Simultaneously, they remain one of the world's most engaging and exhilarating live acts, selling out sheds coast to coast. Most recently, Maroon 5 recorded and released the song "Visions" on the deluxe edition of the Red Pill Blues album which Jared "Dirty J" Watson and Dustin "Duddy B" Bushnell co-wrote "Visions" with Maroon 5's Adam Levine and mc/producer, Blueprint.
