One More Night by maroon 5
The One More Night by Maroon 5 music video follows an aspiring boxer from his training time in the ring to the climax during the big fight he has been preparing for. His training routine is set agist the backdrop of his home life, which he spends with a beautiful girlfriend and their baby. The video opens with shots of the boxer, played by singer Adam Levine, taping his knuckles and lacing up his boxing gloves. These images are contrasted with idyllic shots from inside his kitchen, where his girlfriend prepares dinner and he holds the baby girl. The girlfriend in the video is played by actress Minka Kelly.
The conflict becomes apparent as the boxer leaves to go off for his big fight. We can see the disappointment on his girlfriend’s face as she is left alone with the baby. It’s apparent she is always playing second fiddle to his boxing career. Later, Adam Levine takes on his opponent in a packed arena. The dramatic match ensues, and he pulls a big win by knockout. Meanwhile the girlfriend packs up boxes and suitcases. In the end, the boxer comes home to find his house empty, his girlfriend and the baby gone.
Like its title suggests, the music video One More Night by Maroon 5 deals with a struggle between the heart and the head. The music video surrounds the girlfriend’s struggle to leave the man she loves in search of a better life for herself and her child. It could also be interpreted from the boxer’s point of view, as he struggles with the choice between his career and his home life. It has also been compared to a recent breakup Levine experienced in his own life.
The video was released at the end of June, 2012. It was directed by Peter Berg under the A&M/ Octone Records label. The song was written and composed in a collaboration between Adam Levine, Shellback, Savan Kotecha and Max Martin. It is the second single off Maroon 5’s album Overexposed. It was filmed in the Wild Card Boxing Gym in Los Angeles, California.
