Mark Ronson: ‘Lady GaGa Told Me To Sing’
EXCLUSIVE | He speaks to MTV News about hitting the studio with the star…

Mark Ronson has revealed to MTV News that Lady GaGa inspired him to sing on his new album Record Collection.
Ronson sings on two songs for the LP- which will also feature Q-Tip, MNDR and members of The Drums and Kaiser Chiefs.
The super-producer hit the studio last year with GaGa to work on Wale’s track Chillin’ just as she hit the limelight.
“When I met her Just Dance was sort of blowing up so it wasn’t too crazy,” explained Ronson “We were in the studio recording the vocals for the Wale song ‘Chillin.’”
“She was actually the one that told me to take singing lessons – she was like ‘you should try singing you never know’.”
And he recalled that even back then she was busy planning her world domination. The producer said:
“We were leaving the studio at 12.30am and I was ready to go out and get wasted and I was like ‘what are you doing?’ GaGa said ‘I’m just going back to the hotel because I’m designing these perspex boxes that are going to go on my dress.’
“She seemed so at the helm of the ship… it was probably what talking to Madonna in 1982 would have felt like. I think she deserves every bit of the success that she’s had.”
Ronson’s Record Collection album is due out this September. He’s currently in the studio with Duran Duran producing their new material.
