Peking Duk wants Mark Ronson to “Uptown, funk you up, Uptown funk you up” on #ItsTheShip2015 this year.
It seems that the Australian electronic music duo, Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles, are not-so-closet fans of Mark as they’ve just sent him a tweet which read:
Note: The above tweet has since been taken down.
What, the name Mark Ronson doesn’t sound familiar to you?
He’s an English musician, DJ, singer, and record producer who recently shot to international fame, bagging the 2015 Brit Award’s “British Single of the Year” for his song, “Uptown Funk“. And that’s not to say that he wasn’t already popular in the UK before that, as he was also named GQ magazine’s “50 Best Dressed British Men”.
As a producer, he has produced multiple songs on the albums of singers Lamya, Macy Gray, Christina Aguilera, Lily Allen, and Robbie Williams. Mark has also produced multi-platinum, Grammy-winning albums for artistes such as Amy Winehouse and Adele.
It’s safe to say that we’re practically shaking with excitement! Is he coming for #ItsTheShip2015 too? Is he, is he? As at time of writing, Mark has yet to respond to Peking Duk’s tweet. But we’ll update this post with more information as soon as we know :)
We’ll leave you now with Mark Ronson’s hit song, “Uptown Funk” featuring Bruno Mars. Go ahead and get jiggy with this one. You know you want to:
