Uh oh.

Did Bruno Mars steal “Uptown Funk?!”

According to TMZ, The Sequence- one of the first female rap groups- claims Mars used their 1979 hit, “Funk You Up” as the inspiration for his massive hit with Mark Ronson. I mean, the song just won grammy of the year, so if this is real Mark and Bruno could be in real trouble.

The group’s rep, Kali Bowyer, claims the hook to both songs are the same, and there are other similarities as well. There’s no lawsuit…yet. But who knows what’ll happen this week.

Decide for yourself if “Funk You Up” is like “Uptown Funk.” I don’t really think it sounds that much like it- and honestly, I kinda think The Girls of the Sequence just want a little cash in their pockets.
