Mark Ronson and the Business Intl. featuring Andrew Wyatt and Boy George - “Somebody to Love Me”
British producer Mark Ronson - best known for his work on Amy Winehouse’s 2007 smash Back to Black - had success with his own guest-laden album, Version, one year later. Now, he has dropped the heavy-horn-section sound and gone with a more 80s feel on the new Record Collection. This shuffling, melodic track features Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt on lead vocal, with Boy George coming out of retirement to contribute throughout.
Amy Winehouse exploded in 2007 with her release Back to Black, produced by British DJ Mark Ronson. Ronson took Winehouse’s soulful vocals and matched them with Sharon Jones’ backing band, the Dap-Kings to create a sound that revived British R&B. This track showcases that sound in all its glory, with its skittering drums and horn bursts. Though she has self-destructed in recent years, this record keeps fans hoping for a follow-up.
