Here Comes the Fuzz is the debut studio album by British producer Mark Ronson. The album was released on September 8, 2003, lead by the lead single, "Ooh Wee". Unlike Ronson's later releases, his debut album focuses more on the genre of hip-hop, with guest appearances from a number of famous rappers and hip-hop alumni, including Ghostface Killah, M.O.P., Nate Dogg, Saigon and Sean Paul. The album also features appearances from singers Rivers Cuomo and Daniel Merriweather, whose commercial breakthrough came with this album. The album did not perform well chart wise, only peaking at #70 in Ronson's home territory, however it did sell more than 18,000 copies in the US. Ronson later addressed the failure of the album, often by joking that "only 12 people bought it."
The song "International Affair" was originally released on Sean Paul's 2002 album Dutty Rock, and featured vocals from Debi Nova instead of Tweet. Nova contributes vocals to the album track "Tomorrow". Rolling Stone predicted the album would stop the critical ill-will towards Ronson, saying Ronson "serves up a grab bag of pumping beats."Entertainment Weekly gave the album a C, saying "the collection's overall disco-licious come-together vibe is cloying and insubstantial." The popularity of the album grew following the release of the follow-up album Version in 2007, which saw Ronson collaborate with a number of well-known British and American artists on covers of well-known songs.
"NYC Rules", featuring vocals from Daniel Merriweather and Saigon, was released as the album's second single on February 16, 2004. The single was only released in Australia, and for its release, was re-titled "City Rules". It was promoted as Merriweather's first single in the country, and the cover art stated Ronson as the featured artist. The track peaked at #76 on the ARIA Charts.
"She's Got Me", again featuring vocals from Daniel Merriweather, was released as the album's third single on August 23, 2004. The single was again only released in Australia, and was promoted as Merriweather's second single in the country, with the cover art once again stating Ronson as the featured artist. The track faired slightly better, peaking at #69 on the ARIA Charts.
