"She Will Be Loved" is a song by the American pop rock band Maroon 5. It was written by frontman Adam Levine and lead guitarist James Valentine. The song was released on June 8, 2004, as the third single from Maroon 5's 2002 debut studio album, Songs About Jane. The single peaked at No. 5 in the United States and by December 2012 had sold more than 2,722,000 digital downloads.[1] It peaked at No. 4 in the United Kingdom. In Australia, it reached No. 1, a position it held for five non-consecutive weeks. The single is noted for its music video starring Kelly Preston in a mother-daughter 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 No. 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. As of June 2014, the song has sold more than 3 million copies in the United States.[2]

Commercial performance[edit]

United States[edit]

"She Will Be Loved" entered the Billboard Hot 100 at #50 as the Hot Shot debut of the week on July 24, 2004.[3] The song rose to No. 20 on August 21, 2004, giving Maroon 5 its third consecutive Top 20 hit on the chart.[4] "She Will Be Loved" continued to gain in performance and rose to #9 on September 11, 2004, becoming Maroon 5's second top-ten hit from Songs About Jane after the band's previous hit "This Love".[5] The song reached its peak position at No. 5 on September 25, 2004, matching the peak position of "This Love" from earlier that year.[6] It fell to No. 6 a week later and stayed in that position for three weeks,[7] before rising back up to #5 on October 23, 2004 for two more consecutive weeks.[8][9] "She Will Be Loved" was certified platinum on April 18, 2011 by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and has sold 3,197,000 copies in the US as of June 15, 2014.[2]

Music videos[edit]

Scrapped version

The first video for "She Will Be Loved", which is originally filmed until was later scrapped to re-shot with the new version.[clarification needed][10] In the video, Maroon 5 performed the song in a house with scenes of them are rotating, similar to the band's other video for "Harder to Breathe".[11]

Official version

The second music video for "She Will Be Loved" premiered on MTV's TRL, on July 16, 2004.[12] Directed by Sophie Muller,[13] with original sequence by Johanna Bautista (Sweetheart Massive Attack) tells a sad love story, featuring a lovelorn socialite (Kelly Preston) and her rich, deadbeat, abusive husband (John Colton), whose relationship is juxtaposed with that of their daughter's (Corinne Carrey) relationship with a young man (portrayed by 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.

The video is often compared to the 1967 film The Graduate, as it has similarities with the storyline between the daughter, the boyfriend and the mother. Adam Levine explained about the video: "Maybe take some beautiful shots from that movie, which is one of our favorite movies of all time".[14] The music video was uploaded on the band's YouTube channel on June 16, 2009. The version of the song used in the video is the radio mix version found on the 10th anniversary edition of Songs About Jane. As of August 2020, the video has received over 560 million views.[15]

Awards and achievements[edit]

In 2005, the song was nominated at the 47th Annual Grammy Awards in the Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals category.

Appearances in other media and other versions[edit]

The song was featured on the television shows, One Tree Hill, Smallville, Medium, The 4400, Dancing with the Stars, Laguna Beach, What I Like About You and The Sopranos and the 2010 romantic drama film The Last Song. It appeared on the video games Band Hero, Rocksmith and Lips: Party Classics.

Two different versions of the song were featured: an acoustic version that appeared on Maroon 5's live album 1.22.03.Acoustic (2004), and a Cuban version from the album Rhythms del Mundo: Cuba (2006) by Rhythms del Mundo. Australian singer Kate Ceberano recorded a cover version for her album So Much Beauty (2008).
