Multi-platinum pop duo, MKTO (Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller), have released the official music video for their new single, “Marry Those Eyes,” yesterday. The offering follows the pair as they enter a dark infinite void, filled with reflections, floating bodies, and epic performance visuals. “It was great working with Joe Brume (director), whose vision really brought new life and a dreamy vibe to the song,” says Malcolm.
The release of “Marry Those Eyes” continues the new chapter in MKTO’s already successful career. The single blurs the lines between pop and R&B with timeless charisma and effusive confidence, showcasing their knack for crafting infectious hits that push the envelope and defy categorization. The duo, who took the pop world by storm with their double-platinum worldwide smash, “Classic,” returned from a hiatus with 2018’s “How Can I Forget,” which has racked up close to 70 million total streams across the globe.
“Classic” hit #8 on the Billboard Top 40 chart, amassed more than 353 million streams on Spotify and more than 102 million views on YouTube, and transformed into a worldwide sensation with platinum and gold certifications in Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, United Kingdom, and Denmark. Meanwhile, MKTO’s self-titled full-length debut yielded other breakout hits such as “Thank You,” “God Only Knows,” and “American Dream.” Between selling out headline dates on three continents and supporting Demi Lovato in arenas, the next few years were a whirlwind for MKTO, with national TV performances on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Good Morning America, and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a performance for the First Family at the White House, and performing “Classic” on stage with Taylor Swift.
In addition to their music career, Malcom and Tony have also had numerous acting roles. After becoming best friends on the set of ‘Gigantic,’ Tony went on to appear in shows like ‘CSI: NY,’ ‘The Thundermans‘ and more while Malcolm joined the cast of the critically acclaimed film Detroit from Academy® Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, and appeared in shows like ‘Blindspot‘ and ‘Insecure.’
