Machine Gun Kelly joins forces with Camila Cabello of Fifth Harmony, for the anthemic new single, “Bad Things,” which is now available on all digital platforms via EST 19XX/Bad Boy/Interscope/Universal Music Canada. Produced by The Futuristic (Chris Brown, Three 6 Mafia, Bruno Mars), the mashup duet is an unlikely but welcome collaboration between the reigning rock star of rap and the rising Cuban-American pop princess who last year collaborated with Shawn Mendes on the smash “I Know What You Did Last Summer” from his album Handwritten.
On “Bad Things,” Machine Gun Kelly is his usual badass self while songbird Camila Cabello sings half-innocently, “Am I out of my head am I out of my mind…Don’t think that I can explain it, what can I say it’s complicated…” It is a beautiful juxtaposition that has undoubtedly produced a bonafide pop hit.
2016 has been an amazing year for Kelly, who has managed to diversify his creative portfolio with a number of projects outside of music. Handpicked by famed writer/director Cameron Crowe for a regular role on the Showtime series, Roadies, the 26-year-old bard can also be seen acting in the independent films Punk Is Dead, Nerve (with Dave Franco and Emma Watson) and The Land (with Erykah Badu). Machine Gun Kelly also successfully kicked off his fashion debut by signing to Wilhelmina Modeling Agency, walking the Runway in London and performing during NYFW.
