Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson Sued Over “Uptown Funk”

bruno-mars-800

Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson are facing a copyright infringement lawsuit that claims their hit “Uptown Funk” borrows heavily from funk group Collage’s 1983 single “Young Girls.”

Their suit goes on to highlight that Mars and Ronson are fans of the Minneapolis/1980s electro-funk soul sound. Hence, they allege, the pair are more than likely to have heard and copied their song.

Only one member of Collage is alive, but he’s undeterred in making a beeline for a piece of the huge pie that is ‘Funk’s profits.

Easily Mars and Ronson’s biggest song to date, the song has sold than 6.1 million copies; it’s the 2nd-longest #1 hit single in Billboard history, and makes the label alone a reported $100k a week via Spotify streams.

Listen to both songs and tell us what you think.
