The Voice coach admits the band were tentative around the track but relished in the fear factor of unveiling it.

Maroon 5's frontman Adam Levine has confessed that the band almost never released their smash hit single 'Moves Like Jagger' because they were "scared".

The 'Payphone' star told Rolling Stone that the track was almost a "mistake" and highlights the song as a fresh injection the band required at that time.

He admitted: "'Jagger' was almost a mistake. I was scared to release it – but also turned on by that fear. It was the fresh injection we needed."

"We've been together a long time – it's like a marriage, where we needed to get kinky in the bedroom," he added, before guitarist James Valentine quipped: "It actually has spiced up our marriage. I love you guys more now!"

The Rolling Stones star Mick Jagger has previously confessed that the track also puts pressure on his dance moves when he goes out and called the song "very catchy".

Meanwhile, Adam has just finished filming The Voice where the final of the show was played out on US TV last night (8th May) and also saw a performance by Justin Bieber of his recent single 'Boyfriend'.
