Portugal. The Man have accused Jonas Brothers of copying “Feel It Still” on their new comeback single, “Sucker.”
“Feel It Still” was highly-charted around the world upon its 2017 release, gaining over 90 million streams to date and winning a Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. While the indie band admitted on Twitter that the song sounds similar to The Marvellettes “Please Mister Postman,” they also called out the similarity with Jonas Brothers’ new tune.
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. @jonasbrothers

They later went on to deny that they were angry at the sibling trio, explaining to fans on Twitter that they were “Not mad at all. Actually dig a lot of their music and Nick’s solo records.”
Take a listen to both tunes below.
