Watch Maroon 5 and Cardi B’s New Music Video Starring a Bunch of Powerful, Inspiring Women
Cardi B continues to dominate 2018 with a new music video alongside Adam Levine, the other members of Maroon 5, and basically all your favorite women from all walks of life, be it TV, sports, comedy, Themyscira, or the Upside Down. “Girls Like You,” the latest Maroon 5 release that’s been remixed with a Cardi verse, celebrates these women one by one as they lip sync and dance to the camera. Camila Cabello becomes Phoebe Robinson, who eventually becomes Aly Raisman in a shirt that says “Always Speak Your Truth.” Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, and YouTube comedian Lily Singh are up next, followed by tech superstar Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, Transparent’s Trace Lysette, and everyone’s fave Tiffany Haddish.
Cardi celebrated the release of the video, which she called “inspiring,” with a clip of her verse on Instagram.
The feeling was pretty much mutual across the board.
The rest of the cast is as follows: Immigrant activist Angie Rivera; author Franchesca Ramsey (whose book, Well, That Escalated Quickly came out in May); Millie Bobby Brown; Ellen DeGeneres; Jennifer Lopez; Chloe Kim; Mary J. Blige; Danica Patrick; soccer star Alex Morgan; Elizabeth Banks; Ashley Graham; Lady Bird actress Beanie Feldstein; activist Jackie Fielder, founder of the San Francisco Defund DAPL Coalitionand member of Mazaska Talks; Minnesota House member Ilhan Omar; Rita Ora; and Behati Prinsloo and her and Adam’s second child, a baby girl born in February.
If you don’t have a pick for song of the summer yet, this one’s a pretty good contender. Ladies, we bow down.
Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that Jackie Fielder was part of the Lakota Peoples Law Project. She left the organization in October 2017.
