Macklemore & Ryan Lewis: 'Can't Hold Us' - Single review

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis 'Can't Hold Us' single artwork.
"Labels out here/ Nah they can't tell me nothing/ We give that to the people/ Spread it across the country," Macklemore declares on his new single. It's a bold statement considering it was recorded and originally released in 2011 before his rise to international fame, but it now holds more poignancy than ever following the behemoth that is 'Thrift Shop'. We've witnessed a decade of being an independent artist finally paying off, but there's a whole lot more to come yet.

Unsurprisingly, the Seattle rapper is in the mood for celebrating and reflecting on his success on his latest single. "Bad moon walking, this here is our party, my posse's been on Broadway/ And we did it our way," he adds over an infectious, soul-soaked piano line and beats more vibrant than Rio de Janeiro's finest carnival floats. The final result is quite possibly this summer's anthem, but almost certainly another worldwide hit for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
