Mark Ronson is a rare producer whose work bears his authorial signature whether Bruno Mars, Amy Winehouse or Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker feature as vocalists. Riding high from his Record of the Year GRAMMY win for “Uptown Funk”, Ronson has his selection of collaborators for “whatever’s next.” He’s working with Lady Gaga this year and told GQ he’d happily make music with Harry Styles.
“Yes, absolutely,” Ronson said over lunch at the Ivy in Los Angeles. “He seems like he has something genuine to say.”
However, with his pick of talent to collaborate with, Ronson says he’s learning to be choosier about the things he says “yes” to. He is, after all, only one guy.
“Someone gave me a good piece of advice recently,” he said. “For all the things you say ‘yes’ to, if you had to do these things tomorrow, rather in a few months time, would you still agree to do it?”
