‘Uptown Funk’ is one of the biggest hits in recent memory, but the single is proving to be an equally controversial case in the courtroom.
Producer Mark Ronson was recently sued for (allegedly) ripping off Roger and Zapp‘s 1980 classic ‘More Bounce to the Ounce.’
Now, another party has come to the legal roast, claiming the same…about a different song.
Details after the jump…
According to TMZ, female rap group named The Sequence are the latest accusers.
The trio claim their 1979 hit ‘Funk You Up’ (which became the third rap song ever to reach Billboard’s Top 50) was borrowed unlawfully.
In court docs, the group claims Mars and Ronson’s song has “significant and substantially similar compositional elements” of ‘Funk You Up.’
The ladies are requesting for a jury trial and unspecified amount of money from Mars — and Ronson.
We’ve heard the original and this whole case sounds like a reach to heavens. But listen below and let us know what you think….
