Mac Miller Hopes for a “Moves Like Jagger (Remix)” Video
Mac Miller wants more. Yesterday (September 29), Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger (Remix)” featuring Christina Aguilera and the Pittsburgh MC, leaked. Though Mac is grateful to appear on a remix to the No. 1 song in the country, he wishes a video will be shot for the single.
“I hope so,” Mac told XXL about plans to shoot a visual for the remix . “I just wannna go chill with Christina Aguilera, bro. The record is dope. I would love to shoot a video. That means a lot to me that [Maroon 5] would do that. They didn’t have to. And if there’s a video, that would be dope. So, if we put this out and, Adam, you read this, let’s do a video, bro.”
Last week, XXL caught up with “Moves Like Jagger” producer Benny Blanco, who detailed how Mac landed a guest verse on the track.
“Well, here’s what happened. You know I’ve been down with Mac a while ’cause I’m down with [Mac’s label] Rostrum [Records],” he says. “And so I was actually sitting with one of my homies, Zvi [Edelman, vice president of A&R at Atlantic], he’s the dude that signed Wiz [Khalifa]. We were listening to it. I was like, ‘Yo, who could we put on this song?’ ’Cause, we were trying to get someone to do a remix. I was like, ‘I know exactly who,’ because I just put Mac on another remix.
As previously reported, the single will be available on iTunes October 4. —Carl Chery
