Mark Ronson scores U.K. chart double

British superproducer Mark Ronson has earned a U.K. chart double with the release of his new album Uptown Special and his hit single Uptown Funk.

The hitmaker's fourth studio release, Uptown Special, debuts at the top of the Official U.K. Top 40 Albums Chart, giving Ronson his first number one album at home, while his Bruno Mars collaboration notched up a sixth week in pole position on the singles countdown.


The feat marks the first time the same artist has led both the nation's charts since Miley Cyrus in 2013.


The success of Uptown Special forces Fall Out Boy to settle for second place with their new project, American Beauty/American Psycho, just ahead of Ed Sheeran's X.


In the Official U.K. Top 40 Singles Chart, Meghan Trainor's Lips Are Movin' rises 48 places to two, while Hozier remains unmoved at three with Take Me To Church.
