Your eyes don't deceive you. Maroon 5's new music video for "Girls Like You," featuring Cardi B, really does include all those celebrity cameos. You might lose count of how many inspiring and talented women show up to dance next to lead singer Adam Levine during the video's runtime.


If Charli XCX's "Boys" video was about all about the famous boys, it follows that "Girls Like You" would be all about the famous girls. And there are a lot of them, from musicians and actresses to athletes and activists. Camila Cabello shows up first, followed by Phoebe Robinson of 2 Dope Queens, and it's not long before gymnast Aly Raisman is there wearing a shirt that reminds us to "always speak your truth." 

The video also features Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot, Lilly Singh, Tiffany Haddish, Millie Bobbie Brown, Jennifer Lopez, Ashley Graham, and, of course, Ellen DeGeneres. Immigration activist Angy Rivera and Minnesota House member Ilhan Omar, America's first Somali Muslim lawmaker, also have cameos. Not to mention the woman of the hour, Cardi B. And that's not even everyone.

"'Cause girls like you / Run around with guys like me," Levine sings on the track. "'Til sundown, when I come through / I need a girl like you, yeah yeah." Obviously, Levine's wife Behati Prinsloo also appears in the clip, holding one of their daughters.
