Machine Gun Kelly Covers Don Omar In Madrid: Look + Listen

On Thursday (7.06) during his Mad Cool Festival gig, Machine Gun Kelly surprised fans by singing a cover of Don Omar’s reggaetón hit “Danza Kuduro.”

Addressing the audience in near-perfect Spanish., MGK said “Spain, thank you so much for welcoming me to your country. I can feel all the love here today.” “In return, I’d like to sing a song in your language with all of you. Let’s go!”

Taking to social media and poking fun at the people who made fun of him for his transition from rap to punk rock, Kelly shared an Instagram video of the moment with the caption “Haters will say I switched genres again.” And the superstar musician’s comment section was filled with fans surprised that he can speak fluent Spanish along with a co-sign by Don Omar who commented, “🤟🏾🔥.”

Diplo wrote, “This Guy woke up and spoke Spanish.”

“Go craaaaaaxy !!!!!!!!” added Swae Lee.

Performing such signature songs as “Kiss Kiss,” “Concert for Aliens,” “Emo Girl” and “My Ex’s Best Friend.” MGK performed a 17-song set as one of festival’s headliners alongside Lil Nas X, Lizzo, and Robbie Williams. 

Born Colson Baker, MGK spoke to Power 106’s The Cruz Show about studying a second language in 2016 when he and Camila Cabello “spoke Spanish” together after collaborating on their song “Bad Things.” “My Spanish is getting better. I have more motivation now.”
