Machine Gun Kelly and WILLOW team up for ”emo girl”—listen
MGK previously teased the release of the song on his TikTok. He also sat down with producer Travis Barker to tell him that the new album's name, which they previously got tattooed on their arms, would be changed from born with horns to mainstream sellout.
"emo girl" is another addition to the growing pop-punk revival. The lyrics describe all of the classic accouterments of a scene kid: fishnets, black boots and cigarettes. It also starts with a clip of Megan Fox saying, "I am a God," from the cult-classic film Jennifer's Body. A lot of the lyrics seem to allude to Fox's character in the film: a beautiful, entrancing monster with a dark side.
