Macklemore & Lewis Make Chart History

Facebook.com/Macklemore2013 has been quite a year for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.  Following the success of "Thrift Shop," the duo has now scored a second #1 hit, and made chart history in the process.

Billboard reports that with "Can't Hold Us" topping the Hot 100, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis become the first duo in history ever to send their first two singles to #1.  And they're the first act overall -- solo, group or duo -- to hit #1 with their first two singles since Lady Gaga did it back in 2009.

Both "Thrift Shop" and "Can't Hold Us" are from the duo's debut album The Heist.  It debuted at #2 when it was first released back in October.
