As someone who's understood what audiences want to see since he started his career as a performer in the early 1960s, it's somewhat surprising that it's taken this long for Mick Jagger to finally take to social media and deliver a video of himself performing some of his signature moves to the Maroon 5 song, "Moves Like Jagger."

Indeed, it's somehow even more surprising that when he finally decided to do so, he did it not to the Maroon 5 version of the tune but, in fact, to a cover version played by a band at Basil's Bar, located on the Caribbean island of Mustique.

It's hard to say why it took Jagger so long to properly embrace the song and its message online, but having said that, it's not as if he's never acknowledged its existence before this. In fact, it's effectively the only thing anyone wanted to ask the Rolling Stones frontman upon the song's initial release, and if he had any hesitation about tackling the topic, he managed to keep it under wraps.

"It's very flattering, isn't it?" he told the BBC in 2011. "Hilarious. They asked me to come and play with them...but I don’t think it’s going to happen."

"It's very catchy," he told The Sun in 2012. "It's funny. Only thing is, it puts pressure on me when I go out dancing! I wish I had written it. But wouldn't that be weird? It's not really like a Maroon 5 song, so they're probably as surprised by the success of it as I am."

Later in 2012, he popped up on The Late Show with David Letterman to deliver the top 10 list "Top 10 Things I, Mick Jagger, Have Learned After 50 Years In Rock N’ Roll," during which he referenced the song in one of the entries. Which one? Well, there's no point in having us spoil it when you can just watch the clip below...
