A night of camping goes awry in Machine Gun Kelly’s latest video, “love race.” Featuring Kellin Quinn (who also appears on the track) as a bloodthirsty killer on the loose, the video finds the Sleeping With Sirens singer ruining a memorable trip in the woods with his murderous way.
Directed by MGK and Issac Rentz, the rock superstar enlisted popular influences Alissa Violet, Xowie, and Noah Beck for the song’s visuals. The starry video also includes Travis Barker on the drums.
The song has over 25 million global streams and has 16.2 million streams on Spotify alone. He also performed the track on Ellen last week, which garnered 1 million views and was trending on YouTube. On Sunday, May 23, Machine Gun Kelly won big at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards taking home the awards for Top Rock Album and Top Rock Artist. He’s also nominated for Alternative Rock Song of the Year for “bloody valentine” at the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards this Thursday.
Last month, MGK announced his Fall 2021 “Tickets to My Downfall” US Tour, which sold out in mere minutes. Slated to begin September 9th in Minneapolis, Minnesota at The Armory, MGK’s 28-city trek will include stops in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Denver. MGK will perform in his hometown of Ohio at the city’s largest venue, The Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse, for the tour’s finale. Special guests will also accompany the multi-faceted star ranging from carolesdaughter, jxdn, and KennyHoopla.
Kelly has stayed busy promoting Tickets To My Downfall throughout 2021. Back in April, Machine Gun Kelly performed after the conclusion of round 7 at the NFL Draft. The rapper turned punk rocker performed a number of songs from Tickets to my Downfall. Back in March, MGK directed a video for “DAYWALKER!,” which signaled the first time MGK and CORPSE, also known as Corpse Husband, collaborated.
