“Wait” because it’s gona take you some time to understand Maroon 5’s new video.
Maroon 5 released the visual for “Wait” directed by the man of the hour, Dave Meyers. Dave was behind Camila Cabello’s “Havana,” Kendrick Lamar’s award-winning “Humble” and the rapper’s recent collab with SZA “All the Stars.” “Wait” pushes the boundaries we thought Maroon 5 reached on “What Lovers Do” to the next level.
Adam Levine and Baywatch star Alexandra Daddario make for the perfect crazy couple entertaining us with a series of fights or break ups set in various places as the band’s frontman pleads his partner to wait. Alexandra literally melts between Adam’s hands after he stings her with a reviving scorpion at her funeral, which happens to follow his. The video bounces from surrealist scene to another until finally unraveling, literally again, with Alexandra taking off.
“Wait” is the second single from the band’s sixth studio album Red Pill Blues.
