A Los Angeles jury has determined that singers Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke lifted portions of Marvin Gaye's 1977 hit "Got to Give It Up" when writing their hit "Blurred Lines." The jury has awarded the late soul singer's family nearly $7.4 million in damages.

"Blurred Lines" topped the charts in 2013. At the time, there was much speculation about the similarities between Gaye's classic and the new song. Nonetheless, it was wildly successful.
