Ahead of his upcoming album mainstream sellout (Bad Boy/Interscope Records) on March 25, rock dynamo Machine Gun Kelly serves up a new EP, lockdown sessions, out now. The EP bundles three viral hit tracks that showcase the versatility behind one of the era’s most impactful crossover hitmakers.
The three-pack includes “roll the windows up,” a fan-favorite track previously known as “smoke and drive.” The update comes with more than a name change, though. MGK tacked on a new verse and shot a music video for the song, featuring the superstar and his drummer, Rook, smoking in a car in a no-frills, straightforward clip that captures the homegrown essence of a project strictly for the fans. Watch the full clip HERE.
The EP kicks off what’s sure to be a whirlwind month for MGK, whose new song, “ay!” arrives this Friday, March 4. Audiences caught a sneak preview of it during his Feb. 24 performance on CBS’ The Late Late Show With James Corden in a medley of “maybe,” “ay!” and current single “emo girl,” with WILLOW. The latter continues to build on its scorching start, with over 30 million streams and racing to the top 25 on alternative radio. All three songs will appear on MGK’s sixth studio album, mainstream sellout, coming March 25. Pre-order the new album HERE.
MGK has dominated the live space in the past month by performing on some of sports’ biggest stages, beginning with a headlining slot at the 2022 NHL All-Star Game in Las Vegas, where delivered a scintillating halftime performance for hockey and rock enthusiasts. And in the lead-up to this year’s Super Bowl, he and Halsey united for a blockbuster teamup for a Bud Light sponsored show at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
