of the year, The Voice, in which premieres this Monday, September 22, and Maroon 5's return to Saturday Night Live on October 4 next month.
