The anticipation behind Marcus Canty’s debut album, “This… Is Marcus Canty,” has been brewing since appearing on the first season of reality TV singing competition, “The X Factor.”
The singer captivated fans and judges, including his mentor, Epic Records’ L.A. Reid, with his soulful crooning. Since signing with Epic on January 2012, Marcus Canty has been crafting his 7-song EP, which includes his single, “In & Out,” featuring Wale, and has been on a 40-city promo tour.
As we come close to the release of Canty’s “This… Is Marcus Canty” (March 5), Billboard’s The Juice is exclusively streaming the project. Listen below.
Marcus Canty not only plans to “keep R&B timeless” with “This… Is Marcus Canty” but also satisfy the ladies specifically. “At the end of the day, you have to make a woman feel special. So my music is geared towards the ladies obviously,” he said.
Fans can check out Canty perform “Used By You” on 106th & Park and at NYC’s J&R Music World on Tuesday.
