With only a week to go before the October 9th release of their album The Heist, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis just released the visuals to "Same Love", featuring Mary Lambert. In writing "Same Love", Macklemore drew from his experiences growing up with gay uncles, as well as the contrasting experience of growing up in the Catholic church and the hip-hop community, which oftentimes reinforce a very heteronormative view of society. Macklemore also wrote a fairly lengthy article about the meaning behind the song, which you can read here. Check out the visuals to "Same Love" below.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis just dropped the visuals to their latest single, "Thrift Shop", off their upcoming album The Heist (dropping October 9th). I can't front, this kinda makes me want to hit up Value Village right now. Check out the visuals to "Thrift Shop" below. If you're feeling it, you can cop the track on iTunes.
