Portugal. The Man have called out the Jonas Brothers; claiming their new single, 'Sucker' sounds very similar to their chart-topping 'Feel It Still'.
The band wrote "To be fair, the chorus of Feel It Still sounds very similar to Please Mr Postman by the Marvellettes... Which we respectfully cleared and thanked them for every chance we got. As one does". They then tagged the Jonas Brothers.
This message comes after they shared several memes and posts from their 31.2k Twitter followers, also making similar comparisons between the two tunes.
One follower, Jacklyn Krol, questioned whether or not Portugal. The Man were mad at the Jonas Brothers, to which the band replied, saying that they weren't mad, and in fact went on to praise their previous discography, as well as Nick Jonas' solo work.
Not mad at all. Actually dig a lot of their music and Nick’s solo records https://t.co/tjeTMdRpBk— LORDS OF PORTLAND (@portugaltheman) March 7, 2019
While some made jokes about the similarities, many of the Jonas Brothers' fans criticised Portugal. The Man for suggesting the band copied their 2017 chart-topping tune.
