Machine Gun Kelly and Hailee Steinfeld Connect in “At My Best” Video
The video for the Happy Perez-produced hit, which was directed by Hannah Lux and shot in Atlanta, sees MGK alone on a bus on his way to what looks like a party, where Steinfeld is waiting. Both look completely stressed out throughout the vid, and that makes sense, considering the song is about confronting your obstacles—whether they're tangible or just in your head.
We see that theme sort of alluded to when MGK stares at himself in the bathroom as he raps about being down, but definitely not out. I been hurt, I seen the scar tissue/If I show you, would you run away?/Do I gotta hide 'em for you to wanna stay?/Do I, even need you, should I leave you?" MGK raps as he gazes into the mirror, looking pretty dejected the whole while.
Things aren't looking so great for the Cleveland rapper and Steinfeld midway through the video and they're not necessarily looking better when they're giving each other blank stares at the end of it.
The release of the "At My Best" video continues what's been a strong promotional effort for MGK's Bloom album, which is due out on May 12. You can check out MGK's newest video just below and pre-order Bloom here.
