A whole lot of people bought tickets to Machine Gun Kelly‘s Downfall.

The rapper-turned-rocker’s 2020 punk-influenced album Tickets to My Downfall has been certified Platinum by the RIAA. It’s the first MGK record to achieve that feat, which recognizes one million units certified.

“As of today, Tickets to My Downfall is officially our first album to go platinum,” Kelly tweeted Wednesday evening.

The news comes at a fitting time, as Kelly is launching a U.S. headlining tour in support of Tickets to My Downfall Thursday in Minneapolis.

Meanwhile, Kelly just premiered a brand-new song, “Papercuts,” in August. He’s performing the tune alongside his Tickets to My Downfall producer Travis Barker at this Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards.

“Papercuts” is the lead single off the upcoming Machine Gun Kelly album Born with Horns, which will also be produced by Barker.
