Marvin Gaye's Family Wants Credit For Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines'
INSIDE EDITION spoke to Marvin Gaye III who says his father's legacy deserves credit for Robin Thicke's hit song "Blurred Lines."
It's the hit song of the summer—Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," that caused such a stir at the VMA's with Miley Cyrus. But, was it stolen?
Thicke's hit song sounds an awful lot like the Marvin Gaye classic, "Got To Give It Up" from 1977. Marvin Gaye's son, Marvin III, claims that Thicke and the song's two co-writers copied portions of his father's song.
Marvin Gaye III told INSIDE EDITION, "Anybody with any musical knowledge can hear the nuances between the two. In a perfect world, you give credit where credit is due."
"Blurred Lines" has sold more than 4.6 million copies. A lot of people credit the song's popularity to its sexy video.
Just before the song was released, Thicke was quoted in the May issue of GQ magazine as saying: "One of my favorite songs of all time was Marvin Gaye's "Got To Give It Up." I was like, 'We should make something like that, something with that groove.'"
INSIDE EDITION's Jim Moret asked, "How do you think your dad would react to that?"
"He would be upset about that. That he wasn't recognized for his hard work," said Marvin Gaye III.
Thicke and the other song writers deny any copyright infringement.
