Marvin Gaye Gets Vulnerable With “Hear My Dear”
Hey music lovers!
As we continue to celebrate Black Music Month, we wanted to take a moment to appreciate Marvin Gaye's album "Here My Dear," which was released in 1978.
This album is often considered one of the most controversial albums of all time. Marvin Gaye wrote and recorded it as a response to his divorce from Anna Gordy Gaye, the sister of Motown founder Berry Gordy.
The album is raw, emotional, and deeply personal. It's a reflection of the pain, anger, and heartbreak that Gaye experienced during his divorce.
Despite its controversial nature, "Here My Dear" is widely regarded as one of Marvin Gaye's best albums. It's a testament to his talent as a songwriter and musician, and a reminder of the power of music to heal and inspire us.
Take some time to listen to "Here My Dear" and appreciate the artistry and emotion that went into its creation. Happy Black Music Month!
