Portugal. The Man accuse the Jonas Brothers of copying ‘Feel It Still’

The Jonas Brothers made their highly anticipated comeback last week with ‘Sucker’, and it’s pretty much been unavoidable.

The hit certainly didn’t slip the eyes of Portugal. The Man, who have lashed out at the freshly reunited Jonas Brothers for “copying” their hit track ‘Feel It Still‘.

A Grammy award-winning hit with over 90 million streams to date since it’s 2017 release, it’s easy to see why a musician might want to, ahem, “borrow” a bit of the single.

Portugal. The Man took to Twitter to address the similarities: “To be fair, the chorus of Feel It Still sounds very similar to ‘Please Mister Postman’ by the Marvellettes… which we respectfully cleared and thanked them for every chance we got. As one does.”

The group later elaborated that they weren’t angry at Jonas Brothers, telling their Twitter followers: “Not mad at all. Actually, dig a lot of their music and Nick’s solo records.”

The Jonas Brothers are yet to respond to the accusation.
