I'll Quit Music if Found Guilty of Copying Marvin Gaye Song - Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran, the British singer and songwriter, has made a bold statement that he will quit music if found guilty of copying Marvin Gaye’s song ‘Let’s Get it On’.

The accusation was made by Townsend’s heirs, who claimed that Sheeran lifted a four-chord progression from the soul classic in his song ‘Thinking Out Loud’.

They are seeking $100 million in restitution, alleging that there are “striking similarities” between the two tracks.

However, Sheeran has denied the claim of infringing upon Gaye and Townsend’s 1973 hit.

He called the claim “insulting” and stated that he finds it demeaning to have someone diminish his life’s work as a performer and songwriter.

When asked about the toll the trial is taking on him, he replied that if found guilty, he would quit music altogether.
