On his new album mainstream sellout, Machine Gun Kelly fires off 16 tracks, crossing genres with ease with help from guests Bring Me The Horizon, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, and more.
Machine Gun Kelly is off to a blistering start with mainstream sellout thanks to his current hit collaborations with WILLOW and Lil Wayne.
“emo girl,” with genre-bending dynamic force WILLOW has already soared above 40 million streams and raced inside the top 25 of Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart. While “ay!,” featuring rap legend Lil Wayne, passed 11 million streams in its first week alone thanks to its visually captivating music video, in which MGK and his crew cycle through a parade of costumes that demonstrate his natural flair and rockstar lifestyle.
The release of mainstream sellout caps a whirlwind month for the cross-genre hitmaker. Earlier in March, he honored fans with the release of his lockdown sessions EP, which took three fan-favorite viral tracks and distributed them officially across all streaming services for the first time. For the drop, MGK also shot a music video for the standout tune “roll the windows up,” (previously released as “smoke and drive”), a no-frills clip where he and his drummer Rook smoke in the car and capture the project’s homegrown vibe.
In addition to his onslaught of new hit music, MGK has recently dominated the live space by performing on two of sports’ biggest stages: a headlining spot at the 2022 NHL All-Star Game in Las Vegas, and, in the lead-up to Super Bowl LVI, he and Halsey united for a blockbuster set for a Bud Light-sponsored show at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. He also took over the trendy supper club Delilah in West Hollywood for a track reveal befitting of the music and fashion mogul…he donned 16 different custom Dolce & Gabbana shirts that each bore the name of a song on mainstream sellout.
