Uptown Funk has become an unlikely number one pop song for Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars from his 2015 fourth studio album Uptown Special. It's kind of refreshing to hear a funk song break into the mainstream. I have a feeling this what Prince has been trying to accomplish over the past decade or so. He could do somebody like Ronson to tweak a few of his songs for the mainstream audience. Bruno Mars has made his Michael Jackson obsession fairly obvious over the years, and there's even been a rumor that he was Michael Jackson's secret son. I guess it makes sense that Uptown Funk's would borrow from the King of Pop's fourth single from his 1991 Dangerous album titled Jam. Here is an excellent mash up from Soundcloud user IsaacJScruse:
