Macklemore releases ‘Heroes’

Song is latest track from Ben

Multi-Diamond certified, Grammy Award winning artist Macklemore has paired up with legendary American record producer DJ Premier for his latest offering. “Heroes” is the fourth track to be revealed from his highly anticipated studio album, Ben, scheduled for global release on March 3rd.

Macklemore has also announced his first leg of The Ben Tour will start April, 3rd in Dublin, making stops across Europe and the UK with special guests Tones And I and CharlieOnAFriday.

Last year saw the 10 year anniversary since the release of The Heist. The RIAA officially certified “Can’t Hold Us” Diamond and honored Macklemore & Ryan Lewis as one of the most successful duos of the last 65 years of RIAA Gold & Platinum history. Diamond certifications make up less than one percent of RIAA’s Gold & Platinum program. These are awarded for 10 million sales and streaming equivalents earned in the United States alone with only 19 acts having more than one Diamond single in RIAA history. “Can’t Hold Us” featuring Ray Dalton marks their second Diamond Single Award, following 2015’s “Thrift Shop” featuring Wanz from the same album, an incredibly rare accomplishment.

This past year, Macklemore released “Chant” featuring Tones and I, “Maniac” featuring Windser, and “Faithful” featuring NLE Choppa, each from his larger body of work titled Ben.
