Weekend Awesome – Macklemore, Mopeds and a Royal Enfield Chariot

Grammy Award winners Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have released a brand new track with motorcycle-themed lyrics and video called “Downtown.” The musical duo, best known for chart-topping songs “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us” are joined by hip hop legends Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, Grandmaster Caz and Foxy Shazam lead singer Eric Nally on the new track.

The song starts with Macklemore getting a simple moped and then just downright owning the streets. Before long, he’s riding a moose-headed cruiser before meeting up with a parade of two-wheelers centered around Nally riding a chariot of Royal Enfields, channeling Freddie Mercury while singing:

She has her arms around your waist
With a balance that could keep us safe
Have you ever felt the warm embrace
Of the leather seat between your legs
