Machine Gun Kelly + BMTH’s Oli Sykes Debut New Song Together at Emo Nite
Machine Gun Kelly and Bring Me the Horizon singer Oliver Sykes teamed up to premiere a recording of their yet-to-be-released collaborative song "Maybe" at Emo Nite in Los Angeles last Friday (March 4).
"We love you guys," Kelly told the audience at one point during the surprise playback. "Can't wait for the new album, Mainstream Sellout, out March 25."
But will "Maybe" be on Mainstream Sellout, MGK's upcoming sixth studio album?

In the video, "Maybe" sounds like a fast and catchy pop-punk anthem. It also sounds like it features a few deathcore-style screams from Sykes.
During the premiere, Kelly and Sykes sang along to some of the track's lyrics, as NME reported. Lines included couplets such as, "I think I'm broken / Nothing can fix me" and "Made up my mind this evening / I'm taking the last, taking the last."
And while "Maybe" seems all but sure to appear on Sellout, an official track list for the LP, previously titled Born With Horns, has yet to come out.
Last week, MGK dropped Sellout's latest single, "Ay!" featuring rapper Lil Wayne, which throws back to Kelly's early hip-hop vibe. Other recent MGK tracks are the Willow-assisted "Emo Girl" and grunge-y rocker "Papercuts." Two years ago, Kelly went pop-punk with Travis Barker on Tickets to My Downfall.
Bring Me the Horizon recently recorded with pop star Ed Sheeran and are planning a new effort of their own. Last month, Sykes revealed what album got him into metal.
