Grammy Record of the year winner Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars have been accused of stealing their recent hit â€œUptown Funkâ€.
70â€™s girl group The Sequence, believe that the Grammy winner song Uptown Funk is a facsimile of the 1979 single â€œFunk You Upâ€
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 â€œThis is not and has not been an overnight issue, nor following the Grammy bandwagon party.
â€œThe fight did not just begin, the issues and paperwork date back going on close to two years, over the songs â€˜Uptown Funkâ€™ and â€˜Funk You Up,â€™ and with the issue is respect to Bruno dates back to the actual release date of â€œUptown Funk.â€
There are numerous similarities in the lyrics as well. The 70â€™s track has the lyrics â€œFunk you, right on up, weâ€™re gonna funk you right on upâ€, while the Ronson sensation has â€œUp, Town, Funk you up, Uptown Funk You Up.â€
A lawsuit hasnâ€™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 â€œBlurred Lines.â€
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.
