  • Machine Gun Kelly hooked up with X Ambassadors and Bebe Rexha to record this anthemic track for the Will Smith movie Bright:

    "I wrote my part of the song the day I found out Chester Bennington died," said Machine Gun Kelly. "My original verses were a little too dark because of where my lyrics were stemming from, so I re-wrote and re-recorded my verses 13 times until we got the one we wanted."
