[FIRST LISTEN] Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera "Moves Like Jagger"


Leave it to producer Benny Blanco to whip up another crispy pop jam that will likely fly up the charts in no time. Check out his funky new pop confection "Moves Like Jagger" that he concocted for Maroon 5 and which features the divalicious vocals of none other than Adam Levine's new pal Christina Aguilera. 

Set to a carefree whistle with a punchy rhythm guitar and a thumping bass, it is a tight, feel-good summer tune with flirty lyrics like, "Maybe it is hard, nothing feels right, but when you are mine, I will make you believe. I've got the key, get in the car and drive wherever you want. Drive where you want to steer, but im shifting gears, I'll take it from here." (Also, check out this fun lyric video of the song.)

Time to get in your car, roll down the windows, crank up the speakers and move like Jagger, zig-zagging through traffic all summer long with this potent new pop collaboration. After Maroon 5's success with Rihanna in the summer of 2007 with "If I Never See You Face Again," this new ditty may once again have them flourish this season and proof mighty for the group. It's a sure-fire winner. (Download)
