Pharrell Denies Jackin the Beats for “Blurred Lines”

Calvin Klein Collection Post Show Event

Since the release of Robin Thicke’s five million seller “Blurred Lines“, the song’s producer, Pharrell Williams, has been accused of jacking Marvin Gaye’s “Got to Give it Up“. AP caught up with Skateboard P during New York Fashion Week where he disputed the track’s similarities.

“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.”
