Mark Ronson says 'Uptown Funk' was good because of Bruno Mars

Mark Ronson admits that Bruno Mars takes 'Uptown Funk' to the next level.

The musician and producer teamed up with the US singer for the 2014 track.

It became an instant hit, selling millions of copies worldwide.

Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, Ronson said that he thinks Mars' input makes the song better.

He said: "The song wouldn't have been as good if it wasn't for Bruno. I think people think I made 'Uptown Funk' and sent it to Bruno to do the vocal.

"But that song is very much his creation. I remember spending three days in Memphis slaving over that song and thinking that we finally had it.

"I then got a call from him two days later saying, 'No, it's not it.' And I knew deep down it wasn't it either."

The tune meanwhile features on Ronson's 2015 album 'Uptown Special'.
