Even though Pharrell is engaged in a battle with Marvin Gaye’s estate over Robin Thicke’s megahit “Blurred Lines,” he wants to make one thing clear — he has incredible respect for the late soul legend.

The hit making singer, songwriter and producer collaborated with Thicke on the No. 1 smash, which some say sounds similar to Gaye’s “Got to Give it Up.”

Last month, Pharrell, Thicke and the song’s other collaborator, T.I., filed a lawsuit asking a judge to determine that it does not copy Gaye’s song and a song by George Clinton.

Speaking to The Associated Press on Thursday night, Pharrell says the two songs are completely different and not even in the same key.

But he adds that he is a huge fan of Gaye and that he’s “the king of all kings.”
