Macklemore & Ryan Lewis hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with "Thrift Shop" on Wednesday, passing Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven."

Earlier in January, "Thrift Shop" went platinum, selling more than a million copies.

On Youtube, the music video (explicit version) for "Thrift Shop" has been played more than 65 million times.

That marks the first time a Seattle artist had a song go number one since Sir Mix-a-lot's "Baby Got Back" in 1992.
