Season 14 of NBC’s “The Voice” kicks off on February 26th. The hype machine is in full effect and Adam Levine and his band, Maroon 5, have just dropped a big production sexy new video for their single “Wait”. Coming off the success of “What Lovers Do” with SZA, the second single from Red Pill Blues is a catchy pop single that is going viral thanks to a high profile Hollywood actress being featured in the music video.
Alexandra Daddario (True Detective, San Andreas, Baywatch) opens the video laying in a coffin as a shirtless Levine puts a scorpion on her toned stomach before she wakes up to a guy punching Adam in the face….and this is just the first 15 seconds of the clip. A beautifully edited video that keeps playing mind games with you and how can go wrong with the gorgeous actress and People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive from 2013. Yes, Blake, you’re not the only member of The Voice to win the cheesy title. Favorite moment in the music video? The makeup gone too far scene at the 1:05 moment or the Michael Bay styled alien attack are wild but the surprising ending to the video seals the deal! The video was directed by Dave Meyers who recently produced “Havana” by Camila Cabello.
What’s new on “The Voice” in 2018? Say goodbye to Miley Cyrus (thank you!) and add in Texas spitfire, Kelly Clarkson. If you’re hoping to find a new music superstar from a reality TV singing competition, you can’t imagine a better casting coup than getting the original American Idol. Her enthusiasm and competitive drive will be a huge boost to the series which has lost a little luster in its fourteenth season. The show has also added a Block Button which is sure to add a level of mystique to the blind audition process.
