Macklemore’s Glorious is just that! – Friday Jam

I’m a big Macklemore fan. I don’t know if it’s the fact that we both have red hair or that he’s Irish (American). But, from the first time I heard “Irish Celebration,” it’s been a love affair. His first album is was an absolutely firestorm, from start to finish. Every song on that album could have been a single. His follow up sophomore album was a conscious decision to avoid a pop hit and showcase his hip hop fundamentals. The album was socially conscious, and minus the song about the scooters, it didn’t get much main stream attention.

You know I’m back like I never left
Another sprint, another step
Another day, another breath
Been chasing dreams, but I never slept
I got a new attitude and a lease on life
And some peace of mind

“Glorious” is amazing… it’s glorious, if you will. World, I present you Skylar Grey. She KILLS the chorus on this song.

Macklemore always has bars. I think that gets overlooked by his style and flow. But, I’m just so happy he didn’t come out with a trap song. That would be an easy way to cash in right now. He’s a big name. Put out a song that sounds like Migos and cash a check. He stayed true. I’m stoked.

You know I’m a sports guy, but i’m THE music guy.

So, turn up your radio and enjoy your ride home from work. Blast this song. You’ll feel glorious, glorious. 

My grandma smiling down on me like woo, that boy got bars

Okay, okay, yes I do I said amen and hallelujah, let me testify too

Another morning, a morning, don’t let self get in my way

I got my breath, I got my faith and I remember why I came

Macklemore’s officially back with Glorious.

P.S. He never went anywhere.
