‘Uptown Funk’: Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson Accused Of Plagiarism

Published: Tuesday 11th Aug 2015 by David

Mark Ronson and his ‘Uptown Funk‘ pal Bruno Mars have been accused of stealing music and using it to create their #1 single ‘Uptown Funk.’

Bad news below…

The Serbian singer Viktorija claims ‘Funk’ shares many similarities with her song ‘Dark Streets Are Not for Girls’ and has stepped forward to say she believes the song inspired 80% of what the world hears on ‘Uptown.’

However, she’s in no rush to sue them…yet.

She shared:

Their song Uptown Funk contains 80 percent of my tracks. How much of it are you allowed to take as inspiration for your song?I’m in no hurry to sue them, these processes take a long time, and my life and career does not depend on lawsuits.

For these lawsuits, there should be a lot of money, the lawyers are working on a percentage.

If I still decide to sue them and I win, I have to figure out what to do with that money.

The ‘Funky‘ duo are yet to respond.

Your thoughts?

      Oh my little SAD Bruno. Your dad Jafar wants you to Marry Alladin and you don’t want to dissapoint him. You put corn rolls in your hair and dressed all nice. May I suggest breast implants and a better voice.

    So why say anything and throw these accusations around if you’re not going to proceed with legal actions?

  8. Astro August 11, 2015

    I’m from Serbia. The first time I heard this song I was like. But wait? Isn’t this… lol That Serbian girl group was really big in the region. I wasn’t born but we still have their songs on the radio.

    She needs to attend an accredited music school so she can actually legitimize her ridiculous claims. If anything her song Dark Streets Are Not for Girls’is a slower tempo version of Michael Jackson’s Workin’ Day And Night from Off The Wall. Look it up!
