Maroon 5 have released a new song with Megan Thee Stallion, "Beautiful Mistakes."
"Beautiful Mistakes" is a subtle bit of pop-rock with heavy drums anchoring a swirl of atmospheric synths and soft guitar. The lyrics find frontman Adam Levine wracked by memories of lost love - "I wouldn't take 'em back/I'm in love with the past/And now we lie awake/Making beautiful mistakes" - while Megan seems determined to move on: "I know it's hard to let go, I'm the best," she raps, "Best you ever had and best you gonna get/If we break up I don't wanna be friends, you're toxic."
"Beautiful Mistakes" follows Maroon 5's 2020 single, "Nobody's Love," as well as their 2019 offering, "Memories." The band's last full-length album, Red Pill Blues, was released in 2017.
