In addition to hitting number one on the Billboard 200, Machine Gun Kelly‘s Mainstream Sellout has been topping the charts around the world, too.

In a tweet Wednesday, the “Bloody Valentine” rocker celebrated Mainstream Sellout‘s number-one debut in Canada and Australia.

“Insaaaanee!!!” MGK wrote. “Thank you Australia for getting us our first #1 out there and a consecutive #1 in Canada.”

Mainstream Sellout also gave Kelly his highest-charting album in the U.K., where it debuted at number two.

“A major thank you to our U.K. fans for doubling the sales/streams of what the last album did and getting us our highest debut there yet,” Kelly wrote.

Mainstream Sellout, which was released March 25, is MGK’s second-straight number-one album in the U.S., following 2020’s Tickets to My Downfall. It’s the first rock album to debut atop the Billboard 200 since AC/DC’s Power Up in November 2020.

Machine Gun Kelly will launch an arena tour in support of Mainstream Sellout in June. The bill also features artists including Avril Lavigne, Travis Barker and WILLOW on select dates.
