Divorcee and Blurred Lines Singer Robin Thicke, Must Fork Over A Whopping $7 Million Dollars, as the jury finds him and Pharell Williams guilty of copying Marvin Gaye’s “Give It Up”.
The duo, Thicke and Pharell, have been tied up in a lawsuit with the RnB legend, Marvin Gaye’s estate amid claims that they ripped off his song “Give It Up”.
If you ask us, the songs are strikingly similar, they maintain the same chord progressions and rhythmic patterns, too bad Pharell the producer wasn’t original. Poor thing.
$7.3 Million Dollars will be paid to the Gaye Estate, and this is a great moment for original music prevailing!
Hear the similarities below, what do you think?
