Mark Ronson ‘making £65,000 a week’ from ‘Uptown Funk’ Spotify streams

Hit single has been streamed 125 million times since its release in November 2014

Mark Ronson is reportedly earning $100,000 (£65,000) per week through Spotify from streams of his single ‘Uptown Funk’.

The hit single has been streamed 125 million times since its release in November 2014 and was streamed over 15m times in the last week of January alone.

Using Spotify’s rough estimate of its payment to rightsholders ($0.007 per play), Music Business World estimates that ‘Uptown Funk’ has earned $880,000 (£573,000) since its release.

This money will be shared between Ronson, his label Columbia plus his publisher Imagem and his co-writers, Jeff Bhasker, Bruno Mars and Philip Lawrence of The Smeezingtons.

Ronson’s seven-week reign at the top of the Official UK Single Chart was recently ended by Ellie Goulding with her single ‘Love Me Like You Do’.

Mark Ronson was recently confirmed to headline a gig for Jameela Jamil’s Why Not People? – the first company of its kind putting on live events for people with disabilities.
