Maroon 5 presents posthumous verses from two lost legends

Maroon 5 had a surprising number of hip-hop artists on the deluxe version of their album, JORDI — including two artists who suffered untimely passings.

Joined by Megan Thee Stallion, blackbear, H.E.R. and more, the “Payphone” band is no stranger to working with rappers and singers outside their core genre. This project also features posthumous contributions from Juice WRLD and Nipsey Hussle.

Juice joins Adam Levine for a quick four-bar verse about his inner demons and a girl he is infatuated with on “Can’t Leave You Alone”. This release falls on the same night Migos puts out their own Juice WRLD feature in “Antisocial”.

Nipsey Hussle hops on the remix to previously released single, “Memories” — along with fellow California native YG. YG speaks on his experiences growing up prior to his success and moving on to bigger and better things. Nipsey relates to those who haven’t had the opportunity to experience the success he found during his time with us, letting the listener know that it will all be okay.

All around, the hip-hop contributions on this album did not disappoint, as Maroon 5 continues to prove their longevity by collaborating with some of hip-hop’s biggest stars.
