Grammy Record of the year winner Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars have been accused of stealing their recent hit “Uptown Funk”.

70’s girl group The Sequence, believe that the Grammy winner song Uptown Funk is a facsimile of the 1979 single “Funk You Up”

Kali Bowyer, the rep for the trio (which consisted of Blondy, Angie Stone and Cheryl the Pearl) claims that both songs clearly resemble each other.

He further added “This is not and has not been an overnight issue, nor following the Grammy bandwagon party.

“The fight did not just begin, the issues and paperwork date back going on close to two years, over the songs ‘Uptown Funk’ and ‘Funk You Up,’ and with the issue is respect to Bruno dates back to the actual release date of “Uptown Funk.”

There are numerous similarities in the lyrics as well. The 70’s track has the lyrics “Funk you, right on up, we’re gonna funk you right on up”, while the Ronson sensation has “Up, Town, Funk you up, Uptown Funk You Up.”

A lawsuit hasn’t been filled yet, but this will not be the first time. In past, The Marvin Gaye family won lawsuit against Robin Thicke and Pharrell for “Blurred Lines.”

With almost 1.5 billion views on YouTube and numerous awards, Uptown Funk without any doubt is one of the most successful songs in the history of English Music.
