Music Video: Maroon 5 – “Memories”
If you’re out there feeling like Maroon 5 always has new music to put out, you’re not alone. Their albums are actually spaced out by a few years, but Adam Levine is always on TV (as a judge on The Voice), so it feels like they’re never gone. Somehow, the group has escaped overexposure (despite that being the title of one of their albums).
“Memories” is the lead single from the group’s as-yet-untitled seventh studio album. The song is a tribute to Jordan Feldstein, the group’s former manager (and Adam Levine’s childhood friend) who passed away from a pulmonary embolism in December 2017.
The track is classic Maroon 5 — super-melodic, catchy lyrics, and superb genre-blending — and Adam Levine’s vocal performance gives subdued and emotive. The video shows Adam staring into the camera from start to finish, shirtless and looking pensive. Basically, if the videos for Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” and D’Angelo’s “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” had a baby, it would be this video. Click play.
