Mike Posner Co-Wrote “Sugar” on Maroon 5 ‘V’ Album

Maroon 5 are set to release their new album V on September 2, 2014! I’ve learned that Mike Posner is a co-writer for one of the songs titled “Sugar” that’s featured on their new album.

You may be thinking “Hmm, I think I recognize the song title “Sugar”,” and let me tell you why. In the Summer of 2013, while on the Kesha Warrior Tour, Mike Posner performed his version of “Sugar” live. This is the 3rd song that I’m aware of that Mike has written, recorded himself, and then gave away to another artist or band. The previous two songs are “IDGAF” by Nelly featuring Pharrell & T.I. and “Boyfriend” by Justin Bieber. It’s just the life of a songwriter.

Lyrics:

“Sugar” – Maroon 5

[Verse 1]
I’m hurting baby
I’m broken down
I need your loving, loving
I need it now
When I’m without you
I’m something weak
You got me begging, begging
I’m on my knees
I wanna be needing your love
I just wanna be deep in your love
And it’s killing me when you’re away, Ooh baby
Cause a bullet don’t care where you are
I just wanna be there where you are
And I gotta get one little taste

[Chorus]
Sugar
Yes please
Won’t you come and put it down on me
I’m right here, cause I need
Little love and little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little a sweetness in my life
Sugar
Yes please
Won’t you come and put it down on me

[Verse 2]
My broken pieces
You pick them up
Don’t leave me hanging, hanging
Come get me some
When I’m without ya
So insecure
You are the one thing, one thing
I’m living for
I wanna be needing your love
I just wanna be deep in your love
And it’s killing me when you’re away, Ooh baby
Cause a bullet don’t care where you are
I just wanna be there where you are
And I gotta get one little taste

[Chorus]
Sugar
Yes please
Won’t you come and put it down on me
I’m right here, cause I need
Little love and little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little a sweetness in my life
Sugar
Yes please
Won’t you come and put it down on me

[Verse 3]
Yeah
I want that red velvet
I want that sugar sweet
Don’t let nobody touch it unless that somebody is me
I gotta be a man
There ain’t no other way
Cause girl you’re hotter than a southern California bae
I don’t wanna play no games
I don’t gotta be afraid
Don’t give all that shy shit
No make up on
That’s my

[Chorus]
Sugar
Yes please
Won’t you come and put it down on me
I’m right here, cause I need
Little love and little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little a sweetness in my life
Sugar
Yes please
Won’t you come and put it down on me

[Chorus]
Sugar
Yes please
Won’t you come and put it down on me
I’m right here, cause I need
Little love and little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little a sweetness in my life
Sugar
Yes please
Won’t you come and put it down on me

Ty Dolla Sign released his new mixtape Sign Language and it features Mike Posner singing in a Interlude at the end of a track titled “Issue” featuring Wiz Khalifa. At this time, I don’t know anything else about the Interlude (approx. 32 seconds) or if it’s part of an actual full song. It does have potential to be a full song. I know I wouldn’t mind hearing more of it, because Mike’s vocals sound amazing as usual. Lord knows we’re STILL WAITING on his sophomore album Pages going on a year now, which still has no release date.

Interlude Lyrics:

Just cause I’m looking in your eyes, don’t mean shit
I still got my jewelry on while I’m deep in
I slip out the hotel room while you’re sleepin’

Never meant to do you wrong
Never meant to do you wrong (oh whoa whoa)
Never meant to do you wrong (oh whoa whoa)
Never meant to do you wrong (oh whoa whoa)
Never meant to do you wrong (oh whoa whoa)

Side note: I’ve been contemplating on making a post here on MPH to share something that I learned about Mike Posner and his record label RCA Records. I did share the information on Twitter and Facebook a few weeks ago. I haven’t mentioned it on here yet, because I’ve been waiting for an official announcement from Mike or a really reliable source. So, while I’m on the subject, I’ll just go ahead and mention it here.

I noticed that Mike Posner was removed from the Artists page on RCA Records official website. So, that has to mean he’s no longer with the record label, RCA Records. Either they let Mike go, or he left them. This explains a lot as to why we’re still waiting on Mike’s sophomore album to release. I hope he still wants to be a recording artist and continues to release his own solo music projects. Let’s hope that he’s got things figured out now, if not, then soon.

WE MISS YOU, MIKE POSNER! :)
