Mark Ronson accused of ripping off another song for ‘Uptown Funk’

Written by  PETER SBLENDORIO

It's the same old song.

Music producer Mark Ronson is facing yet another lawsuit accusing him of ripping off elements of a song and using them for his 2014 megahit, "Uptown Funk," TMZ reported.

The latest allegations come from the company Lastrada Entertainment, which claims Ronson's song clearly sounds like the 1980 track "More Bounce to the Ounce," which was created by their client, funk group Zapp & Roger.

The lawsuit asserts that the first 48 seconds of "Uptown Funk," which features Bruno Mars on the vocals, is especially similar to “More Bounce to the Ounce.”

Lastrada reportedly filed the lawsuit against Ronson, Sony and popular music providers Apple and Spotify in an effort to stop the song from being played or sold moving forward. The company is also seeking unspecified damages, according to the gossip site.

Mars was not included in the lawsuit.

In the legal filing, Lastrada contends that Ronson has referred to the members of Zapp & Roger as being influences, according to the report.
