HAPPY FRIDAY! CHECK OUT MACKLEMORE’S VIDEO FOR DOWNTOWN!
Yesterday, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis premiered their new single “Downtown” yesterday on the POWER MORNING SHOW and its official music video ahead of the song’s first live performance at this Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards. TIME writes that the track “feels like three songs in one–there’s a sample of Canadian new wavers Men Without Hats, some ’80s arena-rock vibes and what sounds like a Sugarhill Gang tribute–which will probably make for a splashy debut performance at this weekend’s VMAs.
“Downtown” is Macklemore’s first new music since he released his Ed Sheeran collaboration “Growing Up (Sloane’s Song),” about his newborn daughter, earlier this month.
