MKTO are a pair of actor/singers who straddle the worlds of pop and hip-hop with their upbeat anthems.
∙ Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller met in 2010 while costarring in the teen TV series Gigantic, and they formed MKTO shortly after—the group’s name is a combination of their initials.
∙ Their 2013 breakout single, “Classic,” went double Platinum and reached No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100.
∙ Canadian pop-punk outfit Simple Plan enlisted MKTO to guest on a new version of their hit single “Summer Paradise” in 2013.
∙ Their 2014 self-titled debut album, which featured a guest spot from R&B crooner Ne-Yo, charted in several countries and went all the way to No. 1 in Australia.
∙ Following a hiatus from the group, Kelley and Oller returned to MKTO in 2018 and kicked off a run of new singles with the song “How Can I Forget.”
