Maroon 5 – Don’t Wanna Know (ft. Kendrick Lamar) [Single Premiere]
Maroon 5 drop the lead single, from their upcoming sixth studio album, titled ‘Don’t Wanna Know’ featuring a verse from rapper Kendrick Lamar.
The return of American pop group Maroon 5 is here with the follow-up to their 2014 Billboard 200 #1 album ‘V’, which produced the global chart toppers ‘Maps’, ‘Animals’ and ‘Sugar’. Hoping to continue their string of hits, front man Adam Levine and the rest of the band enlist a much sought after verse from feature of the moment Kendrick Lamar on their new single ‘Don’t Wanna Know’.
“Do you think of me? Of what we used to be? / Is it better now that I’m not around?” Levine sings of an ex-lover. Although Maroon 5 are not particularly renowned for their originality, they no doubt have a knack for sniffing out a catchy hit, however ‘Don’t Wanna Know’ is fairly by the numbers, even for the group’s standards. Despite the overarching lackadaisicalness, the track pulls it back slightly with a cruising tropical production (Benny Blanco) and short-but-sweet verse from Lamar. Listen below:
