The viral hit from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis has become a hit in legal music purchases too.

The duo from Seattle (well Macklemore is from Seattle at least) came onto the scene a few years ago, but just several months ago did the duo actually grab attention outside of the Northwestern with the hit ‘Thrift Shop.’

I’ve always personally liked the song, but can totally understand if it’s overplaying has caused you to turn away from the song, or just dislike it because of it’s popularity. Different strokes for different folks!

Do you believe that YouTube holds more talent that we are not seeing in the mainstream, or is Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s fame sort of a ‘once in a blue moon’ type of fame?

Let me know in the comments.
