Watch Mark Ronson Tell The Origin Story Of His Best Brit Single, ‘Uptown Funk’

Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran might’ve cleaned up at today’s Brit Awards – taking out the coveted Best Album and Best Male Solo Artist, Best Breakthrough Act and the Global Success Awards respectively – but the real global success story now and forevermore is surely Mark Ronson, who also took home Best Single courtesy of his undeniably infectious best single ‘Uptown Funk’.

In the country recently to raise awareness of his ineffable je ne sais quoi and also his new album Uptown Special, we sat down with Ronson to extract – amongst other things, like very embarrassing fan photos – the origin story of his ice cold hit using the protracted metaphor of premature child birth.
