Machine Gun Kelly feat. blackbear, "my ex's best friend"

Machine Gun Kelly shreds his guitar atop his crashed ride in the chaotic "My Ex's Best Friend" music video featuring blackbear that he premiered Wednesday (Aug. 26).

MGK sings about his taboo fling with his ex-girlfriend's right-hand woman while cruising in the middle of the desert. But things turn out even crazier when a fateful peep at his new boo sitting in the back causes him to avoid a head-on collision with his collaborator, and his car flips completely on its back.

But blackbear eventually saves the day with his Tickets to My Downfall tow truck cleverly titled after MGK and Blink-182's Travis Barker's upcoming pop-punk LP, which is set to be released on Sept. 25. Sparks of fire from the damaged vehicle that MGK stands on light up the barren road, and a cotton candy sunset backs the rapper's epic guitar recital.

And it's not the only thing MGK landed on top of, with "My Ex's Best Friend" notching a No. 1 hit for both artists on Billboard's Rock Streaming Songs chart last week (chart dated Aug. 22).
