“Moves Like Jagger” is a song by American band Maroon 5 featuring American 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, of which he compares to those of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.
“Moves Like Jagger” debuted at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100, therefore making it the band’s first top-ten single since the number-one hit “Makes Me Wonder” (2007), and Aguilera’s first top-ten since “Keeps Gettin’ Better” (2008). The song was a number-one single in United States, Canada, Denmark, Ireland and New Zealand and was also a top-five hit in most countries that it charted. The song also 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 Akerlund was released on August 8, 2011. The video not only features Christina Aguilera, but it also features some old video footage of Mick Jagger himself and his iconic moves.
