Macklemore’s ‘Thrift Shop’ Goes Platinum

Put on your secondhand high waisted shorts and your grandpa sweater, because Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ recent success calls for a celebration.

Their single ‘Thrift Shop’ from their debut album The Heist has continued to be the talk of the town by climbing the iTunes and Billboard charts. “Thrift Shop” has reached platinum level, which means at least 1 million singles have been sold. 

Here’s what Ryan said on Instagram

“Today was crazy. I woke up to find out Thrift Shop went Platinum. I’m grateful and in disbelief how much our fans have gone above and beyond, spreading our music and supporting us since the beginning. Going platinum as an independent artist simply doesn’t happen unless your fans make it happen, and I’m constantly reminded how blessed we are to have the fans we do. I was surprised today with a nice card, some champagne and a good bottle of whiskey (my favorite) reminding me to just stop and celebrate for a second. My glass is raised #SFG.”

Congratulations to this dynamic duo!
