About the song
The song was originally a hit single by soul musician Marvin Gaye, released on the Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records on 15 June 1973.
Marvin Gaye's version features funk instrumentation by The Funk Brothers, with romantic and sexual lyricism.
"Let's Get It On" became Gaye's most successful single for Motown and one of his most well-known songs. With the help of the song's sexually-explicit content, "Let's Get It On" helped give Gaye a reputation as a sex icon during its initial popularity.
