It’s here! Music phenomenon Machine Gun Kelly releases his highly anticipated sixth studio album, mainstream sellout.
Its arrival caps a massive few months for the rock dynamo that included multiple hit singles and landing the cover on this week’s issue of Billboard, who hailed him as “Pop-Punk’s Crown Prince.”
The magazine also shot a revealing 10-minute behind-the-scenes video interview with the hitmaker, in which he refutes critics who claim his artistry isn’t authentic, reveals personal regrets and insecurities and, of course, shares inspiration and insights behind his musical craft.
Check out the Billboard exclusive video below!
mainstream sellout 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 brand-new lyric videos for the album’s tracks, all directed by Kyle Cogan at Simian.LA working alongside muralist Roshi. Watch them all on YouTube!
MGK’s album release also 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.
