It’s been on the Billboard Hot 100 for 21 weeks now. It held the number 1 spot for four weeks in a row, only to be bumped to number 2 for the past couple of weeks by “Harlem Shake” – the latest meme to sweep the nation. Macklemore & Ryan‘s “Thrift Shop” is a true success for the duo, who independently produced their album “The Heist” on which it appears. “Thrift Shop” has sold over 3 million downloads since the release in October 2012, with over 336,000 albums sold.
Macklemore & Producer Ryan Lewis appeared on Saturday Night Live on March 3. This marks their first performance on SNL, perhaps having something to do with their successful musical guest spot on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
