I’ll keep this brief: MKTO is amazing. I mean they are really freaking amazing. I could honestly end this little rant right here but I guess i'll explain.
For one, I am a hardcore Disney Kid, and by Disney Kid I mean a Kim Possible, That’s So Raven, Lizzy McGuire loving Disney Kid. That being said, I loved the show ‘As The Bell Rings’ (And if you aren’t currently singing the theme song in your head just cease to call yourself Disney Fan), and that is where you may recognize the ‘TO’ of MKTO Tony Oller. So, to sum this up: Starred in a Disney Channel show , didn’t lose his mind afterward, also total Man Crush Monday material. Score one for MKTO.
Next argument, if you have heard their latest single ‘Classic’, you are probably already obsessing over them because that song is literally perfection. And yes I am highly exaggerating and heavily bias, I’m a college-aged fan girl…sue me. Bias (slightly) aside, this song is so unique and original. When Malcom’s rap starts I literally feel like he is rapping to me. It has a heavy Michael Jackson vibe to it; they even mention the King of Pop himself. And the whole song is basically about wanting this classy woman like the women from the good old days. Talk about bringing chivalry back. Tony Oller and Malcom Kelly just work really, really, well together. Two points for Gryffindor! (Sorry I got a little carried away there but you get the point).
Speaking of their music, their debut album doesn’t drop until April in the US, but being as awesome as I am I have friends in high places (and by that I mean in Australia where the album is already out) and got the chance to preview the album and let’s just say…this is not an album you want to miss out on. But this isn’t an album review, that’s a whole other rant for another day.
I promised I’d keep this brief-ish. So I’ll end my little rant with this: MKTO is really freaking amazing. Go check them out, watch the ‘Classic’ music video. And go forth and obsess my friends.
