Camila Cabello’s Solo Plans: Performing With Machine Gun Kelly On Late Night
Camila Cabello is ditching Fifth Harmony, but only for a night. Amid the rumors that Camila is set to flee from the girl group for her own solo music career, she is scheduled to perform with Machine Gun Kelly on The Late Night Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Camila Cabello and Machine Gun Kelly have already released their new song called “Bad Things.” Now, it’s time for them to promote their new song. They will perform their new single on the “Thanksgiving Eve” edition of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, as reported via Headline Planet. NBC has included the duo for the Nov. 23 episode of the late-might talk show. The episode will also feature an interview with Leslie Mann and the latest edition of “Falloinventions.”
The performance will mark the first Tonight Show visit for MGK, and the second for Cabello, who previously performed the hit song “I Know What You Did Last Summer” with Shawn Mendes. Check out the video of their performance below.
Two weeks ago, Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello’s “Bad Things” reached the Top 40 on pop radio. It could likely enter the Top 30 on this coming week, according to a separate report via Headline Planet. It could also perform the same on rhythmic radio. “Bad Things” is currently at No. 31 on the rhythmic chart, but it could slide into the Top 30 before the end of the week.
According to Mediabase, “Bad Things” received 1,565 pop spins during the first five days of the Nov. 6-12 tracking week. While the song is still at No. 31 on the pop chart, it still could top Dua Lipa’s No. 30 song “Blow Your Mind (Mwah),” which received 1,582 spins.
When the song first dropped, it hit the Top 20 on iTunes, according to Teen Vogue. “It’s out!!! thank u guys so much for the love. following as many of u as I can that are downloading the song now,” Camila tweeted.
Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello have proven how well they work together. The duo’s chemistry has also been displayed behind the scenes. The two made an appearance on iHeart Radio and talked about how close they have gotten since collaborating. Cabello and MGK did away with the typical Q&A round and played some Jenga instead – with fans’ questions written on each block they picked.
Camila admitted that she never played the game before, but she looks like a pro at it. They both managed to keep the tower standing upright until the 3:10 mark when MGK pounced onto the blocks and knocked it down. They decided that they both won the game.
As for their duet, Cabello revealed her favorite lyric is the one she gets to sing: “I can’t explain it/ what can I say? It’s complicated.”
“You’re like I don’t freaking know,” she explained the emotion of being drawn to someone in a way that you can’t explain.
The song also includes the lyrics: “Nothing’s that bad / If it feels good / So you come back / Like I knew you would / And we’re both wild / And the night’s young,” MGK raps, to which Camila responds: “Am I out of my head? / Am I out of my mind? / If you knew the bad things I like / Don’t think that I can explain it.”
Fans are still waiting for a music video from the duo. For now, this cute interview should hold you over.
This is clearly not the first time that Cabello has dropped a collaboration outside of Fifth Harmony. She’s also been seen collaborating with various producers on her Snapchat account, including Diplo. It’ll be interesting to see if Cabello will release any more solo projects outside of her work with Fifth Harmony.
