The RIAA organization also honored Macklemore & Ryan Lewisas one of the most successful duos of the last 65 years of RIAA Gold & Platinum historyand officially certified‘Can’t Hold Us’DIAMOND. Speaking on single ‘FAITHFUL’and the news of this album, BEN, Macklemore shared:“I wrote FAITHFUL after a 2020 relapse that brought me back to a familiar darkness Inaively thought I had escaped.It’s a personal song for me, reflecting on my struggles with addiction. As long as I can remember, I've wanted to be clean, and yet the disease I have is always present, it always follows me. The record explores the presence of addiction in every facet of my life, and how pervasive and insidious it can be. I love what Choppa did with his verse.He brought the song into his world, writing fromthe perspective of a supportive friend and showing up in a desperate time.I thought the song would push him out of his comfort zone, but honestly he sounded right at home in the pocket and brought a whole new concept to the record.It’s been refreshingspending some time with him.I’m hella impressed not only by his pen, but his perspective on life and quest for spiritual growth."
