I Heard It Through the Grapevine is the ninth solo studio album
 by soul musician Marvin Gaye, released on August 26, 1968 on 
the Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records. Originally released
 as In the Groove, it was the first solo studio album Gaye released

as a successful duet partner with female R&B singers such as 
Kim Weston and Tammi Terrell. The album and its title track are
considered both as Gaye's commercial breakthrough.
