Robin Thick is currently embroiled in a legal spat with the estate of music legend Marvin Gaye after filing a preemptive lawsuit to protect the hit record “Blurred Lines.”
According to the suit, Thick is fighting against allegations by the estate that his song sounds strikingly similar to Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up.”
But according to an interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, Thick appears to agree with the Gaye family.
DJ Envy commented, “We connected with that record. It sounds a lot like Marvin Gaye’s ‘Keep On Dancing.’”
Thick corrected DJ Envy, saying, “Yeah, well ‘Got To Give It Up’ is the title. Same song.”
Envy said his mother even thought it was a Marvin Gaye record.
“…and my mom was like ‘that’s Marvin Gaye.’ And she’s singing it and I’m like what Marvin Gaye and I had to go look it up,” he said.
Thicke said the most feedback he’s gotten from the record is “how it’s like the family reunion record right now.”
“…It’s got the old school feel, but it still feels fresh and young,” Thicke continued. “And I really gotta give all that credit to Pharell. I write and produce all my own music, but being in the studio with Pharell, I really kind of stepped back. He came up with the ‘Hey Hey Hey.’ He came up with the best lines in the song like ‘You’re the hottest chick in this place.’ So mad love and props to Pharell. I mean he’s a songwriting genius and I’m getting all the credit for his greatness right now.”
“Blurred Lines” is spending its 11th week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. It has sold over 4.6 million tracks.
