Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Can’t Hold Us” Certified Platinum

It looks like Seattle duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have scored a platinum plaque with their second straight single.

RapRadar reports that the XXL Freshman Class of 2012 alum’s latest single “Can’t Hold Us” featuring Ray Dalton has been certified platinum by the RIAA. “Can’t Hold Us” is steadily climbing Billboard’s Digital Singles chart, even overtaking the pair’s “Thrift Shop” to reach the #2 spot.

This marks the second single from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ recent debut The Heist to break the million mark, with “Thrift Shop” having been certified five-times platinum.

The song has made waves outside of its commercial success, as well. Recently, the duo released an acclaimed music video to accompany the song, and even performed the song at the MTV Movie Awards.
