Maroon 5 has released their new single "Payphone," featuring rapper Wiz Khalifa, off their upcoming fourth studio album, Overexposed.

The uptempo pop track is sure to be a summertime smash among female fans, especially with a chorus like: "If happy ever after did exist / I would still be holding you like this / All those fairytales are full of it / One more stupid love song I’ll be safe."

It's definitely one of the band's most pop-y singles to date, which makes sense. According to frontman -- and resident "Voice" judge -- Adam Levine, Overexposed will be the band's "most diverse and poppiest albums yet."

Maroon 5's last hit summertime single, 2011's "Moves Like Jagger," was a commercial success, going to the top of the charts in 18 countries. In the U.S., "Moves Like Jagger" was Maroon 5's first top ten single since 2007's "Makes Me Wonder."

Overexposed, which is slated for a June 26 release, was executive produced by Max Martin with additional tracks produced by Benny Blanco and Ryan Tedder.
