Listen: Maroon 5, Kendrick Lamar's single 'Dont Wanna Know' debuts on iTunes


You'd probably want to know that Maroon 5 and Kendrick Lamar are teaming up for the first time on a new track 'Don't Wanna Know' on iTunes.

Seems like a very unlikely pairing: a pop rock band who sings love songs and a hard hitting rap star who writes rhymes about the streets?

This track, produced by Benny Blanco, is the first single off Maroon 5's album which is a follow up to the 2014's V.

It also marks the first official collaboration between Maroon 5 and Kendrick Lamar.

Adam Levine had collaborated with Lamar on a song with Lonely Island called 'YOLO' which debuted on Saturday Night Live.

The song first premiered at a show in San Antonio few weeks ago. The video will be debuting on 14 October on The Today Show and will be directed by David Dobkin, who has also directed the band's 'Sugar' video.

The first television performance of the song will be on the 3 November episode of Ellen.

Maroon 5 even tweeted about the song:

[Intro]
Oh hey
Oh hey
Oh hey

[Chorus: Adam Levine]
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
I'm loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
I'm loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don't wanna know

[Verse 1: Adam Levine]
Wasted (wasted)
And the more I drink the more I think about you
Oh no, no, I can't take it
Baby every place I go reminds me of you

[Pre-Chorus: Adam Levine]
Do you think of me? Of what we used to be?
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?

[Chorus: Adam Levine]
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
I'm loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
I'm loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don't wanna know

[Verse 2: Adam Levine]
And I every time I go out, yeah
I hear it from this one, I hear it from that one
Glad you got someone new
Yeah, I see but I don't believe it
Even in my head you're still in my bed
Maybe I'm just a fool

[Pre-Chorus: Adam Levine]
Do you think of me? Of what we used to be?
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?

[Chorus: Adam Levine]
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
I'm loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
I'm loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don't wanna know

[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]
(Oh hey)
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 made you better on your birthday, oh
Do he do you like this, do he woo you like this?
Do he let it down for you, touch your poona like this?
Matter fact, never mind, we'll let the past be
Maybe his right now, but your body's still me, woah

[Chorus: Adam Levine]
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
I'm loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
I'm loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don't wanna know
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
I'm loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don't wanna know

[Outro: sample]
Oh hey
Oh hey
Oh hey
Oh, oh
