MKTO go on a ‘Date Night Duel’ in ‘Shoulda Known Better’ visual

MKTO, the duo made up of Malcolm David Kelley and Tony Oller, have unveiled the music video for their latest single, ‘Shoulda Known Better’.

Directed by Dri Sommer and Nicol Biesek, the comedic visual sees Malcolm and Tony compete in a TV show (hosted by Aly Fritz) to win the heart of their potential new love interest, played by actress Scout Taylor Compton. Fun throwback fact for you – back in 2011, Scout played Tony’s love interest in the music video for his cover of Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’!

Joined by a third competitor (played by Chase Bews), MKTO take part in challenges including ‘Call Her Back’ and ‘Date Night Duel’ with hilarious consequences. With Malcolm failing to impress with his art skills, and Tony sweating buckets whilst trying to perform a magic trick, things aren’t looking too good for our favourite duo in the love department.

Who will Scout choose? Watch the video here to find out!


Reminiscent of the video for their 2013 hit ‘God Only Knows’, it’s great to see Malcolm and Tony having so much fun with this visual whilst showcasing their goofy sides. At the end, they also take the time to name some of their fans and give them a special thank you – how adorable!

‘Shoulda Known Better’ is MKTO’s latest release, following on from their comeback single ‘How Can I Forget’. The duo recently rounded up a mini tour of the West Coat, whilst they also performed at HD98.3’s Little Sundress Party in North Augusta alongside Drax Project and We Three.
