Corpse Husband, going by his musical artist name CORPSE, and Machine Gun Kelly released DAYWALKER! on 12th March -- and it is everything you’d expect it to be.
After MGK came from one of his hottest years to date, seducing the punk-rock genre with his natural hip-hop and rap charisma, this single definitely shifted gears for Kelly, sending him back years to a darker, more grunge material.
On the other hand, CORPSE did CORPSE things throughout the song. With his enigmatic voice and his punchy delivery, DAYWALKER! definitely plays with the listener’s trust using volume to its advantage.
The 23-year-old started releasing music back in June 2020 with his debut single “Miss You!”, followed up by the viral hit “E-Girls Are Ruining My Life!”, hitting No. 2 on Spotify's Viral 50 songs chart.
The latter really raised the bar for CORPSE as TikTok boosted its popularity after an Among Us clip of CORPSE and Imane “Pokimane” Anys went viral.
While it’s significantly a short song, DAYWALKER! is already catching fire on both Genius and YouTube algorithms -- and Machine Gun Kelly is also to thank.
