    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “One More Night” is a song performed by American pop rock band Maroon 5. The song was released on June 19, 2012, as the second single from their fourth studio album Overexposed (2012). It was written by Adam Levine, Shellback, Max Martin and Savan Kotecha, while production was handled by Shellback and Martin. It is a pop song with a strong influence of reggae. Lyrically, it talks about not getting along with someone and hoping he only stays with her just “one more night”. It is built upon the idea of the quintessential push and pull between what the heart, mind and body want, which are usually opposing things.

    The song received mostly favorable reviews from music critics. Most of them complimented the reggae influence on the track, Levine’s vocals and labeled it a “summer catchy song”. However, some critics perceived a lack of identity and criticized the song’s melody. The song debuted at number 42 on the Billboard Hot 100, while it debuted at number 27 on the Canadian Hot 100 chart. It has peaked at number 1 on the Hot 100 and number 2 on the Canadian Hot 100 chart. The song has also been a success on the Australian Charts, reaching number 2 and topping the New Zealand Singles Chart and the South Korean Gaon International Chart.

    A music video directed by Peter Berg was released on June 25, 2012. In the video, Levine becomes a boxer working to support his girlfriend and baby. As the singer spends time training for a big fight, he struggles to stay close to his girlfriend while raising their child together. Though he appears determined, his significant other seems troubled by his bloody profession and financial stability for their daughter, and leaves him in the end. The band performed the song for the first time on the Today Show concert series on June 29, 2012 and they also performed the track on the David Letterman Show and on their “Overexposed Tour” (2012).

Background and release

    After the success of “Payphone”, the band announced that “One More Night” was going to be released as the second single from Overexposed on June 19, 2012. On May 18, 2012, the band premiered the song at the Revel Casino and Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Composition and lyrics

“One More Night” was written by Adam Levine, Shellback, Max Martin, and Savan Kotecha, while production was handled by Martin and Shellback. It is a pop song, with a reggae beat infused into the percussion, giving the song a more dancey feel.

    Lyrically, the song is built upon the idea of the quintessential push and pull between what the heart, mind and body want, which are usually opposing things. It starts with Adam Levine’s “Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh”, underlined by a reggae beat. “You and I go hard at each other like we’re goin’ to war”, Levine sings and then tempers that statement by saying, “Try to tell you ‘no but my body keeps on telling you ‘yes’”, lamenting over not being able to resist the sexy charms of an addictive person. The chorus finds Levine bewitched by someone he knows he shouldn’t be with: “So I cross my heart and I hope to die / That I’ll only stay with you one more night / And I know I said it a million times / But I’ll only stay with you one more night.”

    Regarding the song’s theme, Amy Sciaretto of “Pop Crush” defined the track:

    “The song is erected on a thumped out beat, in addition to Levine’s signature falsetto, where he tosses off lyrics about not getting along with (or being able to untangle himself from) his lady love. Levine is hoping he only stays with her just ‘one more night’.”
Music video

Official video

    The official video for “One More Night” was filmed on April 20, 2012. It was directed by Peter Berg. It premiered on June 25, 2012 on MTV at 7:53 pm EST. Following the premiere, Adam Levine will be sitting down for a live half-hour webchat on MTV.com with journalist James Montgomery to talk about the video. Actress Minka Kelly plays Levine’s love interest in the video. “I play a heartbreaker, I guess,” she said in the clip. “I do very bad things… but necessary.” The tone of the video is supposedly dark, about him leaving the girl to be a boxing champ and her leaving him because she’s fed up.

Synopsis

    The video for “One More Night” opens with two goldfish swimming around in a bowl before segueing into a sequence where the seemingly idyllic home life Levine enjoys with video girlfriend Minka Kelly and their baby daughter is set against scenes of his hands being wrapped and of him training in a boxing ring. At home, he eats a protein-heavy meal and revels in his baby girl’s laughter as he holds her high in the air. But all is not well, as frequent cuts to Kelly’s concerned frown let on. The writing is on the wall when he has to leave for a big fight. As he steps into the ring to cheers, she packs her bags. He wins the fight, but when he returns home battered from the battle, he finds he’s lost everything that really mattered. Kelly and their child are gone and all that’s left are the relics of his profession — trophies, a jump rope, a few pictures and a lone goldfish.

Reception

    John Mitchell of MTV News commented: “The clip could be looked at as a metaphor for the difficulties Levine faces balancing his professional life as a world-famous singer and TV star and a personal life with the same wants (happy relationship, a family) as everyone else.” He further added: “Perhaps the video is a lingering response to his recent breakup from model Anne Vyalitsyna.” Robbie Daw of Idolator agreed, writing: “We wouldn’t be surprised to find out that the breakup had some impact on the theme for the video.” However, Daw noted: “The visual, for the most part, strays from the song’s lyrics, which seem to describe a man trying to resist the sexual charms of a woman he realizes he’s not compatible with.” Rolling Stone stated: “Despite the track’s laid-back reggae sound, the clip is quite emotionally heavy.” Alexandra Carpototo of “Pop Crush” commented: “We couldn’t even fathom leaving him; and him playing a father just makes us want him even more. There’s just something so hot about a bruised Adam Levine (both physically and emotionally).” Ray Rahman of Entertainment Weekly’s Music Mix wrote that “You might expect an epic music video — the ‘Payphone’ clip was a mini action film, after all — but the concept is on the subdued side.” Melinda Newman of HitFix thought that “The clip is beautifully shot and Levine gets to show off his boxing chops and his abs, but it’s a pretty tepid affair all around.” Emily Exton of Pop Dust commented about the end of the video, writing “Considering he boxes for a living, we’ll allow five minutes of wallowing before making requisite ‘get back in the ring!’ comments in reference to his dating life. Yes, she’s left him and yes, this is the woman who inflicted her Helen of Troy-like powers across the entire Lonestar State, but isn’t it always on to the next one? Good thing Levine loves ladies so much.”
