"Praise" was an uptempo funk number released by legendary Motown singer Marvin Gaye in the spring of 1981. The song, written by the soul icon, is a celebration of praising God and, as Gaye mentions in the song, is also a dedication to Stevie Wonder, about whom Gaye sang "Stevie, we really dig you/hope you don't mind this riff from you?" The song failed to make the Billboard Hot 100 but became a top 20 single on the R&B singles chart reaching #18 and would be Gaye's last top 40 Billboard single until "Sexual Healing" came out later the next year.
