Simple Plan get an assist from MKTO on their latest version of "Summer Paradise."
Most bands release a song once, and then call it a day. But not Simple Plan, the Canadian pop-punk veterans who... Wait, that sounds a little weird now that we write it. Veterans? Is "I'm Just A Kid" really more than 10 years old now? Yikes. Anyway, as we were saying... the Canadian pop-punk veterans, who just re-released the fourth version of their breezy, beach-pop track "Summer Paradise." Only this time around, the band tapped pop/hip-hop duo MKTO to throw down a brand-new guest verse.

Did you know that MKTO is obsessed with Cool Ranch Dorito Tacos? WELL, NOW YOU DO!
Electro-pop/hip-hop/R&B outfit MKTO (that's singer Tony Oller and rapper Malcolm David Kelley) met on the set of TeenNick's "Gigantic" and have been IRL BFFs and musical collaborators ever since. Thanks to their bangin' single "Thank You" (think a perfect blend of Chiddy Bang, Wallpaper., and a smidge of Outasight), the boys have been on our radar for well over a minute, and during that time, we got, how shall we say... A LITTLE CURIOUS. So of COURSE we arranged for a little tête-à-tête with MKTO so we could find about about all the things they're obsessed with: things like Cool Ranch Dorito tacos from Taco Bell, totally weird socks, and "Family Guy."

It's time to get on the MKTO bandwagon ASAP. The boys are still pretty new, so we'll fill you in on WHY a bandwagon situation is necessary: MKTO is an electro-pop/hip-hop/R&B (genre-bending, we know) duo featuring singer Tony Oller and rapper Malcolm David Kelley. Put that all together, and you've got a band that reminds us a little of Chiddy Bang mixed with a dash of Wallpaper., plus maybe a smidge of Outasight.
So, how'd these two bros get hooked up? Well, Kelly and Oller met as child actors (FYI, Malcom played Walt on "Lost"!!) on the set of TeenNick's "Gigantic." Now, the two are besties4lyfe, signed to Columbia Records, working on their upcoming debut album, Role Models, and have released a video for their lead single, "Thank You." And just in case you felt like you didn't know the boys well enough, now you can get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of "Thank You."
