Marvin Gaye's What's Going On was a landmark recording and is considered one of the greatest albums ever made. Rolling Stone named it Album Of The Year when it came out and, in 2003, it was ranked No. 6, the highest for a non-rock album, in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. Originally, the title cut was recorded as a single, and Motown chief Berry Gordy refused to release it, citing that it was too personal and political. "What's Going On" became Motown's fastest-selling single at that point, going to the No. 1 spot on the R&B charts for five weeks and No. 2 for three weeks on the Pop listings, which led Gordy to request a full album's worth of material.
