One week after unveiling the cover art for his third studio LP Bloom, Machine Gun Kelly has shared the record’s 13-song tracklist.
Bloom will comprise of MGK’s smash hit “Bad Things” with Camila Cabello and “At My Best” with Hailee Steinfeld. His latest single “Trap Paris” which just dropped on Friday and features rappers Quavo and Ty Dolla $ign is set to be part of the album as well.
MGK received his first #1 hit on Pop radio earlier in the year alongside Cabello and most recently scored a Billboard Award nomination for Top Rap Collaboration. He was also included on Little Mix’s latest single “No More Sad Songs.”
The 26-year-old spoke with Rolling Stone this week, sharing that Bloom was greatly inspired by 90’s rock band Radiohead.
“I was listening to a lot of Kid A when I made it,” he said. “They use unconventional sounds to fill up the production. I have the same goal: to push people’s minds.”
As the rapper has made his way into pop music limelight, fans have not yet all adjusted to the transition. MSK also told the publication about the blowback he has received from the underground scene for being on mainstream radio.
“I’ve given so much to the underground. For the underground to come up and say my music has changed? It’s like, “You f****** 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.”
None-the-less, MGK enjoys the path his career has taken him, deeply appreciating the “rock star” life.
Bloom is slated for release on May 12 and now available to pre-order through iTunes.
