Maroon 5 started off their career as a Pop/Rock/Funk band back in the very early 2000s and brought us the masterpiece debut album ‘Songs About Jane’. 15 year later the band is still going strong with the newest album called ‘Red Pill Blues’. The resemblance between these two albums is relatively zero. The Rock/Funk part of the band is non-existent and all you have is glorified POP!
Don’t get me wrong, there is some pop music I like. However, there is something about pop music that irritates me and that is most songs on pop radio seem to think the actually have to be “featuring” a hip-hop artist or at least another artist. Singers and bands today don’t seem to be able to do a song that is strictly their own.
Maroon 5 now believes in that theory whole-heartedly. As a result, they have six songs, that is right 6!!!, on their new album that feature another artist. They are as follows:
- “What Lovers Do (Feat. SZA)
- “Help Me Out (duet with Julia Michaels)”
- “Who I Am (Feat. Lunchmoney Lewis)”
- “Whiskey (Feat. A$AP Rocky)”
- ‘Don’t Wanna Know (Feat. Kendrick Lamar – yeah for like 10 seconds)”
- “Cold (Feat. Future)”
