Machine Gun Kelly Melipir ke Ranah Rock dengan ‘Why Are You Here’

Posted on: 12/19/19 at 11:28 am

Masih ingat waktu Machine Gun Kelly bilang ke fans di Twitter kalau dia akan merilis album rock di 2020? Well, dia tidak bohong. Sang rapper baru saja meluncurkan lagu baru berjudul ‘Why Are You Here,’ dan bisa dipastikan, ini adalah lagu rock.

Di lagu barunya yang catchy ini, MGK mengganti irama hip-hop dengan melodi gitar yang lembut, bass serta drum—semua komponen yang menjadi dasar lagu rock biasanya. Keluar dari zona rapnya, dia bernyanyi dengan iringan beberapa chant di setiap chorus-nya.

MGK toh sudah biasa membawa gitar saat tampil di atas panggung, dan bulan Juni lalu, sang rapper berkolaborasi dengan Yungblud dan Travis Barker dari Blink-182 di lagu hit ‘I Think I’m Okay,’ yang lumayan sukses di tangga lagu Hot Rock Songs Billboard. Dan patut diingat, dia sempat memerankan sosok rocker Tommy Lee dalam film biopik Mötley Crüe di Netflix, The Dirt. Mungkin karena The Dirt meledak, citra rocker lantas menempel pada sosok MGK yang memang cocok dia lakoni. Atau jangan-jangan dia sudah merencanakannya sebelum film itu rilis? Haha, entahlah. Yang pasti MGK memang keren.

“10 tahun kemudian beberapa orang masih tidak paham dengan fakta sederhana ini: kalian tidak bisa membatasi saya ke dalam satu genre saja,” tulis rapper yang berubah menjadi rocker ini pada Juni lalu di Twitter. Dengarkan ‘Why Are You Here’ di bawah ini, sambil intip juga liriknya!

Lirik lagu ‘why are you here’ dari Machine Gun Kelly

I hate that I saw you again last night
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again
We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah

I’m not myself
I’m not myself when you’re around, no
Can’t be helped
We are insane, that’s just the way it goes

I’m a demon in the night
She’s an angel with the white
Told me keep on all the lights
I’ma show you what you like
Help you put back on your clothes
Make sure nothing’s on your nose
Ain’t even tell my closest homies, nobody knows

I hate that I saw you again last night
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again
We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah

I couldn’t cry
I need to smoke, I’m feeling sick inside
From seeing you next to a friend of mine
We didn’t speak but I read your mind
Both telling lies, our alibis didn’t work this time

I’m a demon in the night
She’s an angel with the white
Told her keep on all the lights
You can show me what you like
Help me put back on my clothes
Make sure nothing’s on my nose
Can’t even tell my closest homies, nobody knows

I hate that I saw you again last night
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again
We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah

We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
(We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah)
We can never be friends
We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, I know that I said I was at home
Okay, yeah, you caught me
I thought that you said you were all alone
Look at you lying

I hate that I saw you again last night
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again
We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah

We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
(We can never be friends, yeah) Yeah (Yeah, yeah) Yeah
We can never be friends
We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
