On January 3, 2015 Macklemore, critically acclaimed hip hop artists with chart toppers like Thrift Shop and Same Love put out this video on Ryan Lewis’ youtube:
Now, in August we’ve finally learned that Macklemore is in fact a father to a little girl born in May. With the help of Ed Sheeran (who has been in a particularly giving mood lately helping many famous friends and fans with proposals over the last few months) Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have released Growing Up (Sloane’s Song).
In a post on his instagram Macklemore said “and if you’re wondering… our daughter, Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty was born two months ago on May 29th. There is nothing like the joy and happiness that comes from bringing a baby into this universe. She has filled my heart in ways that I never knew were possible. She is the love of my life. This song is for her.” Signed simply, Ben- his given name.
The track released, under much anticipation and for free by Sheeran and the duo of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, on August 5 had fans of both artists buzzing. Ed Sheeran takes the chorus on the track which Macklemore describes as, “half of it is advice about growing up. The other half is trying to figure out how to grow up myself.” All in all it’s a beautiful track and the perfect way to welcome super duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis back to the spotlight and has gotten all of us excited for his anticipated, unnamed new album!
