Seattle’s new favorite son is blowing up bigger than we expected.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘ single “Can’t Hold Us” (featuring Ray Dalton) has reached another milestone: one million copies (said best if in the voice of Dr. Evil). That means the rapper-producer duo’s third single from their album The Heist has been certified platinum.

The Seattle hip-hop icon immediately took to Twitter to thank fans, saying that they have made the song the success it is.

In addition to the recent landmark, the track sits at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.  The song has been on Billboard’s songs chart for the past eleven weeks.  “Can’t Hold Us” is also currently number one on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
