Macklemore pulls a Bruno Mars with new single, ‘Downtown’
Macklemore has dropped a new track with Ryan Lewis titled ‘Downtown’ and the funky tune is clearly his best attempt at emulating the smash success Bruno Mars found with ‘Uptown Funk’.

As he raps about getting a moped - a la 'Thrift Shop' - we can't help but feel like something’s missing. Although we’re sure the track is going to get major rotation on radio, it’s as if the guys took the easy way out and two steps back, rather than building on their previous success and exploring new avenues for their talent.

Listen to it below and let us know what you think! 

Macklemore will be performing ‘Downtown’ live at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday.
