It's been almost two years since Maroon 5 lost their manager, Jordan Feldstein, who also became Adam Levine's close friend, yet his memory lives on, especially through their latest single, "Memories."

The music video of the song honored the late Feldstein towards the end when the screen turned black and flashed the words: "For Jordi."

During his interview on "The Howard Stern Show," Levine shared about the song and how he wanted to "personalize" the lyrics to fit his emotions. He said:

"I think that everyone shares in a world that is increasingly chaotic and crazy and angry in a lot of ways, rather than fight about the things, it's nice to have common ground and all of us have had a loss."

Levine also spoke about Feldstein and the song during his recent appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." He said:

"I filled in the holes with the proper words that I thought would match the experience that I had been going through. I have never had a song about anything quite like this. I miss him every day and to me this is the best way to pay tribute to him."

Under his wing, the Maroon 5 band became one of the most successful artists around the globe, with three Grammy awards and over 20 million albums sold. 

Feldstein, who is also the brother of Jonah Hill and Beanie Feldstein, died in December of 2017 due to a heart attack. He served as the Maroon 5's talent manager for 15 years before his passing. A representative revealed:

"Unfortunately, last night, Jordan called 911 for shortness of breath, when parademics arrived it was determined he went into full cardiac arrest and passed away shortly thereafter."

At that time, the Feldstein family asked for privacy during their time of mourning. They also asked to make donations instead of food and flowers given to the family."

A few months ago, Feldstein's sister, Beanie, wrote an essay about the pain she endured during her brother's death and the beautiful life he lived.

She described how grief is something beyond words and comprehension and how the pain that comes along with it is truly unimaginable. With his death, she also saw a new perspective on life and humanity.
