Track lifted from latest album 'This Unruly Mess I've Made'
Idris Elba appears in the latest music video from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
The British actor features on the track ‘Dance Off’, lifted from the rap duo’s recent album ‘This Unruly Mess I’ve Made’.
In the clip, Elba lays down the challenge of a dance contest. “I challenge you to a dance off/Hands off, no trash talk, no back walk/On the black top, just me, you, that’s all/No cat calls, no tag teams, no mascots,” he says at the start.
Watch the video, directed by Ryan Lewis and Jason Koenig, below.
Macklemore visited Barack Obama at the White House over the weekend (14 May) to discuss opioid addiction in the US president’s Weekly Address.
Obama introduced Macklemore as his “special guest” and goes on to explain that “for those of you who don’t share the same love for hip-hop that I do” Macklemore is a Grammy-winning artist.
“He’s also an advocate who’s giving voice to a disease that we all too often just whisper about a disease called addiction,” Obama continued.
Macklemore, dressed in a suit and tie, said: “I take this personally. I have abused prescription drugs and I have battled with addiction. If I hadn’t of got the help that I needed when I needed it, I definitely would not be here today. I want to help others facing the same challenges that I did.”
