Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have officially taken a legal L. On Tuesday, a federal jury found that their 2013 hit song “Blurred Lines” infringed on the Marvin Gaye chart-topper “Got to Give It Up“. What’s the damage? Gaye’s children were awarded nearly $7.4 million.

While the record company and rapper T.I. (who was featured on the track) were not affected, jurors found issue with singer/songwriters Pharrell and Robin.
