Moves Like Jagger
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“Moves Like Jagger” is a song by American band Maroon 5 featuring American pop singer Christina Aguilera. It was released for digital download on June 21, 2011 in conjunction with a live performance of the song on The Voice the same day. “Moves Like Jagger” was written by Adam Levine, Benjamin Levin, Ammar Malik and Shellback, and was produced by Shellback and Benny Blanco.[2] It was later included on a re-release of the band’s third studio album, Hands All Over (2011).

The song’s lyrics refer to a male protagonist’s ability to impress a female with his dance moves, which he compares to those of The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. The song received a positive critical appreciation, many of them complimented the vocal chemistry between Levine and Aguilera and labeled it “an irresistible summer hit”.

“Moves Like Jagger” debuted at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100, therefore making it the band’s first top 10 single since the number-one hit “Makes Me Wonder” (2007), and Aguilera’s first top-ten since “Keeps Gettin’ Better” (2008). The song topped the charts in United States, Canada, Denmark, Ireland, Netherlands, Finland, Norway and New Zealand and was also a top-five hit in most countries that it charted. The song also marks the first time two former Best New Artist Grammy Award winners have collaborated on a Hot 100 hit.

A music video directed by Jonas Akerlund was released on August 8, 2011. The video features Christina Aguilera, as well as old video footage of Mick Jagger and his iconic moves.

Just shoot for the stars
If it feels right
Then aim for my heart
If you feel like
And take me away, make it okay
I swear I’ll behave

You wanted control
So we waited
I put on a show
Now I make it
You say I’m a kid
My ego is big
I don’t give a sh*t
And it goes like this

[Chorus]
Take me by the tongue
And I’ll know you
Kiss me till you’re drunk
And I’ll show you

You want the moves like jagger
I’ve got the moves like jagger
I’ve got the mooooooves… like jagger

I don’t need try to control you
Look into my eyes and I’ll own you

With them the moves like jagger
I’ve got the moves like jagger
I’ve got the mooooooves… like jagger

Maybe it’s hard
When you feel like you’re broken and scarred
Nothing feels right
But when you’re with me
I make you believe
That I’ve got the key

So get in the car
We can ride it
Wherever you want
Get inside it
And you want to steer
But I’m shifting gears
I’ll take it from here
And it goes like this

[Chorus]
Take me by the tongue
And I’ll know you
Kiss me till you’re drunk
And I’ll show you

You want the moves like jagger
I’ve got the moves like jagger
I’ve got the mooooooves… like jagger

I don’t need try to control you
Look into my eyes and I’ll own you

With them the moves like jagger
I’ve got the moves like jagger
I’ve got the mooooooves… like jagger

[Bridge]
You wanna know how to make me smile
Take control, own me just for the night
And if I share my secret
You’re gonna have to keep it
Nobody else can see this

So watch and learn
I won’t show you twice
Head to toe, ooh baby, roll me right
And if I share my secret
You’re gonna have to keep it
Nobody else can see this

And it goes like this

[Chorus]
Take me by the tongue
And I’ll know you
Kiss me till you’re drunk
And I’ll show you

You want the moves like jagger
I’ve got the moves like jagger
I’ve got the mooooooves… like jagger

I don’t need try to control you
Look into my eyes and I’ll own you

With them the moves like jagger
I’ve got the moves like jagger
I’ve got the mooooooves… like jagger
