The recent trailer of ‘Paradise City’ on Amazon Prime Video features Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker‘s cover-A Girl Like you. The unreleased cover turned out to be an absolute banger. Paradise City, a spin-off from the movie American Satan, is releasing on 25th March. It is based on how the meeting of a rockstar and a kid, who is a big fan, changes their lives. The series also focuses on the most important and common detail between them, ‘Music’.
A View of the Paradise City
Machine Gun Kelly is evolving in his punk style and the classic ‘A Girl Like You‘ is a perfect example. The series has a recurring cast from American Satan. And, Andy Biersack (as Johnny Faust), Bella Thorne ( as Lily Mayflower), Cameron Boyce (as Simon), and Drea de Matteo (as Maya) take up the major roles.
The note on the preview reads, “For kids that grow up with one parent. You can go on one of two paths: You can blame the world, your parents, blame God, blame lack of God. Or it can light a fire under you that you’re gonna make it no matter what. Paradise City is the show made to inspire these millions of teenagers and young adults. It reminds us that there is no light without darkness, that sorrow and heartbreak can be the greatest drivers of art. It reminds us that there is always hope, that you are never alone and that music is always there if you let it be”.
Kelly and Barker’s Collaboration
Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker’s – A Girl Like You is a collaboration between the artists. This is not the first time that the two have worked together on a project. Barker was the producer of Kelly’s Tickets To My Downfall album. It was released on 25th September 2020. The album was all about Kelly‘s transition into pop-punk from his hip-hop-heavy catalog. Tickets to my downfall was the first rock album to top the Billboard 200 after a long time.
Previous summer the duo covered Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Killing in the Name’. And they posted the clips from the Black Lives Matter protests.
