American rapper Machine Gun Kelly gunned his way through the billboard charts and emerged No. 1 on the Hot 200 with his ”Mainstream Sellout” project.
On its first week of release, the album, Machine Gun Kelly’s latest, sold 93,000 equivalent album units, indicating the youngster still has mainstream appeal.
In a tweet soon after making the top spot, the songster had acknowledged his album’s triumph, noting it wasn’t easy, but he made it anyway.
This isn’t the first time the youngster had popped at the top of the Hot 200 chart, however. As early as 2020, with his “Tickets to my Downfall” album, he’d made his debut on the chart.
Known as much for his music as for his controversies, Machine Gun Kelly takes singular delight in putting himself out there. If he isn’t spewing some controversial shi, he’s doing something with his longtime girlfriend Megan Fox and getting the soft sell mags talking about him.
“Mainstream Sellout” cannot be more deserving of its title given how well it’s doing currently.
The songster didn’t attend the Grammys this year because “Tickets to My Downfall” didn’t receive any nominations, although it was eligible in the rock categories. He had tweeted about that, using the WTF phrase in a question to the award body.
