Marvin Gaye on R&B and Pop

crumblingaura:

Marvin Gaye on why mainstream black singers want to be Pop and not R&B:

"Pop meant selling whites, and R&B or soul meant selling the sisters and brothers back in the neighborhood. Everyone wanted to sell whites ‘cause whites got the most money. Our attitude was—-give us some. It’s that simple."

— From Divided Soul: The Life of Marvin Gaye, David Ritz
