Girls Like You

Maroon 5 – Girls Like You

 

Official video  

The official music video was directed by David Dobkin and released on May 30, 2018 on Vevo. The concept for the video has Levine alone at a mic with the band in the background, then features a rotating assortment of women dancing and lip-syncing around him.    

The video features appearances from Maroon 5's band members and the song's featured artist Cardi B, as well as cameos by (in order of first appearance): Camila Cabello, Phoebe Robinson, Aly Raisman, Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, Lilly Singh, Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, Trace Lysette, Tiffany Haddish, Angy Rivera, Franchesca Ramsey, Millie Bobby Brown, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, Chloe Kim, Alex Morgan, Mary J. Blige, Beanie Feldstein, Jackie Fielder, Danica Patrick, Ilhan Omar, Elizabeth Banks, Ashley Graham, Rita Ora and Levine's wife Behati Prinsloo and their daughter Dusty Rose.    

The video is similar to the music videos for rappers, Drake's "Nice for What" and Jay-Z's "Family Feud". As of September 2018, the video has over 800 million views.    

The clothing worn by the guests of the music video features several messages that represent various social justice and identity movements. Immigrant rights activist Angy Rivera of New York State Youth Leadership Council wears her organization's T-shirt with the phrase "Undocumented Unafraid Unapologetic". Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman wore a T-shirt with the phrase "Always Speak Your Truth". Jackie Fielder, founder of indigenous-led San Francisco Defund DAPL Coalition, wore a T-shirt with the words "Divest, Water is Life".    

"Girls Like You" topped YouTube's 2018 Songs of the Summer list globally, and ranked third in the United States.
