It looks like Maroon 5 is continuing their hip-hop flirtation, with the best result yet. While last year gave us tracks with cameos from Kendrick Lamar and Future, their collaboration with SZA – “What Lovers Do” –  has been their most harmonious cross-genre marriage yet.

Directed by video visionary Joseph Kahn – who has the hottest film on the festival circuit right now with the battle rap drama Bodied – Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice judge Adam Levine chases SZA across numerous landscapes, taking only romantic pursuit clichés and turning them on their ear.

While we still have no release date or album title for the next Maroon 5 project, a sentence I’ve been typing for over a year now, logic dictates such an elaborate video clip has to show some sort of major monetary investment in an upcoming release, right?
