Ed Sheeran accused of plagiarism – Gala

Ed Sheeran won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in February, thanks to his hit Thinking Out Loud . But the singer is now accused of plagiarism because its title would look a little too famous Let’s Get It On Marvin Gaye …

Marvin Gaye is definitely the favorite muse of artists today, who often inspire. Maybe even a little too much. After Blurred Lines , tube Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams is Thinking Out Loud , Ed Sheeran, who is referred to plagiarism. This time it is the family of Ed Townsend, author of the famous song sensual agreements, and not the singer who seeks justice. “The melody, harmony and rhythm composition of Thinking Out Loud look substantially, even striking composition for battery Let’s Get It On “reads the complaint filed Aug. 9 in federal court in New York.

the plaintiffs attack by a large piece, as Thinking out Loud was rewarded in February by the Grammy Award for song of the year. They indicated that the British singer has so far ignored their warnings. It is thus personally targeted in the complaint, and the record label and producing it.

This is not going to help, but Ed Sheeran was aware of the similarity between the two songs . A video of one of his concerts, published on Youtube, is even evidence. On stage in Zurich in 2014, the artist sings Thinking Out Loud accompanied only by his guitar and then, without even changing agree or tone, begins a few verses of Let’s Get It On .

This trial could be at least a happy Bruno Mars. The singer was taken very badly that his colleague was nominated six times for Grammys this year. “I just woke up. Is all this is real ?, “he asked on Twitter before insulting Ed Sheeran, and publish an ironic montage of the singer and of himself in the ring, ready to fight. is looks forward to his reaction
