Machine Gun Kelly’s Tickets to My Downfall has landed him his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Billboard reports that Tickets to My Downfall earned 126,000 equivalent album units in its first week, with 60,000 coming from streaming equivalent units, 63,000 from pure album sales, and 3,000 from track equivalent album units. Described as a "pop-punk" project, Downfall is the first rock album to finish atp the Billboard 200 since Tool's Fear Inoculum did in 2019. 

Now, all five of MGK’s studio albums have reached the top 10 of the Billboard 200, including 2012’s Lace Up, 2015’s General Admission; 2017’s Bloom, and 2019’s Hotel Diablo.

Two singles from Nectar, “Sanctuary” and “Run” debuted on the Billboard Hot 100—and Joji’s last album, Ballads 1 debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in 2018.

Ballads 1 also debuted at No. 1 on the top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, making Joji the first Asian-born artist to top the list.
