Maroon 5 Goes 100% Pop on “Payphone” ft Wiz Khalifa
The wait is over people! Maroon 5‘s first single from their upcoming fourth studio album Overexposed has been released in full. The song, entitled “Payphone,” was produced by Benny Blanco and features a verse from rising rapper Wiz Khalifa.
The group, alongside Wiz, performed the song live on lastnight’s episode of The Voice, with the song available now on iTunes. Adam Levine stated that the song is the most pop song that they’ve ever done, and he’s right. The song isn’t only radio-friendly, but very catchy and sure to reach the Top 10.
I love the song and I think it’s a great first single choice for the album. I can’t wait to see what else they roll out before the June 26 release date of the album. Take a listen to the song below and tell us what you think.
