Mark Ronson is singularly responsible for funking up this fall, and we couldn’t be more grateful. “Uptown Funk,” his slinky groovetastic floor filler with Bruno Mars, has been blaring out of speakers worldwide, and that’s just the start of the story for the famed producer and DJ. He stole the show on an episode of Saturday Night Live with Mars and rapper Mystikal a few weeks back, and recently experienced a moment that he calls “the most amazing, surreal part of my musical journey.” For a man who has worked with everyone from Amy Winehouse, Paul McCartney, and Adele (just to name a very few), it must have been pretty damn incredible. From his new song and new album, to career highlights, Ronson revealed all to Jim Shearer On VH1’s Top 20 Countdown.
Mark Ronson’s latest album Uptown Special is due in stores on January 27th and will feature appearances from Mars, Mystikal, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, Keyone Starr and more. Start counting down the days! The infectious video for “Uptown Funk” will give you a taste of what’s to come.
