what bracket do you think Marvin Gaye would have achieved. 50-80 million? he has some monster tunes and has pretty decent streams

also I’m very excited for Stevie Wonder’s study because I grew up with his music and I’ve recently gotten into the iconic Motown acts (hence why I’m curious about Marvin Gaye’s sales)
