According to Chart Data which tracks song charting statuses, the song’s debut made it all the way to the top spot.

It took the crowning spot from the Rolling Stones while the twenty one pilots track sits comfortably behind.

Machine Gun Kelly made a fairly simple post about the achievement which you can see below.

Just months after dropping his incredibly raw fourth record Hotel Diablo, Machine Gun Kelly gifted fans with “why are you here.” Following that, he opened up more on the then untitled pop-punk project, revealing that along with Barker, he was working with YUNGBLUD, blackbearTrippie Redd and Young Thug.

Machine Gun Kelly also said Attila’s Fronz and the Used’s Bert McCracken were on his collab wish list, the latter of which he collabed with in January. MGK is also crediting “why are you here” for inspiring him to explore “all singing [and] all live instruments” in his music.

Then, he ended up revealing the album name in mid-January. MGK followed it by adding another album-related tattoo and teasing what to expect. After completing studio work in late February, he played a new song expected to be from the album during a livestream.

Then, MGK put his attention on the new era and this single, announcing it was coming.
