‘Uptown Funk’, the leading single from Mark Ronson’s upcoming album ‘Uptown Special’, has just enjoyed a fourth non-consecutive week at Number One and broke its own record for the most amount of times any one single has been streamed in a week, amassing a total of 2.56 million streams.

It was reported yesterday that Ronson has dedicated his new album to the late Amy Winehouse. In a post on Twitter Ronson shared a note he said was accidentally left off the album notes when they were printed, that read: “Although I wish you were still here, I’m always thinking of you, inspired by you and your music lives on in myself and everyone who ever felt it.”

‘Uptown Special’, which has been inspired by the New York hip-hop scene of the ’90s, is due for release January 19 via Columbia Records. Written and produced with Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Drake, Alicia Keys) over 18 months in London, Memphis, LA and New York City, it is Ronson’s fourth studio album and his first release since 2010’s ‘Record Collection’. It features appearances from Kevin Parker, Mystikal and Stevie Wonder.
