“Wait On Me” is the Maroon 5 & Rihanna Mash-Up You Never Knew You Needed

Rixton, Capital FM, Lewi Morgan, Charley Bagnall, Jake Roche, Danny WilkinOn Tuesday, British band Rixton released their new single, “Wait On Me, and somehow, it’s equal parts Maroon 5 and Rihanna. Yes, you read that right: Maroon 5 AND Rihanna. I don’t know how the group pulled it off, but the result is actually pretty amazing. You probably know Rixton from their debut single, “Me and My Broken Heart,” which peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart earlier in 2014. The band received some criticism for just how closely “Heart” resembles Rob Thomas’ 2005 hit, “Lonely No More,” so it’s a bit odd that they decided to release a track that sounds like both Maroon 5’s “One More Night” and Rihanna’s “What’s My Name” as a follow-up. Will Rixton be able to make a name for themselves in the music industry if they continue to release such “familiar” songs?

I think it’s a valid question (though it’s important to note that “Heart’s” similarities to “Lonely No More” didn’t stop it from becoming a hit). So, why does “Wait On Me” remind me so much of Maroon 5 and Rihanna? Well, for starters, it was co-written and co-produced by Benny Blanco, who has worked with both Maroon 5 and Rihanna in the past. Stargate, Rihanna’s frequent production collaborators, also had a hand in creating the track. It’s all starting to make sense now, isn’t it?

“Wait On Me” is basically just this song about a guy telling a girl, “Look no further, for I am the best lover there is!” But, like, in a sexier, cooler way. Oh, and did I mention that the track rhymes “body” with “body”? Well, it does and it’s brilliant. On the chorus, Rixton’s lead singer, Jake Roche, sings:

Wait on me

I know how to love you and I wanna love you some more

Wait on me

Come a little closer, wanna be the one to explore

A little trouble never hurt nobody, ooh I wanna feel your body

Wait on me

I know how to love you and I wanna love you some more

Before Tuesday, I had no idea that I needed a Maroon 5/Rihanna mash-up, but I did. I really did. Listen “Wait On Me” via Rixton’s official YouTube channel below. If you’re diggin’ the song, be sure to check out the band’s debut EP, Me and My Broken Heart, on iTunes. Hopefully, the group will release their first full-length album soon.

“Me & My Broken Heart” in 60 Seconds

‘Wait on Me’ Lyrics, Links, & More

“Wait on Me”, Rixton’s follow up single to chart-topping “Me & My Broken Heart”, is officially out in North America just in time to become the anthem of everyone’s summer! It’s got amazing, poppy beats, sexy lyrics and whistling. And, I mean, what summer anthem doesn’t have whistling in it? Regardless, it’s receiving some really great feedback from fans and critics alike! And the positivity has certainly not gone unnoticed by the band. They took to twitter to thank everyone for the kind remarks!


Plus, one member took the time to painstakingly handwrite all of the lyrics so you can learn the words while simultaneously decoding their upwards slanting handwriting to be a symbol of their optimism in life. Any bets on which member wrote these ones?

So, if you live in North America be sure to get your hands on your very own copy of ‘Wait on Me’ on iTunes. If you don’t live in North America never fear! Rixton have posted a video where all international Rixters can give the new single a listen.
