Song appears on Mainstream Sellout
Fresh off the release of his highly anticipated sixth studio album, mainstream sellout, Machine Gun Kelly drops his new video “maybe” featuring Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes. The starry collaboration between MGK, executive producer Travis Barker, and Sykes is a masterful effort, as the rock geniuses take centerstage inside an empty building and give fans a strong performance. The blistering exhibition is a masterclass in delivering a thunderous rock show as they inevitably shatter the windows of the building, they’re performing in.
mainstream sellout is quickly usurping the competition on iTunes, climbing the top spot as the No. 1 overall album. It has also 12 million streams on Spotify since its midnight release and is the No. 2 overall album on Apple Music. An exclusive CD version is available only at Target and features an alternative album cover and an extra track.
The album boasts features from hitmakers including Gunna, Young Thug, blackbear, and iann dior. Plus, fans have already fallen in love with the album’s monster collaborations: “emo girl,” with Willow, which has shot to 50 million streams worldwide, “ay!”, alongside Lil Wayne, and “maybe” with rock innovators Bring Me the Horizon. Even more, man of the moment Pete Davidson appears on the album’s interlude track. The release also launches with 14 new lyric videos for the album’s tracks, all directed by Kyle Cogan at Simian.LA working alongside muralist Roshi.
Fans can soon catch MGK live as he prepares to embark on a headlining arena tour beginning June 8th in Austin, TX. The US trek spans 41 dates from June through August and includes MGK’s headlining slot at the 2022 Lollapalooza festival. After that summer stint, he’ll head to Europe for 15 stops in September and October. Supporting acts include a killer lineup of Avril Lavigne, Travis Barker, Willow, blackbear, Trippie Redd, iann dior and more rotating throughout the tour.
MGK’s album release adds to what’s already been a wildly successful start to 2022 for the cross-genre hitmaker. Earlier this month, 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. The album rollout also involved an exclusive video in partnership with Amazon for a hilarious mock-interview, with MGK portraying both roles and parodying many of the quips and criticisms directed at him.
