Macklemore and Ryan Lewis To Hit Manila This March!

Words by Mafe Bongalon

March just got hotter as 4-time Grammy award winner Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will take the Philippine stage for the first time!

Rapper Macklemore and Ryan Lewis produced their independent album “The Heist” in 2012 which went straight to number 2 on the US Billboard 200 charts! The two started making awesome collaborations five years ago but the release of their first single “Thrift Shop” from their album really made a buzz for the duo. The song reached number 1 on the US Billboards 100 and it was the first time since 1994 for a song not backed up by a major label to get the number one spot. Both Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are proud to have reached this success independently producing their independent album “The Heist”. The second single “Can’t hold US” also reached number 1 on the US 100 Billboard charts making them the first duo to get 2 singles on the top spot. But it did not end there, hit after hit, they were making a name for themselves!

Another hit for the pair was their single "Same Love", where Macklemore aired his support for the LGBT community and same sex marriage. Their recent performance at the Grammys featuring Mary Lambert with Madonna received a thundering standing ovation. It also brought out a lot of emotions as Queen Latifah officiates the Marriage of 33 couples mostly with the same sex. They made history by telling the whole world about the importance of equality through their breath taking performance!
