Hear Machine Gun Kelly guest on jxdn’s new pop-punk anthem, Wanna Be
TikTok star jxdn has officially released his debut album Tell Me About Tomorrow (July 2) – and to celebrate, he’s shared a new video for his collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly and blink-182’s Travis Barker (duh).
The trio’s huge new sing-along pop-punk banger goes by the name Wanna Be, and hears jxdn and MGK admitting in the anthemic chorus: ‘I wanna be alright / I wanna be okay / I’m sick of the nightmares / I’m sick of the bad days…’
Travis Barker says of the young artist: “jxdn brings a new young energy for the next wave of pop-punk. We took time to really think everything out and make sure the album would be a complete body of work from front to back. And that’s exactly what it is.”
“No-one really knows how long it takes to make the perfect album,” adds jxdn. “For us it took a year. I’m just blessed to be a part of a genre that inspires millions, including myself, daily. We worked hard, learned a lot, and now we’re ready for the world to hear it.”
