Macklemore, Ryan Lewis & Leon Bridges Debut “Kevin” At 2015 AMAs

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis debut new song, “Kevin,” with Leon Bridges at the AMAs.

Tonight, at the 2015 American Music Awards, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performed a brand new track, “Kevin,” that features soul/gospel artist Leon Bridges. The song gives an account of a friend who fell victim to addiction, providing commentary on the rampant overmedication in society. “Doctor please, give me a dose of the American Dream,” Bridges sings on the hook.

The track is the Seattle duo’s first since August’s “Downtown,” which featured a few hip-hop legends. Weeks before, they dropped a new collaboration with Ed Sheeran, their first release since their debut album, The Heist. “Thrift Shop,” taken from The Heist, recently reached diamond status — selling a cool 10,000,000 copies.
