After debuting the mellow introspective single “Growing Up (Sloane’s Song),” Macklemore and Ryan Lewis pick up the tempo for a true comeback single. The Seattle duo premiered their new single earlier today via iHeartRadio.
“Downtown” features a groovy throwback sound. It reminds me of an old school record from the early days of hip-hop. The accompanying visual features a similar vintage vibe.
The Jason Koenig-directed visual is “Uptown Funk” meets “Thrift Shop.” Truthfully, it’s a little random and ridiculous but a fun entertaining watch. Check out the clip below which features a cameo from former Seattle Mariner Ken Griffey, Jr.
