Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine gets his Raging Bull on in the new "One More Night" video.
Levine and lead guitarist James Valentine were kind enough to premiere the action-packed new music video during "MTV First: Maroon 5" on Monday (June 25), and during the Q&A that immediately followed that debut, Levine revealed that he happily took a beating to prepare for the boxing aspect of the shoot.
"I had a little bit of training. I'll never forget. During the little bit of training, I got the guy who was training me. He hit me, and it hurt," Levine admitted. "I've never really been in a full-blown fight before, but the guy hit me pretty hard. I'm a wimp, so it was worse [for me] than someone who's tough, but he hit me, and I was like, 'Oww, man!' "
Levine said the boxing in the clip, which was born from the video treatment Levine wrote himself and delivered to director Peter Berg, is a metaphor for how our romantic entanglements can sometimes feel like a fight.
" 'One More Night' was one of the songs that was more far along when we heard it," Levine recalled of first hearing the Max Martin and Shellback-produced track. "Shellback, who did 'Moves Like Jagger' with us, it was one of those things that the instant we heard it as a group, we thought, 'Wow.'
"I do love the lyrics," Levine continued. "The metaphor that we spoke of earlier, a relationship between two people, sometimes when it's not going so well, it feels like a battle. Like a boxing match."
