Same Love scores Grammy nom for Song of the Year
Gay anthem ‘Same Love’ has come up trumps at this year’s Grammy nominations with the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis track amongst the contenders for the Song of the Year.
Originally released in July2012, the track was reissued a year later and quickly climbed the charts to number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song, which includes one of the most memorable hooks of recent times sung by Mary Lambert, has become the theme for equal love around the world.
Speaking at a press conference after the nominations party, Lambert said all three of them now understood the importance of the song.
"There was a point this year when I realised,” said Lambert. “It's not about ego or about any of our careers. This is a song that's reflecting where we are in our culture, and that's a really beautiful thing to be a part of. And also not to be apologising for being gay and being able to say that across the world."
Ryan Lewis for his part was astonished at the song’s success and said to win a grammy would be the pinnacle of it success.
