Machine Gun Kelly releases Rihanna cover

Song is part of his YouTube Lockdown Sessions

Machine Gun Kelly shows off his creative abilities by releasing a new cover from a special request of the one and only Marilyn Manson. This time, Machine Gun Kelly adds a unique twist to Rihanna’s 2016 single “Love On The Brain,” which had an immense amount of inspiration on Marilyn Manson’s 2017 album Heaven Upside Down.

Over the last month, Machine Gun Kelly has kept busy by unleashing various covers and freestyles that have influenced his upcoming pop/punk album Tickets To My Downfall. Last week, MGK added his freestyle of PVRIS single “In These Walls” to his Lockdown Sessions series which peaked trending No. 1 on YouTube.

While having a major presence on YouTube and Instagram during this time, Machine Gun Kelly has posted covers of “Champagne Supernova” with Yungblud, along with Paramore’s “Misery Business” featuring Travis Barker, Omar Fedi, and Steve “Baze” Basil.

Aside from music, Machine Gun Kelly is set to star opposite Sam Worthington on the big screen in the forthcoming action western; The Last Song of Issac LeMay, which has already begun production. He is also seen in Jason Orley’s comedy Big Time Adolescence which is now available on Hulu.
