Marcela Mangabeira sings her bossa version of Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger.”

Anyone familiar with original song will remember the pulsating bass drum line and catchy whistle melody that doesn’t seem to leave the mind. In this bossa nova version by Marcela Mangabeira, the former is absent but the latter is re-worked as a flute.

Bossa 012

Mangabeira embraces Adam Levine’s spirited performance and adds a layer of restrain that is suitable for the toned down arrangement. Not to suggest that this song is a drab affair, contrary to that, it has the grove to make you move.

The remix is off the album Bossa 012 which can be purchased in the itunes store
