WATCH: Crown The Empire Cover “Moves Like Jagger” Live

We have been gushing over Crown The Empire for a few months and as it turns out, they just keep getting better.

Proving why they are one of our favorite unsigned bands in North America, Crown The Empire unleashed their cover of Maroon 5′s “Moves Like Jagger” at The Doors in Dallas earlier this week. One fan captured the song on their phone and uploaded the clip for the masses to enjoy.
