AceShowbiz - Machine Gun Kelly has released a music video for his breakup anthem "Let You Go". The Cleveland rapper goes old-school in the clip, as it finds him playing a rock-and-roll star who sports a bright yellow suit while performing on a typical 1960s late night TV show with his band.
Despite the emotional song lyrics, the video features hilarious and flirty scenes, including a stuffy host who secretly smokes weed. MGK finds a love interest among the crowd as he performs the song. However, he has to cut the gig short when a cop appears to arrest him and his band for smoking marijuana in the building.
With the song showcasing more of MGK's clear vocal than rapping skill, fans gush over the rapper's new style on the track. "He is trying new styles. Very nice mgk keep up the creativity and positive vibes bro," a fan gushes below the video. Similarly, another writes, "Honestly before watching I was expecting some rapping! I love his new style it fits him."
"Let You Go" is the fourth release off the rapper's latest album "Bloom". The song finds MGK chronicling a bad breakup after the spark in his relationship has vanished. Prior to the release of the song, the spitter shared, "I wrote 'Let You Go' on my black Martin acoustic last year in my bed. That's also me playing guitar on the record. I'm so proud of this one."
It's been a big year for MGK. After reigning on music charts with his collaboration with Camila Cabello, "Bad Things", he released "Bloom" in May. The effort debuted at No. 8 on Billboard 200 chart. The set spawned massive hits such as "At My Best" featuring Hailee Steinfeld and "Trap Paris" featuring Quavo and Ty Dolla $ign.
"In a non-cliche way, love played a huge part in my life in the past two years, which was the years I was writing 'Bloom'. Don't think of a flower, but picture a flower as a metaphor...You seen the thornes. Like a rose, one of the most beautiful flowers. There's thornes all over this motherf**ker," he said of the album, before adding, "But if you look a little bit farther and you wait, there's a beautiful being about to come out."
