Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Take “Thrift Shop” to the Top of the Charts

macklemore_0It’s been quite awhile since a bona-fide rap song hit # 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and I’m pretty sure none of them have been about shopping for discount clothes. However, this week Macklemore & Ryan Lewis take their ode to the bargain basement “Thrift Shop” straight to the top, dethroning Bruno Mars after 6 weeks in the pole position. We’ll see how long this hysterical and catchy record reigns as it will have to fight off Justin Timberlake’s latest “Suit & Tie” which charges up from # 84 to # 4 in its first full week of release and becomes his 12th top ten solo hit on the Hot 100.
