Machine Gun Kelly, the onetime rapper who has remade himself into the jester prince of a brand new wave of pop-punk, opens at No. 1 on the Billboard chart along with his newest album, “Mainstream Sellout.”
Produced with Travis Barker of Blink-182, and that includes visitor appearances by Lil Wayne, Willow and the British band Convey Me the Horizon — plus an audio snippet from Pete Davidson, who has performed Machine Gun Kelly on “Saturday Evening Dwell” — the album had the equal of 93,000 gross sales in america. That included 69 million streams and 42,000 copies bought as a whole bundle, in line with Luminate, the monitoring service previously referred to as MRC Knowledge.
It’s Machine Gun Kelly’s second No. 1 album, following “Tickets to My Downfall” almost two years in the past, and is the primary rock album to high the Billboard 200 chart since AC/DC’s “Energy Up” in November 2020.
Lil Durk’s “7220” is No. 2, the “Encanto” soundtrack is No. 3, Morgan Wallen’s “Harmful” is No. 4 and Olivia Rodrigo’s “Bitter” is in fifth place. Any gross sales bumps from Sunday night time’s Grammy Awards — the place high prizes have been received by Rodrigo, Jon Batiste and Silk Sonic — can be mirrored on subsequent week’s chart.
Additionally this week, “Legendaddy” by Daddy Yankee, the primary studio album by the reggaeton star in 10 years, which he has marketed as his last launch, opens at No. 8, a chart excessive for him.
