Seattle-born rapper Macklemore skyrocketed to fame with the release of "Thrift Shop," his ode to second-hand shopping. Now, the 29 year old is proving he's more than a one-hit wonder with his new music video for "Can't Hold Us."

In the video (shown above), Macklemore is shown riding a dog sled through the mountains, carrying a flag bearing the name of his album, rapping on a ship, and hanging out with a camel.

Originally released as a single in 2011, "Can't Hold Us" was rereleased after the rapper gained national attention for "Thrift Shop." The track has been a much bigger success the second time around, getting picked up for multiple ad campaigns, and nabbing a feature spot on the MTV Movie Awards, as the rapper performed the track live.

While he's been recording music for more than a decade, Macklemore, born Ben Haggerty, rose to prominence with his sophomore album "The Heist." The album, which features "Can't Hold Us" and "Thrift Shop," hit No. 1 on iTunes and has been certified Gold.
