    Macklemore X Ryan Lewis - Can't Hold Us Feat. Ray Dalton by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

    Our man Macklemore made another appearance on XXL's website, this time with his and Ryan Lewis' new single "Can't Hold Us". The song's whining synth and choral backing reminds of Lewis' collaborative record with Rhode Island MC Symmetry. The Lewis/Symmetry project was a stellar, left-of-center dance-hop release, in part because Symm has the ability to sing, and paints his versatility all over the disk. Not sure this kind of heavy dance instrumental works as well with Mack unless it's on a track like "And We Danced".

    I've still got it in my head that Mack's voice sounds best over sample-heavy production, like that that was favored on his 2005 debut The Language of My World (see below). What do y'all think?
