It's one of the most iconic songs in R'n'B history, but prepare to hear Marvin Gaye's 'What's Going On' like you've never heard it before ...

Someone has isolated the Prince of Soul's vocals on the song - and it is three minutes of pure power.

With guitars and other instruments stripped away, the song is carried just by the natural magic of his voice.

The song - which was co-written by Renaldo 'Obie' Benson, Al Cleveland and Gaye - sold over two million copies and stayed at number one for five weeks on the Billboard R&B charts.
