Reporters recently got in touch with Pharrell Williams, producer of Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines to discuss the allegation that he stole the track from Marvin Gaye’s Got To Give It Up. While at NYC’s Fashion week Pharrell told journalists that his track is completely different from Marvin Gaye’s song.
“I’m a huge fan of Marvin Gaye. He is a genius. He is the patriarch,”If you read music, all you have to do is read the sheet music. It’s completely different. [Marvin Gaye] is the king of all kings, so let’s be clear about that. And we take our hats off to him. But anybody that plays music and reads music, just simply go to the piano and play the two. One’s minor and one’s major. And not even in the same key.” -Pharrell at NYC Fashion Week
