This dance-floor filler is the lead single by the American Pop-Rock band Maroon 5, from their fourth studio album, titled Overexposed. The song finds Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine in a downbeat mood as he reminisces about a failed relationship. The song, which was produced by “Moves Like Jagger” co-authors Shellback and Benny Blanco, was debuted on The Voice on April 16, 2012 and released for download immediately afterwards.
The song features rapper Wiz Khalifa, whose verse is more direct than Levine’s despondent lyrics. “Had a really good game but you missed your last shot,” he raps. “So you talk about who you see at the top, or what you could’ve saw. But sad to say it’s over for it, phantom roll out valet open doors.” “On our last record, we had a feature with Lady Antebellum, and on this one we did one with Wiz,” said Levine to Rolling Stone. “There aren’t many bands that can do that!” Show SheetesPiano Music Sheet.
