Midnight Love is the eighteenth and final studio album by American singer songwriter Marvin Gaye, originally released in October 1982 via Columbia Records.

Midnight Love was the first album released with Columbia Records after his contract with Motown Records was completed, and was to become the last album to be released before his passing in April 1984.

Midnight Love contains elements of funk, boogie, Caribbean music, reggae, new wave and synth-pop, as well as older genres such as soul, R&B and doo-wop. The reason for these many genres was because, Gaye's music was "progressing" and that it was "changing and it had to change because he didn't want any more ties to Motown".

The album spawned the smash hit single “Sexual Healing”, which won Gaye his first two Grammy Awards including Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, in February 1983, and also won Gaye an American Music Award in the R&B-soul category. People magazine called it "America's hottest musical turn-on since Olivia Newton-John demanded we get Physical."

Midnight Love was released to record stores a day after the single's release, and was equally successful, peaking at the top ten on the US Billboard 200 albums chart and becoming Gaye's eighth #1 album on the US Top Black Albums chart, eventually selling over six million copies worldwide, three million alone in the U.S.

The album is regarded as one of the most influential albums to be released in the 1980s.

This album is a "We are Vinyl" series 2018 reissue on black vinyl with a download code, pressed in Europe via Columbia Records.
