Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ ‘Thrift Shop’ Certified Four Times Platinum

By Henna Kathiya

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ hit single “Thrift Shop” has been buzzing for quite some time so it’s no surprise that the upbeat song has officially gone four times Platinum.

After spending seven straight weeks being #1 on Billboard’s Digital Chart, the duo from Seattle is on their way to taking down Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” Besides its’ catchy hook, the video also helped the song gain popularity with almost 4 million views in one month. Not to mention there are about 357,000 downloads sold according to Billboard. Their album The Heist came in at #2 when it debuted back in October.

There’s no denying that this duo has got talent but no one would’ve thought that this indie hip-hop group would ever take off like they did.
