Thought you’d seen the last of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis? Well, think again. After the chart-topping success of the single, “Thrift Shop”, the duo are back on top of the Digital Songs chart with “Can’t Hold Us.”

Billboard reports the band’s latest single, “Can’t Hold Us,” received a 25 percent boost in Top 40 airplay, which led to a surge on the Pop Songs chart; sales-wise, it’s at Number One on the Digital Songs chart for a second straight week after leapfrogging Pink, selling 262,000 copies.

The song is currently #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and the act is the first duo to take its first two singles to No. 1 in the Hot 100’s almost-55-year history.

The video for “Can’t Hold Us” is a globe-trotting adventure that eventually leads to some beautiful shots of Seattle.
