Mary Lambert on joining Macklemore hit 'Same Love'

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - When asked if she would work on a track for rap duo Mackelmore and Ryan Lewis, singer/songwriter Mary Lambert said she'd "pencil that in." Lambert was joking, of course.

The 24-year-old Seattle resident went on to secure her place in music history as 'Same Love' became one of the most popular songs of 2013.

She spoke about her meteoric rise to fame with Good Day New York on Tuesday from the studios of radio station Z100.

"I got a call from Paulette who sings on White Walls (by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis) and she was like 'do you want to do a song with Mackelmore? ' I said I think I’ll pencil that in… it was sort of a trial… I think I was their last resort," said Lambert.

The inked-up artist (she has large, colorful pansies tattooed on her left arm) had the musical experience of a lifetime when Madonna wanted to sing a duet with her during the 2013 Grammy awards.

"She was very kind. We had rehearsals and Madonna wiped my tears because I was crying so much. She’s so, so kind," said the two-time Grammy nominee.

Lambert is currently working on a full length record expected to be released in the spring.

"I’m talking about some hard-hitting things, I might be talking about domestic abuse. I don’t really have an agenda. I’ll take things as they’re conjured up," said Lambert.
