Macklemore remains atop Billboard charts

Seattle's Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have continued their hold on the top of the Billboard Hot 100, with "Can't Hold Us" featuring Ray Dalton remaining atop the charts for a second straight week.

The song is also holding strong atop the Digital Songs chart with another 241,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's also the top subscription services-based on-demand song for the fourth week in a row.

"Can't Hold Us" is the second No. 1 hit from the duo's debut album "The Heist." "Thrift Shop" featuring Wanz held the top spot for six weeks and is still at No. 7 on the Hot 100. The song has sold over 6 million downloads, just the 20th song to crack 3 million downloads sold since SoundScan began tracking digital sales about a decade ago, Billboard reports.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis return to their home turf after non-stop touring for a headline set at the Sasquatch Festival at the Gorge next Friday May 24.
