The Awesome Running Playlist – Track 9

Track 9 – Can’t Hold Us – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Ray Dalton (2012)

Here’s a party anthem! If you ever need a party to go off, drop this track. It also gets you flying on your run.

From American hip hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis debut studio album The Heist that also contains the classic Thrift Shop, it’s the anthem, Can’t Hold Us.

The pianos and vocals drop from the very start followed by the handclaps, foot stomps and into Macklemore’s verse. The song then breaks down and builds with just the pianos and Ray Dalton’s uplifting chorus, with the motivational lyrics “this is the moment” and “(the ceiling) can’t hold us”

Maybe it’s not the ceiling we are worried about and more how this joyous mix of rap, gospel and disco will have us chipping alone nicely whilst throwing down some raising the roof dance moves!

The official version is 6 minutes long and take 45 second for the track to kick in, so i have included the radio edit here which is shorter and a bit punchier.

Check your roof is structurally sound before dropping Track 9. It’s a belter from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Can’t Hold Us.
