EST 19XX/Bad Boy/Interscope recording artist Machine Gun Kelly has officially garnered his first #1 hit on pop radio with his Camila Cabello collaboration, “Bad Things.” Produced by The Futuristics (Chris Brown/Bruno Mars), “Bad Things” has also owned the Billboard Hot 100 list by staying strong for 13 weeks, currently holding the #4 spot for the week. The song has amassed more than 146m+ streams globally with a radio audience of 145m and is now RIAA certified platinum.
Machine Gun Kelly is kicking off 2017 strong; he made his debut daytime TV appearance last Monday on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. After their Ellen performance, MGK and Camila performed on BBC Radio’s Radio1 Live Lounge, in the UK, with a special acoustic performance of “Bad Things.”
Machine Gun Kelly has pushed to become the jack of all trades and diversify his creative portfolio with a number of projects outside of music. He was handpicked by famed writer/director Cameron Crowe for a regular role on the Showtime series, Roadies and also starred in independent films such as Punks Dead, Nerve (with Dave Franco and Emma Roberts) and The Land (with Erykah Badu) in which he served as co-executive producer.
Machine Gun Kelly has also successfully kicked off his fashion debut by signing to Wilhelmina Modeling Agency, and closed out the John Varvatos Fall/Winter 2017 “Wild at Heart” presentation in the last and biggest men’s show of NYFW last week. He will star in the upcoming Rupert Wyatt-directed sci-fi film, Captive State and is gearing up to release his third album this spring.
