8 Major Differences Between Maroon 5's Original 'Girls Like You' Video & New Version
Maroon 5's video for "Girls Like You" received a slight makeover on Tuesday with the release of "Girls Like You (Volume 2)." The Red Pill Blues single, featuring Bronx rapper Cardi B, is spending its fourth week atop the Billboard Hot 100, and the song's star-studded video has had a lot to do with its success.
The original video includes prominent women -- from singers and actresses like Jennifer Lopez, Ellen DeGeneres, Millie Bobby Brown and Mary J. Blige to activists like Angy Rivera, Jackie Fielder and even the first Somali-American woman elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives Ilhan Omar -- and has been praised as a celebration of women by highlighting important female figures across many fields. Maroon 5's new version of the video features the same cast of women but includes additional footage and some major differences.
Check out the two versions of "Girls Like You" below, as well as the the eight major differences between the two clips, below.
