The video, which is for Gaye’s song “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” is co-directed by Jonathan Heap and Curtis Elerson, and finds the artist ultimately wooing a woman (portrayed by his wife, Wendy Gaye) he saw in a restaurant. The video also features multiple scenes of Gaye in front of a mural dedicated to his father.

The song, which features D’Extra Wiley is the only one available on streaming services.

The video was first shared on Twitter on Sunday afternoon by @Tmtisclutch, with the user writing: “Anyway, here’s Marvin Gaye’s son’s music. Just a little something to carry you guys through the week.”

By Monday morning, Questlove had shared @Tmtisclutch’s tweet with the video alongside the following caption: “Blurred Lines Wept.”

In related news, Marvin Gaye’s estate has released the first-ever music video for the title track of What’s Going On.

Released Friday as the first installment of Universal Music Group’s “Never Made” project — providing visuals for classic cuts that were never fitted with one upon initial release — the Savannah Leaf-directed video allows the poignant and politically-charged sentiments of Gaye’s classic to resonate in 2019 as a call-to-action. The clip plays a performance of the track over vignettes that tackle Flint’s ongoing water crisis, underscore racial tensions, police brutality, soaring healthcare costs, and the traumatic effect of mass shootings in our schools.
