If American Idol can rekindle Jennifer Lopez’s spark enough for her to land a smash comeback single, who says the same magic can’t be weaved for Adam Levine’s band Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera? “Moves Like Jagger,” the joint offering from the two artists, will premiere on next Tuesday’s (June 21) episode of Xtina and Adam’s hit series The Voice. (Sorry, Ke$ha — guess you’re not the only current artist with a corner on name-checking the legendary Rolling Stones crooner!)
The two coaches are set to perform “Moves Like Jagger” on The Voice next week, and then the song will be made available on iTunes after the episode (at 11 p.m.).
And, really, the pair could use a hit. Respectively, Adam and Christina’s last Top 40 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 came in 2010, in the forms of “Misery” (which peaked at #14, a disappointing position when compared to previous Maroon 5 singles like “Makes Me Wonder” and “This Love” — especially given that it was the lead single off the band’s last album) and “Not Myself Tonight” (#23).
“Castle Walls,” a promising Alex Da Kid-produced collaboration from T.I. and Xtina, failed to chart on the Hot 100 after the Atlanta rapper was sent to prison and was therefore left unable to promote the single.
A post on Maroon 5′s official site about “Moves Like Jagger” quotes Levine:
“The guys and I recorded this track in L.A. last month and it was great getting to work with Christina on it as well. We are excited to perform it for our fans on The Voice this Tuesday and on the road this summer.”
Are you excited to hear new music from both Xtina and Maroon 5?
