Hollywood Video Song: Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 (2011)

"Hollywood Video Song - Moves Like Jagger" is a song by American pop rock band Maroon 5 and contemporary R&B/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. 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 English band The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. The song generated a positive critical reception.

"Hollywood Video Song - Moves Like Jagger" debuted at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100, 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 Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden and the United States while it was a top-five hit in most countries that it charted. It topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for four non-consecutive weeks. The song 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 Ã…kerlund was released on August 8, 2011. The video features Christina Aguilera, as well as old video footage of Mick Jagger and his iconic moves.
