“Girls Like You” – Maroon 5 Feat. Cardi B

We can definitely say that this was the summer of Cardi B, and Maroon 5 knew they had to jump on the opportunity to work with the rising rap star. That’s why when they released their single “Girls Like You” they opted for a remix of the album version instead, featuring Cardi.

The song was a romantic ode to the woman Adam Levine loves, but it was the video that really skyrocketed the single. It was simple, with Adam singing in the middle of the room surrounded by his band, but then the camera starts circling him, and different female stars take turns dancing behind the lead singer. T got a variety of iconic women, like Aly Raisman, Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, Lilly Singh, Millie Bobby Brown, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, and even Ellen Degeneres. Then the video ends with Adam turning around to face two of the girls who matter most: his wife, Behati Prinsloo, and their daughter. Awww!
