When you think about the artist that has owned this last year in music, who do you think of? The obvious answer is Megan Thee Stallion, but then on the other hand, when you think about a band who has ruled the charts for years and years, who do you think of? Maroon 5 of course! These two pop culture icons have teamed up for their newest single ‘Beautiful Mistakes,’ and it’s everything we never knew we needed.
Maroon 5 has had us captivated with their music since ‘She Will Be Loved’ was blasting through our speakers. They have a formula for how to make a hit, and it’s foolproof. Maroon 5 is one of those bands that everyone knows, and it’s because they have made some of the biggest songs of all time. ‘Beautiful Mistakes’ is exactly what we wanted out of this track. It’s the upbeat pop-infused Maroon 5 track we love, and then you get the addition of Megan Thee Stallion.
Megan Thee Stallion has this incredible verse that just takes the entire song to a whole other level. The whole idea of making ‘Beautiful Mistakes’ with a partner is just perfect. It’s a song you can blast in the bedroom but will be just as solid to scream the words by yourself, whatever you please. We have had this song on repeat since the first listen and can already recite Megan Thee Stallion’s verse down pat. We can tell this is going to be a huge hit for both artists.

The front-man of Maroon 5, Adam Levine, appeared on the Zane Lowe Show to talk all about ‘Beautiful Mistakes.’ Adam compares the track to an old Blink-182 record, but with the pop influence which we feel is right on the money. When talking about knowing the song was a hit Adam said, “I feel like that’s when you know you’ve got a good one when the whole song’s a hook.” He’s well aware that this an absolute bop, and we are living for it.
When asked what it was like working with Megan Thee Stallion Adam said, “She’s just like, she’s so talented. She is a superstar, but really in the truest sense.” He talks all about finally getting to work with Megan in person on the video shoot and about how much she brought to the table in terms of elevating the song. This is a collaboration that Maroon 5 is proud of. And Maroon 5 fans can certainly rejoice, the band is releasing their next studio album sometime soon!
