The Jonas Brothers broke the internet last week with “Sucker” and it was pretty much impossible to avoid.
Apparently, the band members of Portugal. The Man listened to the song and thought it sounded a lot like their track “Feel It Still.” They made a tweet about the similarity and even tagged the Jonas Brothers.
“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,” the tweet reads.

We definitely can see where they are coming from when we listen to the track.
The band later clarified their comment when asked if they were “mad” at the Jonas Brothers: “Not mad at all. Actually dig a lot of their music and Nick’s solo records.”

As someone that is a Portugal. the Man fan AND very happy that the Jonas Brothers are back, I do not think Sucker and Feel it Still are at all similar enough for all of this accusation
