Maroon 5's smash hit featuring Cardi B, "Girls Like You," caught a lot of attention for its cameo-filled nature, featuring the likes of Camila Cabello, Ellen DeGeneres, Gal Gadot, Jennifer Lopez, Behati Prinsloo and more. Not only did the song skyrocket in popularity (reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100), so did the video. In less than 10 months, the music video surpassed 2 billion YouTube views. "I have two young daughters, and to think about them being mistreated at all -- ever -- made my blood boil," Adam Levine recently told Variety of the tune. "So we went for it because I felt that as long as I stayed close to my heart with this concept, I could never go wrong. ... In the video, I was doing it for my kids and my wife. If anyone doesn't understand the intentions, f -- 'em." The band took to Facebook to thank everyone for watching. (Billboard)

Mark McGrath is ripping Peloton for allegedly stealing music to build its brand ... and he says it's time the company pays songwriters and artists. We got the Sugar Ray frontman at LAX Wednesday, and our photog asked him about the $150 million lawsuit claiming Peloton is jacking songs for spin classes. Ya gotta see Mark's reaction ... he's spinning mad about the whole thing, and he ain't holding back!!! Mark slams Peloton for allegedly using music it doesn't have the rights to ... and makes an easy-to-understand analogy for those who don't know how intellectual property works. Mark, who's written some hugely successful songs, is understandably upset ... but says he's more concerned about other musicians who can't afford to have their work stolen. We also asked Mark what's the best music to spin to -- so long as the rights are locked up. Hint: This band will help you slay your workout. (TMZ)
