Since launching “Blurred Lines” in 2013, Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have actually dealt with debate for all sorts of factors.
In 2015, the 2 artists were purchased to posthumously award Marvin Gaye a songwriting credit on the tune, after a federal jury discovered them accountable for copyright violation.
The songwriting procedure was likewise a subject of dispute, with Robin declaring that he played a big function in producing the single, something he later on confessed was incorrect.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, he admitted to lying about his contributions to the tune throughout the copyright violation trial, stating, “I was envious and I desired a few of the credit … I attempted to take credit for it later on because [Williams] composed the entire thing basically by himself and I was jealous of that.”
Then, there are the questionable lyrics, which got the tune prohibited at main occasions for more than 20 British universities. Critics of the tune argued that the lyrics promoted a culture of date rape, pointing out lines such as, “But you’re a good girl/The way you grab me/Must wanna get nasty.”
