Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ soul-funk anthem is revealed as the UK’s latest million-selling single by Official Charts.
Just two months after its release, Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk FT Bruno Mars has become one of the UK’s biggest-selling singles of all time, the Official Charts can reveal.
The infectious track has passed the million copies sales barrier according to Official Charts Company data, and in doing so becomes the 158th single to reach the milestone in British charts history.
“I can’t believe it, it’s insane.” Mark told OfficialCharts.com, “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”.
Following a performance by 2014 X Factor finalist Fleur East, Uptown Funk’s official release was bought forward five weeks, with the track debuting at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart in December, giving Mark his first UK chart-topper and Bruno his fifth.
The next week the track was beaten to the Official Christmas Number 1 spot by X Factor winner Ben Haenow’s Something I Need, before making its triumphant return to the top the following week, racking up another six consecutive weeks at the top.
The lead single from Mark’s Official Albums Chart Number 1 Uptown Special, Uptown Funk also broke the all-time UK record for most audio streams in a week back in Janaury, racking up 2.56m listens in seven days.
While Uptown Funk is Mark Ronson’s debut million-seller, Bruno Mars is no stranger to the club with 2010 single Just The Way You Are (Amazing) passing the milestone in 2011.
