Bruno Mars Is Accused of Plagiarizing Uptown Funk

Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars has been accused of plagiarism. Serbian singer named Viktorija aka Snezana Miskovic, says the duo stole her song titled Ulice Mracne Nisu Za Devojke, which translates as Dark Streets Are Not for Girls. “Their song Uptown Funk contains 80 percent of my tracks. How much of it are you allowed to take as inspiration for your song?” she said. Here we go, another unknown accusing a major label artist of plagiarism to get a few million, right?  Wrong! She has no plan to sue Ronson and Mars at the moment. Instead, she wants the musicians to simply give her the recognition she deserved. “I’m in no hurry to sue them, these processes take a long time, and my life and careers does not depend on lawsuits.”

Here’s the song that they supposedly lifted from:

Here’s Uptown Funk:

Uptown Funk Lyrics:

This hit, that ice cold

Aska’s Ulice Mracne Nisu Za Devojke (The Streets Are Dark for Girls)

(Translated)

Streets dark
not for girls
gates hide
dangerous types

In the darkness, around the corner
I hear the voices
I know you following me
listen steps

A sign under the skin
all the more troubling me
darkness is even darker
I stare, I’m afraid

Streets dark
not for girls
(No, no, no
no, do not be afraid)
gates hide
dangerous types

Ref.
Protect me
to walk me home
I hate the dark streets
and the corners and entrances
and creepy night
