An artist's depiction of Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk music video

Congrats are due for singer Bruno Mars and his “Uptown Funk” collaborator Mark Ronson! You couldn’t escape the tune in summer 2015 (I tried) and it even managed to work it’s way into the iconic 2016 Superbowl performance (featuring Queen 🐝 herself). Well now the song can add another huge accomplishment: being only one of a handful of singles to go diamond, says the RIAA earlier this afternoon.

According to, Bruno’s in good company.

Uptown Funk” is the 13th Diamond song in RIAA history and the most recently released, according to a press release. It joins the elite company of tacks like Justin Bieber’s “Baby,” Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie,” Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” and Katy Perry’s “Firework.”

That’s great. I wasn’t here for the song (I know I’m in the minority) but I have to give credit where credit is due! What were your thoughts on Uptown Funk (or the slanderless Superbowl performance)? Check out the official video again via Vevo (you know you want to!) below:
