American pop/rock Maroon 5 band have recently world premiered the music video for "Payphone", the Wiz Khalifa-assisted track which serves as the lead single from their upcoming album entitled "Overexposed", set for release on June 26th via A&M/Octone! Co-produced by Shellback and Benny Blanco, the sensible pop single "Payphone" debuted atop the iTunes chart in the US last month after the 'The Voice' live performance (and hasn't left the Top 10 ever since), it's one of the most-requested songs on radio, and on the Billboard Hot 100 the song has managed to peak at #3...so it's fair to say 'Payphone' is a SMASH.
As for the newly-unveiled Samuel Bayner-directed visual, well...first of all let's say it's always nice to watch big-budgeted videos, but all in all, I just don't get the 'Payphone' MV plot. It makes no sense IMO. It seems to me like they just wanted a lot of action and chase scenes, so they tried to make it into a story, but then it didn't really work..so. It was entertaining to watch though. And still love the song!
