Album: It Won't Be Soon Before Long (Re-release) (2008)
Charted: 28 51

Songfacts®:

  • This song originally featured on Maroon 5's second album It Won't Be Soon Before Long. A new version was recorded, featuring Barbadian singing star Rihanna singing some additional verses and this new recording was released as a single. Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine explained to MTV News about the collaboration: "The song was basically done, but we wanted to try something different, so we had her come in and do bits and pieces. It came together so quick. The only other collaboration I had done before was with Kanye (West), and it was the same way. It sounds cheesy, but if the magic is there, if the chemistry is there, you don't even have to think about it."
  • This also was included on the re-release of Rihanna's album, Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded. The Barbadian singing star told MTV News "This is the only collaboration on my re-release, because I always wanted to work with Maroon 5. They're one of my favorite bands. When they called me to do this record with them, I was so honored."

  • Megan from Stevenson, AlI love Maroon 5! They're sooo amazing! <3 Why Rihanna?!?! I was like WTF?! They are sooo much better artists than she is!
  • Mercedies from Soldotna, AkI love this band! Adam Levine has an awesome voice. I have all of their albums. I wish they would do an Alaskan concert. But I wasn't a fan of this song with Rhianna in it. To me they both have two totally different styles of music and they just don't work together.
  • Airk from Skagway, AkI don't like Adam Levine, he has a gay voice IMO.
