Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk goes straight to the top

Since the single’s early release on Monday evening (December 8), the track has been downloaded over 105,000 times and streamed 1.35 million times.

Mark Ronson press shot 2014.

Ronson said: “This is my first number one single as an artist or producer so I just want to thank everyone who bought, downloaded or DJed ‘Uptown Funk’ this past week. It’s pretty much the coolest thing ever. 

“I also have to thank Phil Smeeze, Jeff Bhasker and the boy wonder Bruno Mars, without whom there’d be no jam.”

The track pushes last week’s number one, Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud‘, off the top spot and down to number two.
