MACHINE GUN KELLY Drops Video for ‘I Think I’m OKAY’ feat. Yungblud & Travis Barker
The visuals for the hottest collab of Summer 2019 are finally here.
Our emo hearts are full.
Having teased the collaboration with blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and Yungblud for a while, Machine Gun Kelly has finally unveiled the result of their work in the form of a new track, I Think I’m OKAY. The song follows previous singles Hollywood Whore & el diablo and is expected to appear on the rapper’s forthcoming new album Hotel Diablo, which is set for release on July 5th.
Channelling his old school rock influences, I Think I’m OKAY once again brings MGK’s brutal honesty to the forefront. With lyrics such as “Watch me take a good thing and fuck it all up in one night”, there’s a personal hard-hitting feel to it as MGK and Yungblud both reflect on their life experiences. Adding a great dose of rock ‘n’ roll glam with an emo twist, the track is yet another bold offering in Machine Gun Kelly’s catalogue that further showcases his broad range of musical talents and his ability to float between genres with such ease.
Directed by Andrew Sandler, the visuals complement the track perfectly bringing back the aesthetic vibe and simplicity of the early 2000s rock and pop-punk music videos. This track is sure to be the summer anthem for all the misfits and misunderstood out there, and the clip only proves it. Watch the video below, it’s brilliant.
The track was premiered on Beats 1 as Zane Lowe’s World Record. In a conversation with Zane, MGK explains how both the track and the album were inspired by his role of Tommy Lee in Mötley Crüe biopic ‘The Dirt’ and the passing away of Chester Bennington.
