♪ Yeah, yeah, yeah ♪ ♪ I need a girl like you ♪ – This must’ve been
a really fun shoot. – How much fun would it
have been to film this? Like, all those stars. – ♪ …girls like you ♪ – Oh, is this his wife? (gasps) Oh, that’s so cute! – And his little daughter.
I bet it’s for his little daughter. – Look at all these women
of all colors, all shapes, different stories, YESS! – That was a really beautiful song.
You don’t have to be a certain look to be loved by somebody
like Adam Levine. – A whole cast of every empowering,
amazing woman from the arts, from social, political, sports,
from every corner of the world. – I saw Maroon 5 the very first night
of their ever headlining tour. And they’ve gone way more poppy and dance-y and mainstream, but that is so stripped down
and just that acoustic riff over and over again
is kind of mesmerizing. It’s totally different,
but maybe that was to get the message across. – (FBE) So, that was the video
for “Girls Like You,” the latest song from Maroon 5
featuring Cardi B. – Mm-hmm.
I think Cardi B always adds a fun little flair to a song. – (FBE) We’re gonna talk
about the video more in a second. But first, what did you think
of having two artists like Maroon 5 and Cardi b
together like this? – I loved it.
I’ve been waiting for Maroon 5 to come back with some heat. So if they’re gonna come back
with some heat, they better do it with the hottest person right now,
which is Cardi. – It’s crazy how much Cardi B
can be with anybody. It’s, like, my mom knows
who Cardi B is, so it’s kind of like,
okay, she can basically do anything. – I really liked it, actually.
That one just really meshed well. That one just went…
like, the beat with her and also the lyrics just really
combined really well together. – Cardi B definitely meshes better
with Bruno Mars and Migos. When this video was shot,
it’s like they probably could’ve been in two completely
different recording studios. So, I couldn’t actually
see their chemistry. – (FBE) So, the video was notable
for having a number of celebrity cameos.
But in addition to just being famous, many people pointed out
that there’s a lot of other inspirational women
included in the video. – Yeah, definitely.
– (FBE) Among those featured included many activists,
prominent LGBT figures, artists, and athletes
who broke new ground in their industry, and even the first
Somali-American Muslim legislator to be elected to office in the US.
– Oh my gosh! – Damn, I just got
chills a little bit. – (FBE) So, what did you think
about their effort to include such a diverse group of women
in this video? – I loved it.
Different colors, different backgrounds,
different religions. A lot of the metoo was included
in there as well. – It was a very diverse group
of people. It kind of shows that we all
are strong in our own different ways. – They could’ve played it safe
and just made it sort of a generic, like, “Oh,
it’s summer time!” I say kudos to Maroon 5
for switching it up with some political commentary. – Maroon 5’s so big
and Cardi B’s so big that people would be drawn
to this video. They’re gonna be like,
“I wanna see who I missed,” and go like, “Okay, who was that?
Who was that? Who was that?” and look ’em up.
It makes you dive in. – There’s so much injustice
and just hate and the news and just the media in general.
So, it’s really awesome to see such a poppy group shine light
and use their platform to highlight these really
inspirational women. – (FBE) Among these women
were two who are notable for their success on YouTube:
Franchesca Ramsey and Lilly Singh. What do you think about how YouTube
has gone to a place where its stars can be featured
right next to traditional media celebrities
in a video like this? – I love it.
I love YouTube. Because I feel like that leaves space
for everybody to say, “You know what?
I could make a difference too.” – They are just as much
on the same level as Ellen DeGeneres,
as Gal Gadot, as all these people that are so big,
these huge celebrities, these huge athletes,
that they are just as much an inspiration to these kids
as these people that are on TV and big blockbuster movies. – Not only is that amazing
and those creative forces deserve that attention,
but, you know, that’s also where all the youth is. Maroon 5’s production person/
marking person/press person, that was a smart move. – (FBE) So finally, this video’s
honoring inspirational women, so we wanted to give you a chance
to do the same thing. If you could honor one
inspirational woman out there, who would you choose?
– Oh my god, no. I’m gonna cry.
I’m gonna say my mom. She’s just a hard worker.
She just showed me that there’s no easy way
out of anything. She’s always been like
(speaks Spanish), which means
“Turn on those batteries” and get to work,
’cause that’s the only way you’re gonna hustle in this life. – My mom’s so awesome.
For her to just be this compassionate and loving figure
and such a role model in my life, she deserves the world. – Emma Watson, because she’s been
an activist in women’s rights and just so many different things
ever since Harry Potter. – My wife. I’m in awe
all the time of every task that she takes on.
It’s unbelievable. – Maybe Elizabeth Warren?
(chuckles) Maybe Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I’m just letting you know
that there are a lot of iconic women that would fit
right into that video. – My mom is the nicest person
I’ve ever met in my life. She taught me
“Kill ’em with kindness” in the sense that instead
of getting revenge, instead of getting mad,
just find a way to love each other, and it’ll work out. – I’ve always been obsessed
with Audrey Hepburn, not just because she was
this EGOT winner, but I just felt like she spent
a lot of her later years giving back. – Jennifer Lopez. She’s done so much
for our community to make us present in American culture
and to make it clear that we’re here, that this is us,
that we’re part of our country. – My mom is a straight G.
She went through so much. We’ve been homeless.
We’ve been broke. We’ve lived on our own.
My mom is such an inspiration, and she can just
go through anything. (choked up) This is the first time
I’ve ever cried on this show, but it’s because my mom
has done so much. This song should be
dedicated to her. I don’t care what anybody says.
Forget Camila Cabello, forget Cardi B.
This song is for my mom. – Thanks so much for watching
