Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis featuring Ray Dalton
The Heist is one of my favorite albums of this year to date. New sounds with flares of something older and more familiar, The Heist marks one of the best hip hop collaborations in quite some time. Every song delivers something that makes it separately amazing but even more collectively brilliant on this album. Noteworthy: The third track “Trift Shop” starts off with an old school intro and transitions quickly to modern-day sound with the first hard-hitting beat. “Thin Line” emphasizes smooth vocal flow and delivery. And the piano keys on “Same Love” remind me how much I love musical fusions. Guest vocals from Ray Dalton and Allen Stone make up my two favorite tracks (“Can’t Hold Us” and “Neon Cathedral” respectively), but the entire album is a must-listen.
I could go on. But I won’t because I’d be wasting time that you could be using to listen to this.
