After scoring a well-deserved commercial breakthrough with “Classic” (the summer smash recently peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100), the guys from MKTO are hoping to build on their momentum with “American Dream”. The cautionary/inspirational tale received a lyric video today (August 8)  — three months after the actual visual dropped. That’s different!

The unusual timing probably has something to do with the infectious anthem’s international release schedule but who’s complaining. Now you get to sing along to MKTO’s latest hit while watching someone’s road trip from the middle of nowhere to Los Angeles. And if you’re wondering who the hell Jack and Diane are, just ask your parents or watch this.

Does MKTO have another hit on their hands? Let us know in the comments below.
