Marvin Gaye, released as the third and final single from his 1971landmark album, " What's Going On". Written by Gaye and James Nyx, the song depicted the ghettosof inner-cityAmerica as it discussed how the bleak situation would lead to someone wanting to holler and throw ones hands up. The song was recorded in a mellow funkstyle with Gaye playing piano. Several of the Funk Brothersalso contributed, including Eddie "Bongo" Brown, and bassist Bob Babbitt.
The song helped Gaye make history by being one of the few artists to have three or more Top 10 songs off Billboard's Pop Singles chart peaking at #9 and one of the first to have three consecutive #1 hits on Billboard's R&B Singles chart where it stayed for two weeks. Although not certified by the RIAA at that time, all three releases from the "
What's Going On" album gained Gold status by selling over a million copies in the United States.
