Music charts double top for producer Mark Ronson

By Catherine Wylie

Mark Ronson has become the first act of 2015 to top both the UK's official singles chart and albums chart at the same time.

The producer, whose fourth studio album Uptown Special marks his first chart-topping LP in the UK, has described the achievement as "absolutely incredible".

He peaked at number two with his last two albums - 2007's Version and 2010's Record Collection.

The musician has also claimed a sixth non-consecutive week at number one with his single Uptown Funk featuring Bruno Mars, with combined chart sales of 120,000.

The track was streamed 2.562 million times in the last seven days.

"This is absolutely incredible," said Ronson.
