More on Machine Gun Kelly
Machine Gun Kelly, Barker and YUNGBLUD made their long-awaited reunion on “body bag” Tuesday evening. Appearing on the extended version, Tickets To My Downfall (SOLD OUT Deluxe), Kells surprised dropped the collab just days after the album.
In addition to blackbear, MGK also tapped Trippie Redd and iann dior again for new collaborations. He also finally teamed up with Halsey on “forget me too,” which already has a music video in the works.
Shortly after confirming the album would be in the pop-punk realm, Kells told Zane Lowe that YUNGBLUD, who first joined MGK and Barker on the now BBMAs-nominated “I Think I’m OKAY,” would be among the previously mentioned collaborators with hopes to get Bert McCracken from the Used.
MGK made that McCracken collab a reality in January and teased details on what to expect with YUNGBLUD on the Juice WRLD-inspired “body bag” in March. However, just ahead of the tracklist reveal in September, MGK shared that neither of the collabs with McCracken or YUNGBLUD would be appearing on the album but rather “something special” later.
Then, on Monday, MGK began teasing a deluxe edition of the album on the way. Just over 24 hours later, the musician shared a behind-the-scenes video for “drunk face” followed by the deluxe version. With it, fans finally got to hear the long-awaited YUNGBLUD and McCracken collab, “body bag.” With a subtle nod to a Fall Out Boy classic, you can check it out here.
