Camila Cabello, Gal Gadot, Jennifer Lopez, and Ellen DeGeneres are only a few of the women featured in Maroon 5's newest music video for their single "Girls Like You," which is basically one big dance party for empowering female celebrities. Watch it above on YouTube.
The light-hearted pop-rock anthem has an appropriately entertaining music video, with Adam Levine performing center stage in a grey-blue room while the rest of the band plays to the side. As he sings, the camera repeatedly circles around him and different women appear, dancing, lip-synching, and generally looking like they're having a good time. It's a fun, light-hearted video for a song with an uncomplicated message, featuring lyrics like "Girls like you love fun / Yeah, me too." Ellen shuffles awkwardly when she doesn't know how to dance, Millie Bobby Brown blows kisses at the camera, and Alexandra Raisman noticeably wears a shirt reading: "Always speak your truth."
Additional appearances include Ilhan Omar, Elizabeth Banks, Rita Ora, Sarah Silverman, Chloe Kim, and Cardi B, who wears a bright yellow jacket as she raps her brief yet effective verse toward the middle of the song. The video's end is surprisingly sweet, as Levine embraces his wife and daughter, and all the women featured in the video appear standing together, united and strong.
"Girls Like You" is the ninth track off Maroon 5's latest album, Red Pill Blues, which the band is still currently touring on. Pick it up on Amazon, if you haven't done so already.
