A tropical pop cut with a playful verse from the lyrical powerhouse.
Does it every time
Some would say Maroon 5 only cares to conform to modern sound to make more money. I would agree, music is an industry, hence a business. However, what really sets them apart, and what makes Maroon 5 retain fans since they were Kara's Flowers is their ability to bring down the level of every song to match emotional struggles of everybody everywhere. If you can't relate to this song, or even if you say this is garbage and "not Maroon 5" you shouldn't be listening to the beat, instruments, and chord progressions. You should actually be listening to the lyrics, Adam's tone, and the heartbeat of the song. Music is what connects all human beings all over the world, and Maroon 5 has known that for a long time.
Not bad but .....
At this point they're honestly just trying to appeal to mainstream pop taste. This sounds like every other song in the top 40. There's nothing really special or unique about this song, really a far cry from the band they were a decade ago.... :(
They sang this song as a preview at their 2016-2017 concert and I feel in love with it! One of their best!
