Multi-Diamond-certified, Grammy Award-winning artist Macklemore has paired up with American record producer DJ Premier for his latest offering, “Heroes,” the fourth track to be revealed from his anticipated studio album, “Ben,” scheduled for global release on March 3.
Macklemore has also announced his first leg of “The Ben Tour” will start April 3 in Dublin, making stops across Europe and the U.K. with special guests Tones And I and CHARLIEONNAFRIDAY. For a full list of dates and more information, go to https://macklemore.com.
Last year saw the 10-year anniversary since the release of “The Heist.” The RIAA organization officially certified “Can’t Hold Us” Diamond and honored Macklemore & Ryan Lewis as one of the most successful duos of the last 65 years of RIAA Gold and Platinum history. Diamond certifications make up less than 1% of RIAA’s Gold and Platinum program. These are awarded for 10 million sales and streaming equivalents earned in the U.S. alone, with only 19 acts having more than one Diamond single in RIAA history. “Can’t Hold Us,” ft. Ray Dalton, marks their second Diamond single award (following 2015’s “Thrift Shop” ft. Wanz) from the same album, an incredibly rare accomplishment.
