Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars take you to funkytown in the throwback video for “Uptown Funk,” the first single from Ronson’s fourth album Uptown Special. The duo behind “Locked Out of Heaven” and “Gorilla” show out in the streets in their dapper ’80s attire. Looking smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy, Bruno and his Hooligans bust out their best moves before hitting the salon to get a fresh perm.
Uptown Special, which arrives January 27, was written and produced with Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Drake) over 18 months in London, Memphis, L.A., and New York.
“Before smart phones, bottle service, and smoking bans, people came to the club, found their spot, and stayed all night, absorbed in the music,” said Ronson. “With Uptown Special I set out to capture the feeling I remember from those New York nights.”
Tune in to “SNL” this weekend to see them perform the song live.
