"She Will Be Loved" is the third single on the American band Maroon 5's 2002 debut album, Songs About Jane. Released in 2004, the single peaked at #5 in the United States, and by December 2012 had sold more than 2,722,000 digital downloads. It peaked at #4 in the United Kingdom. In Australia, it reached #1, a position it held for 5 non-consecutive weeks. The single is noted for its music video starring Kelly Preston in a love triangle with lead singer Adam Levine.
The song proved as successful as the band's previous hits, "This Love" and "Harder to Breathe", hitting number 1 on the Mainstream Top 40 and Adult Top 40 charts, but it prompted many alternative radio outlets to remove Maroon 5 from their playlists, on the ground that the band's newer songs were too light for alt-rock audiences. These stations continued to play "Harder to Breathe" and "This Love", but Maroon 5's newer hits were played only on pop and adult contemporary stations.
The music video for "She Will Be Loved" tells a sad love story, featuring a lovelorn socialite (Kelly Preston) and her rich, deadbeat, abusive husband, whose relationship is juxtaposed with that of their daughter's (Corinne Carrey) relationship with a young man (played by lead singer Adam Levine). The younger man, however, constantly obsesses over his girlfriend's mother, understanding that, although she is constantly rejected by her husband and that her life is one of emotional anxiety, she is nonetheless beautiful and attractive, and possibly more so than his own girlfriend.
