He had already revealed that he worked with Willow previously, but had said that the song they had worked on together was called ‘Emo Prom’.

As the chorus of “I fell in love with an emo girl / I’m in love with an emo girl” entered, Willow ran into the frame to join him. 

MGK is now working on an album called ‘Born With Horns’ alongside drummer and producer Travis Barker. It’s unclear whether the Willow collaboration will feature on that record. The album’s first single ‘Papercuts’ – which arrived in August 2021 – continued the pop-punk sound of ‘Tickets To My Downfall’, while in an interview last year Kelly said the record would be “darker” and more “guitar-heavy” than his previous album.

Recently, Kelly has collaborated with Barker on Iann Dior’s new single ‘thought it was’, which appears on the rising artist’s recently-released third studio album, ‘On To Better Things’. The three musicians previously worked together on 2020 single ‘Sick And Tired’, as well as ‘Tickets To My Downfall’.
