Same Love

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' song "Same Love" was a mega hit song off of their debut 2012 album The Heist. The song focuses on hot issues in the LGBT community and the right for same-sex couples to marry. The song was nominated for Song of the Year at the Grammy Awards, and won the MTV Video Award for Best Video with a Message. Along with the message of marriage equality, Macklemore also wrote the song out of his own frustration with the hip hop community's perceived position on homosexuality.
