Following a litany of #1* Billboard dance charters including “Uptown Funk” with Bruno Mars, “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” featuring Miley Cyrus and “Find U Again” with Camila Cabello, Mark Ronson retuns to the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart with “Don’t Leave Me Lonely” featuring Yebba. And within a week of release he RCA Records title locks down this week’s #3 Breakout chart position.
The latest single from the UK native’s recent album Late Night Feelings, “Don’t Leave Me Lonely” finds 24-year-old vocalist Yebba singing about an impending breakup and fallout … “Tell me baby what’s on your heart?/’Cause I’ve been wandering around in your dark, yeah/ I’ve got way too many questions, always learning lessons/ Loving too hard (loving too hard)” before hammering the final nail in the coffin: “Oh if we fall apart/ Let’s do it in the dark/ Hit me in the heart this time.”
As usual, the heart-felt lyrics are backed up by Ronson who makes use of minimal instruments to create a highly danceable yet powerful piece. Listen to the original version via its video below.
In addition to the initial offering, dance floor DJ support comes in the form of solid remixes by world-renowned producer/DJs Claptone and Purple Disco Machine. Listen to one of the fresh takes on this week’s #3 Breakout track ‘Don’t Leave Me Lonely” here.
