Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Same Love (ft. Mary Lambert)
Same Love is my favorite song off of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s new album The Heist. It’s truly outstanding for a few different reasons. First of all, Same Love is one of the first pro gay rights hip-hop songs ever. Murs’s pro gay rights song Animal Style came out a couple months earlier, but the way he portrays his message is completely different, so for this reason Same Love is an entirely unique entity within the hip-hop universe. Also, Mary Lambert is lesbian, so the strong emotional assertions she sings for the chorus are that much more beautiful and potent. Lastly, just like the rest of the album, Ryan Lewis’s production is absolutely phenomenal. The soft angelic instrumental makes Macklemore’s lyrics that much more defined and pronounced. If you enjoy this song, you should check out my other favorite Macklemore songs, which include Thrift Shop (ft. Wanz), Otherside, Wings, Church (ft. Geologic), and The Club.
The MUSIC VIDEO for Same Love is also really incredible and touching.
