‘Get Her Back’ beau Robin Thicke seems to take two steps back for every step he takes forward regarding the highly publicized case surrounding his career-defining hit ‘Blurred Lines.’
As fans know, he – alongside ‘Lines’ co-stars Pharrell Williams, T.I., and their label Universal Music – were sued by the family of late Motown legend Marvin Gaye for the song’s similarity to his 1977 hit ‘Got To Give It Up.’ The result? A whopping $7.4 million dollar decision in favor of the family.
In response to the unfavorable verdict, Williams was hung out to dry as Thicke, Universal Music, and T.I. tried to downplay their involvement in the song’s creation – despite all receiving royalties. Much to the singer and his label’s dismay, only T.I. was able to successfully escape the copyright infringement claim…initially.
The week week brought with it fresh updates surrounding the case that will give the song’s producer, ‘Happy’ hitmaker Williams, a new reason to smile. T.I. and Universal Music, on the other hand, probably won’t be.
