Macklemore Releases Brand New Christmas Song and Video
Seattle's rapping superstar Macklemore has just released a brand new Christmas song and video and may just be one of our favorite Christmas songs of all time.
Here's what Macklemore says about himself and this song:
At some point every holiday season, while watching Home Alone and drinking hot chocolate, the same idea hits me. “You are the grown rap version of Kevin McCallister. Now act like it and make a Christmas song." So I did. And most people are calling it “The 2nd best Christmas song behind "Jingle Bell Rock" and right before "Silent Night"... and waaaayyy better than "Little Drummer Boy”. While this might be true, it was important for me to make a visual that backed up this claim. So I did. And it’s crazy. It’s like Jurassic Park in the snow without the budget for dinosaurs. But the video doesn’t even need them. It has the Holiday spirit in every frame. The true purpose and meaning of Christmas. To give, to celebrate and to take back that sweater and end up with store credit at Macy’s. We must not forget the magic and that in the end its all about giving. You’re welcome.
You'll notice many Washington ism's like the can of Dutch Bros Coffee and the winter scene was filmed at Mission Ridge Ski resort!
The video was released less than 24 hours ago and already has nearly 150,000 views!
