Travie explains, “We kind of knew we had something special with ‘Stereo Hearts,‘ but it’s really taken off! I’m still trying to catch up with everything. When Adam [Levine] cut his vocals I was blown away with take after take. Everything was so effortless for him. When magic like that happens you let do it’s own thing.”

He continued, “‘Songs About Jane‘ came out was around the time we got signed, and went in to make our first record. We actually used ‘Songs About Jane‘ as a reference of what we wanted in terms of sound. So we’ve definitely been huge fans. When management asked us years ago who we wanted to collaborate with we said, ‘Adam from Maroon 5.’ It’s crazy how its come full circle.”
