Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ ‘Thrift Shop’ Breaks Chart Record


(AllHipHop News) Sorry DJ Khaled, but you’re no longer the best. At least not when it comes to holding the record for the longest running #1 rap single on Billboard Magazine’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. That distinction now belongs to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis after their mega-hit “Thrift Shop” topped the chart for the 12th consecutive week.

Previously, Khaled’s 2011 summer anthem “I’m On One” featuring Drake, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne held the title with 11 straight weeks in the top spot.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis next hurdle is passing Mary J. Blige’s all time record of 15 weeks at number one on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart. Blige achieved that accomplishment in 2006 with her Grammy winning song “Be Without You” from The Breakthrough album.

“Thrift Shop” is also number one on the Hot 100 for the 6th nonconsecutive week. The fifth single from 2012’s The Heist album has sold over 5 million copies to date. The Seattle duo’s “Can’t Hold Us” (which was originally released as a single prior to “Thrift Shop”) is also creeping up the R&B/Hip-Hop chart currently sitting at #5.

The rest of the Top 10 R&B/Hip-Hop songs for the April 13 publication of Billboard are Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” (2), Drake’s “Started From The Bottom” (3), Lil Wayne’s “Love Me” (4),  Rihanna’s “Pour It Up” (6), A$AP Rocky’s “F*ckin Problems” (7), Wale’s “Bad” (8), Ace Hood’s “Bugatti” (9), and Alicia Key’s “Girl On Fire” (10).

    Not really feeling that Thrift shop track due to its commercial sound, but dude is def original and a breathe of fresh air for hip hop. Of course I do understand every artist needs at least one commercial track. Now that Cant Hold Us track is dope.

    • MrNoName2K

  • WillVetterGoodin

    Don’t like that “song” at all. Sounds like a very generic rip off of something Timbo did. I guess they did get their style from a thrift shop. SMH.

  • MrNoName2K

    I thought that “Thrift Shop” song was wack from the get go…Maclemore lol no go

  • I’ve listened to all the songs listed on that list but the only one that warranted repeat listens was Wale – Bad. The rest are just something I hear if I chose to listen to the radio that day.

  • Raheem Classick

    It’s basically A late 80’s early 90’s Hip Hop track.

    I don’t like rap, but I like this. I think it’s my poor white trash days of youth at the 2nd hand store. “Hey, I can identify with that…”
