The track is the latest to be released off MGK’s upcoming Mainstream Sellout album, formerly known (and commemorated via matching tattoos) as Born With Horns. Production on “Ay!” was handled by Travis Barker (also credited as a co-writer), BazeXX, and SlimXX. The former, of course, is a frequent MGK collaborator, having just last month reteamed with the Tickets to My Downfall artist for the Willow-featuring “Emo Girl.”
Per MGK, the official video for the latest Mainstream Sellout cut was filmed “in my living room on an iPhone” earlier this week. See that up top. “Ay!” is also available to stream on Apple Music (see below), Spotify, Tidal, and all other major streaming services.
When teasing the track earlier this week, MGK—who also shared a pair of photos of himself with Weezy and Barker—suggested that the trio could have another collaboration on the way. “[T]he stories from these two studio sessions are legendary, we’ll just start with the first song tonight tho,” the One Way star said.
This week also saw an official streaming release for selections from MGK’s lockdown sessions circa 2020, complete with a new video for “Roll the Windows Up (Smoke and Drive Pt. 2)” featuring drummer Rook.
