Maroon 5 and Megan Thee Stallion have shared their collaborative track “Beautiful Mistakes.”
The track kicks off with frontman Adam Levine’s polished vocals as he croons about the lingering memories of his former flame: “It’s beautiful, it’s bittersweet / You’re like a broken home to me / I take a shot of memories / And black out like an empty street / I fill my days with the way you walk / And fill my nights with broken dreams.”
Megan balances out the melancholy with an assertive verse: “You did me wrong ’cause I let you / Usually, I like my situations beneficial / Doin’ something different, got me lookin’ stupid / The only way I’m comin’ back to you is if you dream it, lucid.”
Levine only had praises for Megan as he spoke to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe regarding the collaboration, while also revealing that the track will receive a visual treatment. “She’s so talented,” he gushed. “She is a superstar, but really in the truest sense, man, she’s all class, and just we had the best time shooting the video.”
February was a busy month for the Houston Hottie: she shared the fiery “Southside Forever Freestyle” on her 26th birthday and released her Coming 2 America soundtrack contribution, “I’m a King,” with Bobby Sessions. She also dropped the video for the DaBaby-assisted “Cry Baby” from her debut album Good News.
Maroon 5, on the other hand, are currently gearing up for the release of their seventh studio album. It’s the follow-up to their 2017 record Red Pill Blues. Apart from “Beautiful Mistakes,” it’s expected to include the previously released “Nobody’s Love” and “Memories.”
