Lace up! Two years after dropping General Admission, Machine Gun Kelly is back with his third album bloom.
Led by the Camila Cabello-assisted “Bad Things,” which peaked at No. 4 on the Hot 100, bloom is a star-studded endeavor. More recently, the album spawned “At My Best,” which features Hailee Steinfeld.
Additionally, the 13-track set features Quavo and Ty Dolla $ign on the previously-released “Trap Paris,” DubXX on “Moonwalkers,” and James Arthur on “Go for Broke.”
Recently, MGK spoke with Rolling Stone about his pop-leaning singles and the reception from his underground fans. “I’ve given so much to the underground,” he said. “For the underground to come up and say my music has changed? It’s like, ‘You fucking idiot, my formula has never changed.’ How can the community that was hugely responsible for sparking a fire under me turn their backs on me? Fame is the weirdest thing ever.”
Nevertheless, Young Gunner will rock on. “One hundred thousand percent,” he added. “Being a rock star rocks.”
