Machine Gun Kelly Is Uncharacteristically Vulnerable On New Song “Let You Go”May 2, 2017
New lyric video.
Machine Gun Kelly puts rap to rest on new song “Let You Go.”
This might be MGK’s most radio-friendly release yet. On the latest track off his forthcoming album bloom. (out May 12), the rapper sings(!!!) about a broken heart.
“Since you left, I’ve been holding on to a memory,” he laments over a somber guitar melody. “Since you walked out that door, yeah. And you said I changed and you’re so damn sick of me / You’re not mine anymore.”
Where MGK really strays from his familiar style is the massive Coldplay/Fall Out Boy-inspired chorus and “woahs.” Sometimes when an artist switches their sound to fit the mood of mainstream, it can come off as desperate, but this works for him. I think it’ll also find a squishy spot on the radio.
“Let You Go” follows “Bad Things” featuring Camilla Cabello and “At My Best” with Hailee Steinfeld. Listen and watch the lyric video below:
