It’s a hit!

That’s all I can say about this Macklemore and Kesha bop. It’s such a catchy song and I feel like it is relatable as well.

Let’s be clear, I am not all that old but even looking back at high school, I miss that magic. The magic of talking to your friends until midnight and then racing to get home in time for curfew. Things like that make you think.

I love the lyrics, I love the beat, Kesha sounds incredible. There’s nothing to dislike!

Let me know what you think!

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Release Video For ‘Brad Pitt’s Cousin’

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis photographed at Jack Studio in New York City on Feb. 9, 2016.

So I am pretty sure that Macklemore and Brad Pitt aren’t actually related but I am also not positive about that statement. I googled it and could only find this song so I am going to guess they aren’t. If they were, my head would probably explode.

Now Ryan Lewis & Macklemore’s first song, ‘Downtown’, I absolutely hated it. This one though? This one I think that I can get behind.

I mean the music video is awesome, the sound is really good. It is just a fun song to try and sing along to and most likely drunk white girl dance to.

Bravo Macklemore, bravo.

Let’s Be Honest No One Knows Who Ryan Lewis Is

This video is absolutely brilliant right? I mean everyone hears Macklemore and Ryan Lewis but in reality they have no idea who Ryan Lewis is. Is he just a hype man? Is he a producer? No one knows! Jimmy Fallon knows that this is pure comedy gold though. What a simple yet brilliant idea. Why not have Ryan Lewis just roam New York City and ask people what they think about him. No one even bats an eye.

How about that girl who said he was a solid C+ then couldn’t even identify him from the picture he was holding up of himself. That was perfect.

Jimmy Fallon you are the king of late night and Ryan Lewis, I am still not sure what you do, even after this video.

Wait, Is Macklemore Attractive?

ImageLast night I was watching the Grammy’s like most of the world and of course Macklemore was one of the biggest winners of the night, he also married a bunch of people. Well no, Queen Latifah married a bunch of people but he brought the soundtrack to the wedding. Anyway, I had one question mind the entire time I saw him, am I attracted to him?

Now normally I don’t find gingers very attractive, I also normally don’t find white rappers attractive, if they aren’t Eminem I just tend to laugh at them. Mac Miller is the finest example of that. I also usually like guys with darker features, dark hair, dark eyes, you are my type! So looking at Macklemore the only thing that he has that I would normally go for is a nice jawline, that jawline could cut a damn rock!

Macklemore also has a really weird speaking voice, it is kind of raspy and weird, right? That just makes me like him more! It means that when he sings he gives it all that he has, or he was just born with a voice like that. After seeing him about three hours on my screen though I came to the solid conclusion that Macklemore is in fact good looking and talented.

Congrats on the certified hotness level Macklemore, I hope that you continue to make party music and don’t take yourself too seriously.

Also, this song is straight fire! Enjoy!
