The lawsuit claims that there has been “significant and substantially similar compositional elements.” The Sequence wants money as retribution and a trial against Bruno and Mark. Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson created Grammy magic in 2014 with their crossover hit, “Uptown Funk”.
TMZ revealed that the Grammy winning single is facing trouble from a rap group that claims it’s too similar to their 70’s hit. The female group known as “The Sequence” released their single “Funk You Up” in 1979, becoming the first rap song to reach Billboard’s Top 50 Singles. The group consisted of Cheryl “Cheryl the Pearl” Cook and Gwendolyn “Blondie” Chisolm and R&B hitmaker Angie Stone.
