Introducing The Business

Album: Record Collection (2010)
  • This stomp features Atlanta-based rapper Pill and the London Gay Men's Chorus. Backing vocals are by Ronson's long-time collaborator Alex Greenwald of Phantom Planet, who previously featured on the Rehab producer's version of Radiohead's 'Just'.
  • Ronson said to Spinmagazine of the London Gay Men's Chorus' contribution: "I wanted the song with the choir to sound like Roland Emmerich–2012-s--t-blowing-up-in-the-background. And those guys came in, and they just rocked it."
  • The title is a reference to the name Mark Ronson and the Business Intl, which the producer started recording as for the Record Collection album. "The Business" is British slang meaning "The Best."
