Machine Gun Kelly and Rihanna

Machine Gun Kelly Covers Rihanna’s ‘Love on the Brain’

Machine Gun Kelly takes on Rihanna.

For Day 21 of his “Lockdown Sessions,” the Cleveland rapper performed a cover of Rihanna’s “Love on the Brain” at the request of Marilyn Manson. The legendary shock-rocker called into MGK and put in his request, much to the surprise of Kelly.

But he made the ANTI ballad his own with an almost unrecognizable rock remake. While standing in his living room, he performed his grungy rendition, complete with a guitar solo.

MGK previously covered Oasis’s “Champagne Supernova” with YUNGBLUD and Paramore’s “Misery Business” with Travis Barker, Omar Fedi, and Steve “Baze” Basil as part of his quarantine-inspired “Lockdown Sessions.” His PVRIS-inspired cover “In These Walls” became the top-trending video on YouTube with over 7 million views.

MGK, who celebrates his 30th birthday today, is now gearing up for his pop-punk album Tickets to My Downfall.
