The best 2015 Radio Hits






"Marvin Gaye" is the debut single recorded, produced and co-written by American singer Charlie Puth. It was released on February 10, 2015 by Atlantic Records, and features guest vocals by Meghan Trainor. Puth co-wrote the song with Julie Frost. The song has topped the charts in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Syria, France and New Zealand, peaked within the top-five in Australia, the top ten in major European nations, and reached the top 40 in Austria, Canada, and Puth's native United States.

Puth revealed during an interview with Billboard that he had come up with the drumbeat for "Marvin Gaye" while sitting at a cafe in Hollywood. He also spoke about how the collaboration with Trainor came about, commenting, "Meghan and I were at a party one night, and we were exchanging the new music, and she heard "Marvin Gaye" and asked, "Who else is singing on this? It should be a duet. Let me sing on it!" So I'm like ... OK, Meghan Trainor just asked me to sing on my song, absolutely! In one day, she knew the whole thing. We did it all in one take." The song samples the bassline from "Stand by Me" by Ben E. King.

"Marvin Gaye" is a reference to the eponymous iconic soul singer with "the lyrics of the tune being an effort to spark romance and get that special someone in the mood, just as many Gaye slow jams have done for millions in the past". The song is also notable for being Trainor's first release without writing credits. The collaboration led to Puth's appearance as one of Trainor's dates in the music video for her single "Dear Future Husband".
