Update: A video for Downtown has been released, you can check it out below!
When Macklemore and Ryan Lewis hit the stage at Sunday’s MTV VMAs, they’re going to be performing their brand-new track Downtown. The song premiered today and after only one listen we can say one thing for sure: Sunday night is going to be fun.
Downtown is a feel-good funk anthem with a focus on mopeds. That’s right, mopeds. Let’s not forget, these are the two guys who made thrift stores cool.
The new track, which will be a part of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ upcoming album, features a who’s who of hip-hop heavyweights from the 80s and 90s. Grandmaster Caz, Kool Moe Dee, Melle Mel, and Eric Nally all collaborated with the duo on their new single, which covers everything from Bugattis to Blackstreet.
Don’t miss Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performing Downtown at Sunday’s MTV VMAs, along with performances from Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, The Weeknd, Tori Kelly, Twenty One Pilots with A$AP Rocky, and Pharrell. Watch Miley Cyrus host the 2015 VMAs starting at 8E/5P on MTV and Much.
