Maxwell Can’t Quit It

Maxwell’s video for the second single from his outstanding (and commercially successful) album BLACKsummer’snight, “Bad Habits,” premiered this morning, and oh Lord is it steamy. While the lyrics draw a parallel between an out-of-control sexual relationship and addiction, the video is a four-minute examination (and maybe justification?) for affairs that might not seem like logistical good ideas—i.e., sometimes the heat that’s generated by the two parties is just too much to resist. Even if they make ex post facto run-ins at fancy restaurants super-awkward! Clip after the jump.
