Machine Gun Kelly scores his first No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums (chart dated Nov. 7), as General Admission starts at the peak, selling 49,000 copies in the week ending Oct. 22 (according to Nielsen Music). MGK last surfaced on the chart in 2012 when Lace Up peaked at No. 2. General Admission bows at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with 56,000 equivalent album units.
While no singles from the new set are currently ranked on our airplay or hybrid (airplay/sales/streaming) songs charts, two songs charted on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs earlier in 2015; “Til I Die” reached No. 32 (issue dated Jan. 24), while “A Little More,” featuring Victoria Monet, peaked at No. 35 (April 18).
Meanwhile, a handful of album tracks have bowed on the Rap Digital Songs chart; “Gone,” featuring Leroy Sanchez, reached No. 30 (Oct. 24) -- and two new songs arrive upon the set’s release -- “Alpha Omega” (No. 46) and “Bad Mother F*cker” featuring Kid Rock (No. 31).
The release of General Admission spurs a No. 11 debut for MGK on the Billboard Artist 100 chart, which ranks the week’s most popular artists across all genres.
