Microsoft Outlook Commercial – What’s the Song?
The new Microsoft Outlook commercial promises innovative email software that "lets you share, organize and stay up-to-date like never before.” What’s the song in the ad?
The catchy tune is ‘Can’t Hold Us’ by Seattle alt-hip-hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, from their album ‘The Heist,’ which dropped last August. The single, featuring soul singer Ray Dalton, peaked at No. 65 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performed the infectious, upbeat track on both ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ and ‘Saturday Night Live.’ They also appeared on ‘Ellen’ back in January and delivered an energized live version of their other smash hit Thrift Shop.’
The group has a string of tour dates lined up and are set to play numerous upcoming festivals, including the Roots Picnic, Grove Music Festival, Bonnaroo, Hangout Music Fest, Camp Bisco, Squamish Valley Music Festival, Paid Dues Festival, Free Press Summer Fest, Sasquatch! and Bottle Rock. Check out their official website for the full itinerary.
