Macklemore made a sweet treat for this grandmother in his new music video for “Glorious” featuring Skylar Grey.
The music video starts off with rapper visiting his grandmother and promising her anything she wanted for her birthday. From there, the song begins and we get to see hoe the ‘old woman’ really wants to live. We the pair egging a house, playing games and grandma and the girls even get a surprise lap dance. The video ends with a bit of a tear jerker as the two drive to a lake and just hold hands, enjoying the scenery.
The lyrics are an inspirational story of overcoming hardship and giving back to those who mean something to you. The rapper speaks to what he has achieved and how his life has been changed by those achievements. He also speak of getting a second chance to make things better for himself and others.
“I feel glorious, glorious/Got a chance to start again/I was born for this, born for this/It’s who I am, how could I forget/I made it through the darkest part of the night/And now I see the sun rise/Now I feel glorious, glorious/I feel glorious, glorious…”
