We spoke to MKTO about smash hit "Classic," their acting careers and next single.

MKTO are back! After teasing new single “Bad Girls” earlier this month, the hip-hop/pop duo premiered the full song today (May 29) via a sexy lyric video. “Shows up to fill her cup, I know all she wants is just to get my love,” Tony Oller sings over a chunky bassline and horns. “I wish we could be just like Johnny & June, she cut out my heart and left me in the room.” However, that doesn’t stop his craving for a certain kind of lady.

“I love them bad girls doing bad things, lookin’ hot with an attitude,” he croons on the chorus. “Love them bad girls, like a bad dream shouldn’t want them but I do.” Malcolm Kelley then steps in for a slick verse that name checks Donna Summer (ie. the original Bad Girl). In many ways, MKTO’s latest is a beefier, edgier twist on the soulful retro-pop of breakthrough hit “Classic.” Don’t be surprised if it follows that track into the upper reaches of the Billboard Hot 100 before the end of the summer. Check it out below.
