Hip-hop artist Macklemore is seen in his new music video "Glorious" singing karaoke with his grandmother at Run Around Sue's in Ceres.

Besides a host of other sites shot in Modesto, the video ends with a serene drive at Turlock Lake east of Waterford.

The video, which had over 10 million hits on YouTube in a week, is centered on a surprise visit to his 100-year-old grandmother's home in Modesto and showing her a good time around town in a gold-colored Cadillac. The pair is seen driving down I Street with the Modesto arch in the background on the way to egging a friend's house. Grandma Helen gets a pair of shoes at Hy-Step Shoes on McHenry Avenue and a visit to Second Chance Consignments. The shopping scene was shot at Winco Foods in Modesto.

The popular recording artist began appearing on social media in June after locals saw him making stops in Waterford and Roberts Ferry.

Skylar Grey also sings in the music video.

Macklemore, 34, was born Benjamin Hammond Haggerty, and hails from Kent, Wash. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's single "Thrift Shop" reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 2013. Macklemore voiced his support of LGBT rights and same-sex marriage in the song "Same Love," which also condemns homophobia in culture.
