Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have reunited after going on hiatus in 2017, and their new song, Next Year, continues where the pair last left off.
The pair first started working together in 2008, and they released two albums together; 2012's The Heist and 2016's This Unruly Mess I've Made. In the years since going on hiatus, Ryan's worked with the likes of Kesha and Hobo Johnson, while Macklemore released his second album, Gemini.
The pair announced their reunion with a skit that features the pair seeing each other at a corner store, after "three years of not talking". The skit features the pair trying to one-up each other, including Macklemore asking if he's working with "any other white rappers".
Next Year is a celebration of what's next for the world and is a reminder that there are brighter days ahead. It features US singer Windser singing the hook, and it's reminiscent of the upbeat tracks that made the pair's album The Heist such a global success. Ryan's production and Macklemore's bars suit each other perfectly, and it's clear that they haven't missed a beat since reuniting.
Check out Next Year below, and stay tuned for more music in the near future. We're excited for what the future holds for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis - who knows what Next Year is going to look like?
