He can rap, he can sing, he plays guitar, and he also acts. He is just such a breath of fresh air that I think the music world needed. Most people know that MGK has been out there hustling for a long time now and I am so glad that he is finally getting the radio plays.
Usually he raps though and this song? It’s just so different.
It almost reminds me of old school Blink 182 or maybe even Weezer, I’m sure both influenced this sound.
MGK took to Twitter to explain the meaning of this song and his passion for playing guitar!
I wrote "let you go" on my black Martin acoustic last year in my bed. thats also me playing guitar on the record. I'm so proud of this one.
Here is the part where I usually go into a rant about how much I love Machine Gun Kelly and how I am so happy he is finally getting the credit he deserves. All of those things are still true but I have to give Hailee Steinfeld a shout out.
She went from being a super serious child actress to singer, and she looks really good! The glow up is real with that one!
I prefer this to “Bad Things” and I won’t apologize about it!
Get ready everyone, Machine Gun Kelly is releasing his new album ‘Bloom’ on May 12th and I think it’s going to be a huge hit. Right now MGK is having one of the best years of his entire career, at least commercially.
Of course we all know “Bad Things” was a huge hit that kind of put MGK on the map for radio, but he has been putting out solid music for a long time now. Just throwing that out there, he isn’t an overnight success, he has been putting in work for a long time.
MGK’s new album will have 13 songs and features by Camila Cabello, James Arthur, Hailee Steinfeld, Ty Dolla $ign, Quavo, and Dubxx.
Should be a solid album and I expect this album to at least end up in the top ten of Billboard it’s first week, if not top five.
Are you excited for new MGK music or do you think he has sold out?
Both Little Mix and Machine Gun Kelly are both so hot right now. I am a new fan of Little Mix but a long time fan of Machine Gun Kelly so the fact that they were collaborating? I am about it, I can appreciate it.
The music video is fun, I don’t really get it but it’s fun enough. Nothing like some beautiful women feeling out of place at a bar so they ride a bull to fit in, right?
I have a feeling that Machine Gun Kelly will be featured on every song out there for a while so it’s no surprise to me that they threw him on this track at the end.
This song is going to be a hit. It is that simple.
Machine Gun Kelly has finally made a name for himself after all of these years. I am sure that some people will say that he sold out and there is a part of me that will say that I agree but, he has done songs like these in the past.
I do miss his fast flow, if you listen to really any of his other songs, they are insanely fast. This is just a little too slow for MGK in my opinion.
It doesn’t matter though because right now is MGK’s moment and he knows exactly what he is doing.
Hailee killed it on the chorus too! Can’t forget to give her some props!
In case you weren’t aware of it, Machine Gun Kelly is seriously one of the most talented guys out there right now. I know that most people only know him from the ht song “Bad Things” but I have been following his career for years. His rapping is amazing, his singing is amazing, he can act, and he plays guitar. I mean in reality, he can do a little bit of everything.
Enjoy his beautiful preview of a full blown acoustic version of “Bad Things”.
So proud of MGK for finally getting the recognition that he deserves.
Can I just say that I am beyond jealous that England has a station like BBC1 because the covers on this station are insane.
Anyway, Camila and Machine Gun Kelly are currently in London to do some promotion for “Bad Things”. I have to say that I really loved it. Both Camila and MGK sounded great, I loved his freestyle half way through.
It’s still kind of weird for me that Camila isn’t in Fifth Harmony anymore. I also really want to hear a solo song by her before I really make any judgement on her solo career.
This song is definitely one of the best songs of the year in my opinion. I don’t care what you have to say about fucking “One Dance” or “Work” this song is better than both of those.
I have to admit I think that this music video came out pretty awesome. There was a part of me that was worried they would just be in bed the entire music video but there wasn’t even a kissing scene. You could tell they were supposed to be in love and they didn’t even show her in nothing but her heels while she is losing all religion. Good job on that one!
Personally I have been a Machine Gun Kelly fan for years, I am just glad that he is getting some much deserved attention. Camila , we all know you’ll be first to go solo from Fifth Harmony, so I am ready for that too.
Anyone with eyes can see that Fifth Harmony is imploding which is just too damn bad considering they have just found their footing. Camila Cabello is trying to distance herself from the band, and has been for a while now, but here is another step in the solo direction. She is teaming up with rapper Machine Gun Kelly in a new song titled “Bad Things”.
Personally I think that this song will most likely be incredible. Machine Gun Kelly is absolutely one of my favorite rappers out there and Camila’s voice is great.
Do I think that when she leaved Fifth Harmony she will be the next Beyonce or something? No, but she will probably have two or three hits before she eventually fades out. Just my personal opinion.
Anyway, this track is going to drop on Friday and I personally can’t wait.
