Adam Levine and Megan Thee Stallion are officially friends.

In a recent interview with People (the TV Show!) from the set of their upcoming music video, the Maroon 5 frontman, 41, speaks highly of the Grammy nominee, 26, after the release of their new track "Beautiful Mistakes."

"She's amazing," says Levine, who was meeting Megan for the first time at the shoot. "We love the fact that she's chosen us, or accepted our offer, to do [this song] because we've had this great history of [collaborations]. We love being there in that moment to collaborate with someone like her."

Adds the star, "She was so epic on set. ... [She is] just a lovely human being ... It was instant chemistry. [I] adore her. She's the best."

Megan and Maroon 5 (comprised of bandmates Levine, James Valentine, 42, PJ Morton, 39, Matt Flynn, 50, Sam Farrar, 42, and Jesse Carmichael, 41) debuted "Beautiful Mistakes" on Wednesday.

Interestingly enough, the collaborators met for the first time after recording the new track.

"We hadn't met because we recorded remotely and she did her verse," the Grammy winner says. "The way she did it was just, this is crazy. Like it was ... epic. It was really so catchy, but also just so raw, so good and absolutely flawless."

Levine says "Beautiful Mistakes" is a great pick-me-up amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"It's kind of a breath of fresh air," he says while guesting on People (the TV Show!). "It kind of feels like an older version of who we [are as a band] that we haven't shown in a while. I think it was really great. It's just a blast. It's a blast to listen to it [and] fun to sing."

He continues, "We have to have a break [amid the pandemic]. ... One thing we can all do is listen to music and dance. There's no restrictions on that. So, it's nice to be able to give a song that can pleasantly and positively distract people. And in a good way."

Up next, Levine and Maroon 5 will perform a concert as part of the American Express UNSTAGED series on March 30 at 9 p.m. ET. Click here for tickets and more information.
