The female rap group Sequence are claiming Mars and Ronson stole elements of their Grammy winning smash 'Uptown Funk' from their 1979 song 'Funk You Up.'

The group, which consisted of Angie Stone (yes, that one) Cheryl the Pearl and Blondie (no, not that one) have warned Mars and Ronson about similarities in the two songs' hooks, but haven't filed a lawsuit yet.
