Macklemore and Lewis’ single “Thrift Shop” reached number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 this year, selling more than 2.2 million copies. This was the first time since 1994 that a song reached #1 on the Hot 100 chart without the support of a major record label. Their second single, “Can’t Hold Us”, also peaked at number one on the Hot 100 Chart. This made Macklemore and Lewis the first duo in history to have their first two singles both reach number 1.
The duo’s debut studio album, The Heist, was released in October of last year, and reached number 2 on the US Billboard 200 chart. ”The Heist” tour began last fall to support their debut album.
Most recently, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed their hit song “Same Love” live at the MTV VMAs, featuring Mary Lambert and Jennifer Hudson.
