Looks like it’s Miller time for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

The duo’s unreleased song “Can’t Hold Us,” which features Ray Dalton, is featured in a Miller Genuine Draft commercial. Check out the commercial above.

While you don’t hear Macklemore spit rhymes in the portion of the song that is used in the commercial anyone who has seem Macklemore live recently will be able to identify “Can’t Hold Us.” For reference here’s the full song.

Things have been pretty quiet in the Macklemore camp since the Irish rapper more or less dominated KeyArena during Bumbershoot last year. The Miller commercial is the first bit of news from the Shark Face Gang leader and it could signal that Macklemore is ready to start making a push for his long-awaited follow up to 2009′s Vs. EP.

There has been no word on a release date or title for his next album but given the exposure “Can’t Hold Us” will likely get thanks to this commercial you can expect the song to likely make the album’s track list. You can also expect “Make The Money” to appear on the album as well since it is getting radio play.

** Apologies for the poor video quality, I filmed the commercial off my computer and uploaded to YouTube because I couldn’t track down an embeddable version.
