You're the Man is a posthumous studio album by American singer Marvin Gaye, originally intended to be released in 1972 as the follow-up to What's Going On. It was released on March 29, 2019, through Motown, Universal Music Enterprises, and Universal Music Group to celebrate what would have been Gaye's 80th birthday on April 2, 2019. The album includes the single of the same name, as well as the intended original album in full and other songs Gaye recorded at the time.

Album You're the Man. The World Is Rated X (Alternate Mix) Lyrics. Oh, the world's situation Should be rated X, rated X Said, the world's situation Should be rated X, yeah, rated X Listen, people. Not only in the movie shows Take a look outside, it's where the truth is really told It's life in living color Fighting, killing and dope dealing, it's everywhere. The one thing that really bothers me the most Is how we calmly take the lives of other folk The world today is in a grave situation Dirty water we can't drink, dirty air, it's so unfair -na-na-na-na Baby, something is missing all over the world It's alright, it's okay You and me, baby, can withstand All the sin and corruption this land We got love, we got peace If we could hold it, spread it all over world. Oh, then the world's situation Won't be rated X, rated X Do you hear me?

But Gaye recorded The World is Rated X at a moment marked by the growing popularity of blaxploitation films like Superfly. Even Black Panther Party revolutionary Huey Newton lambasted these films as y, admonishing the way that children and teens replaced their late ’60s prideful black power afros and dashikis for Superfly’s degradingly stereotypical fashion of coke-spoon necklaces and pimp fedoras. In that void, black musicians like Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, and Stevie Wonder emerged as quasi-Messianistic, ethical figures in the community. In its highs and lows, You’re the Man-a self-canceled/lost Marvin Gaye album that has now arrived 47 years later in the midst of cancel culture-is a fascinating glimpse into what one of the great pop music artists of the 20th century strategically allowed the culture to see-and what he didn’t.

Marvin Gaye’s 1972 lost album, You’re the Man, will finally be released March 29th, just days before what would’ve been the musician’s 80th birthday, April 2nd. You’re the Man was supposed to be the follow-up to Gaye’s 1971 classic, What’s Going On. Gaye recorded the tracks for the would-be record in Detroit and Los Angeles during a particularly prolific period, but none of them – save the titular single – were released at the time. Side 1 1. You’re The Man 2. The World Is Rated X 3. Piece of Clay 4. Where Are We Going? Side 2 1. I’m Gonna Give You Respect 2. Try It, You’ll Like It 3. You Are That Special One 4. We Can Make It Baby. Side 3 1. My Last Chance (Salaam Remi mix) 2. Symphony (Salaam Remi mix) 3. I’d Give My Life For You (Salaam Remi mix) 4. Woman of the World 5. Christmas In the City (instrumental).

As noted above, if you’re a Marvin Gaye completist, there won’t be all that much here that’s new to you-many of the tracks collected, like The World Is Rated X, I’m Going Home (Move), and We Can Make It Baby, have been previously released on boxed sets like 1995’s The Master: 1961-1984 or as. bonus tracks on various deluxe reissues.

In early 1972, Marvin Gaye should have been on top of the world. The previous year, he had wrested control of his career from Motown’s draconian hit-making system, winning a bitter battle to get What’s Going On released as a single: the song Motown boss Berry Gordy claimed was the worst piece of crap I ever heard spent five weeks at No 1 in the US R&B chart. The album of the same name had sold a million copies, been nominated for two Grammys and redefined perceptions of Motown both externally and internally. At other sessions, however, Gaye behaved as though he thought Gordy might have had a point, meekly returning to Motown business as usual.
