Berry Gordy — Thank You, Marvin Gaye … For the Best Song I Almost Killed (VIDEO)

EXCLUSIVE

Berry tried like hell to steer Marvin away from recording “What’s Going On” — too political for the early 70s, he thought — but he explained how Gaye finally won the argument.

Sorry Berry, but we gotta say … Best. Loss. Ever.
