"Dance Off" has been very popular in Australia for a number of weeks now, probably because of its use of English actor Idris Elba. Idris Elba is the star of many Hollywood blockbusters including Zootopia, Thor, Pacific Rim, and Prometheus. In Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' song, Idris dramatically speaks the loop, "I challenge you to dance off/Hands off, no trash talk, no back walk/On the black top, just me, you, that's all/No cat calls, no tag teams, no mascots/Right now, dance off."
"Dance Off" featuring Idris Elba is off Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' sophomore LP This Unruly Mess I've Made, which was released in February through Macklemore, LLC. It reached number one on the UK OCC R&B Albums, US Billboard Independent Albums, and US Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Charts. It is available on iTunes and Spotify. Macklemore's next performance is tonight in Los Angeles.
