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

[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

Before the song debuted on the radio, Maroon 5 performed it at one of their shows, sans Kendrick Lamar. Even then, without Lamar the song had already been gaining attention. You can listen to the song below. Adam Levine’s lines speak about not wanting to know what his ex is doing now or who she is. Kendrick’s short rap verse is about showing his former lover exactly what she has been missing.

Kendrick Lamar has been contributing to the songs of major artists this year, including Kanye West, Beyonce and Sia. His part in this song is short, but meaningful.

“Don’t Wanna Know” is produced by Grammy Award-winning producer, Benny Blanco. He had earlier produced Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger,” “Payphone,” “Maps,” and “Animals.”

The official music video of the song is not far behind. The video is scheduled to drop on Friday, October 14 on NBC’s Today Show. Adam and Co. reunited with David Dobkin, a film producer and director who has shot a few music videos in the past, including Maroon 5’s “Sugar.”

Maroon 5 is set to perform the song live on November 3 on Ellen. However, the band has performed the song at their show in San Antonio. Watch the performance clip below.
