Bruno Mars might be headed back to the courtroom.
The singer and Mark Ronson are being sued by the group Collage who are claiming that song "Uptown Funk" is a copy of their 1983 song "Young Girls," according to TMZ. The band is saying that the song copies the harmony, melody, structure and rhythm of their song.
“The distinct funky specifically noted and timed consistent guitar riffs present throughout the compositions, virtually if not identical bass notes and sequence, rhythm, structure, crescendo of horns and synthesizers rendering the compositions almost indistinguishable if played over each other and strikingly similar if played in consecutively,” the claim states.
Mars is currently living life off of his new single "24K Magic" and we couldn't be happier for him so we are seriously hoping that all of this gets settled.
"I hope that my music does the talking," he said of how he wants to be remembered. "I just wanna do music. It could be boring for people this day and age, but I don't wanna be known for no scandals or controversy. I want to be the guy that brings joy to your life through his music. That's it," he told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 recently.
