I'm not crazy about the song, but I respect Macklemore's hustle over the last couple years. I'm interested to see if people give his next single any love and/or what the effect of his success will be on similar rappers

Although the rest of the album is better, and this is just a fun song, it'll help people to get into his other songs.

Awesome for them.

Interesting. Can't Hold Us is probably the most similar to Thrift Shop (both are pretty much just good natured fun songs that lack the deeper meaning of the stuff like Starting Over or Wing$ that pack a deeper punch). So it probably has the best shot at being another hit, but at the same time I feel like you can listen to those two songs and completely miss a large part of what Macklemore is really about.

I personally would've gone with Make The Money. That at least has a better message, while remaining hit ready. It'll probably be the third one if they choose to have a third single.
