Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk hits 1 million sales: “It’s insane!”

Mark Ronson’s 'Uptown Funk' FT Bruno Mars has become one of the UK’s biggest-selling singles of all time, Official Charts can reveal.

The producer is pictured celebrating with new BBC Radio 1 Official Chart host Clara Amfo who broke the good news to him on today’s show. 

The infectious soul-funk track has joined the million sellers club just ten weeks after its release, according to Official Charts Company data, and in doing so becomes the 158th single to reach the sales milestone in British charts history.

“I can’t believe it, it’s insane.” Mark told, “It’s definitely an amazing milestone to be in this club with all these massive superstars.

“On behalf of myself and Bruno, I just want to thank everybody who bought this record and put us in this club”.
