Robin Thicke’s“Blurred Lines” has already broken records and now its gaining more attention for allegedly sounding too much like Marvin Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up.”

Blurred Lines is Thicke’s first number 1 album in the US and has broken the record for the highest radio audience ever recorded. The track has also reached more than 242.65 million listeners, breaking the previous record of 188.8 million…which kind of explains the reason for the suit. {shruggs}

Defendants continue to insist that plaintiffs’ massively successful composition, ‘Blurred Lines,’ copies ‘their’ compositions.”
