BJ the Chicago Kid Updates Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”

Marvin Gaye’s song “What’s Going On” is getting remixed again, almost 45 years since it’s original release in May of 1971.

The classic Motown album has been re-released as a 10” Vinyl EP, with the original 7” versions of the song, as well as a “Coffeehouse Mix” that was produced by BJ the Chicago Kid.

“Singing alongside Marvin Gaye is truly a dream come true for me,” BJ the Chicago Kid said. “Uncle Marvin is, and will always be one of the greatest. This collaboration also solidifies why I’m here in a time when it is proving to be more difficult for artists to find outlets for music with live vocals and live instrumentation. Marvin Gaye wasn’t only the standard for R&B, he also made a huge impact on pop music & pop culture. Long live R&B…”
