The wait is over!

Maroon 5 teased its new single, "This Summer's Gonna Hurt Like a Motherf--ker," after joining Snapchat Thursday. The next morning, band members Jesse Carmichael, Matt Flynn, Adam Levine, Mickey Madden, PJ Morton and James Valentine premiered their hot new song on iHeartRadio.

The song opens with Levine singing what might turn out to be the catchiest hook of the summer: "This summer's gonna hurt like a mother--ker / F--ker / This summer's gonna hurt like a mother--ker / F--ker."

Levine explains why "this summer's gonna hurt" in the first verse and pre-chorus: "Her body's hot / Her body's like the summer / I'm in a trance or something / Her mind is not, no / As sharp as all her diamonds / She must be smoking something / I see her dancing in the streets / Sipping champagne on the beach / So expensive when she eats / 'Cause she's so fancy /I see her when I go to sleep /I check my phone when I am weak / She never posts anything deep / 'Cause she's so fancy."

In the song's second verse and pre-chorus, The Voice coach croons, "She wants it all / She's always taking something / And now I'm left with nothing / I'm ripping off, oh / I'm ripping off that bandage / Because I just can't stand it / I see her dancing on a fool / Like she's 17 and cool / She really thinks that she can move / But it's just nasty / I see her when I go to sleep / I check my phone when I am weak /She never posts anything deep / 'Cause she's so fancy."

Maroon 5 will perform its lastest single on NBC's The Voice Tuesday.
