Just three weeks after the 37-year-old singer welcomed his first child, daughter Dusty Rose, with wife Behati Prinsloo, the new dad released a hot new single with his band, Maroon 5, on Tuesday.
The Benny Blanco-produced track, titled “Don’t Wanna Know”, features rapper Kendrick Lamar, and is a catchy, electronic pop song about an ex who is trying not to get jealous as a former flame constantly flaunts their envious life via social media.
“Do you think of me? Of what we used to be?” Levine croons over the tropical beats. “Is it better now that I’m not around? My friends are actin’ strange, they don’t bring up your name. Are you happy now? Are you happy now?”.
Kendrick chimes in towards the end of the song, rapping, “No more ‘please stop,’ no more hashtag boo’d up screenshots. No more tryin’ make me jealous on your birthday. You know just how I make you better on your birthday”.
This marks Maroon 5’s first collaboration with Lamar, and the pop rock band is set to perform the song live for the first time on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Nov. 3. As for the accompanying music video? Fans can expect to see that on Friday when it premieres on the TODAY show. It’s directed by David Dobkin, the same filmmaker who worked with Levine and crew on their most-viewed video to date, “Sugar”.
Although it’s been awhile since we heard a new jam from Maroon 5 — which is also made up of Jesse Carmichael, Matt Flynn, Mickey Madden, PJ Morton and James Valentine — the guys have been busy on their North American headlining tour, which continues through 2017. Last month, they had to cancel a few of their scheduled stops as Levine prepared for the arrival of baby Dusty.

As Levine was debuting new music, Prinsloo was congratulating her fellow model and BFF, Candice Swanepoel, who gave birth to her first child, a baby boy, with fiancé Hermann Nicoli last Wednesday.
“Cheers bru we did it”, Prinsloo captioned a black-and-white pic of the two drinking wine in bathrobes. “Can’t believe we got so lucky to be on this amazing journey together forever. Love you and can’t wait to meet Anacã”.
