Saturday Night Live - Season 40

The original six songwriters credited with the creation of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” will now have to split their royalties with another five artists.  “Billboard” reports that The Gap Band, which includes brothers Charlie, Ronnie and Robert Wilson, filed a claim with YouTube earlier this year over similarities to its 1970 funk hit “Oops Upside Your Head.”  RCA Records has agreed to give The Gap Band songwriting credit on “Uptown Funk,” bringing the individual royalty cut for each artist down even more.  The hit song had a 14-week run on the Billboard Hot 100 and its YouTube video has amassed over 595-million views.
