Pharrell might have found himself in more trouble with Marvin Gaye‘s family. The super-producer is now being accused of ripping off another one of Marvin Gaye’s songs. This time it’s Pharrell’s “Happy” and Gaye’s “Ain’t That Peculiar?”

The Gaye family was just awarded $7.4 million from a lawsuit against Pharrell and Robin Thicke in the “Blurred Lines” lawsuit. Nona Gaye, Marvin’s daughter, has heard the two songs and acknowledges that they sound similar. From CBS News:

“I’m not going to lie. I do think they sound alike,” Nona Gaye, Marvin’s 40-year-old daughter, said. However, she added that she wasn’t thinking about the legal implications right now. “We’re not in that space.”
