Maroon 5 has been churning out hits since 2005. Their latest single “Girls Like You” from the band’s Red Pills Blues is yet another glittering notch on the band’s belt. The music video takes precedence over the lyrical integrity of the song. Talking about girl power, the video includes and celebrates a parade of female stars from different sectors of entertainment.
The video begins with front man and vocalist Adam Levine standing in the middle of a lit room with the camera circling in. Camila Cabello is the first to make an appearance, after which a slew of stars follow – with names like comedian and actress Phoebe Robinson, Olympic gymnast Aly Riasman, comedian Sarah Silverman, the Wonderwoman Gal Gadot and the YouTube sensation-Superwoman Lily Singh.
The list does is not limited to just actresses and comedians. The next in line is tech entrepreneur and author Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, followed by Tiffany Haddish. Then appears a women’s right activist Angy Rivera and then an author Franchesca Ramsey.
If you think that’s it then you’re in for more of a surprise when Stranger Things actress Millie Brown appears, after which the queen of comedy herself – Ellen DeGeneres takes the stage. Adam takes up the next few lines of the song, then “Bodack Yellow” rapper Cardi B busts out in an all yellow ensemble to drop some well-deserved self-praising verses.
Wait. We are not done yet. Next in line to dance alongside Adam is Jennifer Lopez, Olypmic snowboarder Chloe Kim, Olympic soccer star Alex Morgan and Mary J. Blige. Lady Bird star Beanie Feldstein, Jackie Fielder, race car driver Danica Patrick and Minnesota House member Ilhan Omar, Elizabeth Banks and model Ashley Graham and Rita Ora, are the last but certainly not the least to make an appearance on the video.
The “Girls Like You” video ends on a sweet close up of Adam embracing his wife model Behati Prinsloo who is cradling their baby daughter Gio Grace.
