We're not sure if the iconic Argentine rock star, Charly Garcia, is trying to stay relevant or what, but he's calling out Bruno Mars and, though we're fans of both, we're not cool with it.
Garcia, whose trajectory spans 50 years, is considered one of the most influential singers in the Spanish rock scene. He's a very big deal in LATAM, trust me. While he's a reputable artist, and everyone loves him and his piano, Garcia is also known for being very spontaneous in interviews.
Most recently, he called out Bruno Mars for allegedly stealing one of his jams titled Fanky from his 1989 album Como conseguir chicas.
According to Billboard Argentina, Garcia accused Mars and Mark Ronson of plagiarism and claimed that they owe him $2 million for copying Fanky and dropping Uptown Funk.
Apparently, Ronson's track featuring Mars, which was #1 for 14 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 list in 2015, has the same accords and riff as Garcia's song. He also claims the music video is a copy of his.
"Besides, this guy stole my clothes and the house, because I lived in Greenwich; And even the dance moves in the video!," he told Billboard. There's even a mashup of the two. Check it out below!
On the other hand, it seems as if Bruno Mars has not gotten the memo because he hasn't made any comments in regards to this claim. We do, however, believe that once he listens to the iconic Charly Garcia, he'd want to do a bomb collaboration.
