It's Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk"

Mark Ronson was behind Bruno Mars' mega hit "Locked Out Of Heaven" and lesser hit "Gorilla," so it makes sense that the boys would come together for at least one track off Ronson's upcoming album. And so now we have "Uptown Funk," a slice of Prince-channeling-James-Brown soul that's not exactly "Locked Out Of Heaven," but still pretty decent.

The two will perform the song on Saturday Night Live in two weeks, and I wouldn't be surprised if this turns into an inescapable, "Happy"-sized smash.
