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.

    School is back in session for some and will be for most students and staff starting next week.  Good Day New York wanted to salute teachers from across the Tristate as they head back to the classroom. On Thursday, a live studio audience of teachers were part of the Back To School Special: Good Day New York Sorry Summer is Over But We Praise and Honor Teachers (but no math; we like math teachers, though.)

    The U.S. Open is underway in Queens and there's no denying that many of the players, both men and women, are in great physical shape and know how to play that up. Women are particularly promoted in the industry as attractive, fashionable and fiercely competitive. Does that help the game and draw more people in?
