    “i don’t know where it puts him sexually” LMAO that was nasty but straight to the point.

    An R&B singer – eff that – a MALE singer has to be appealing to the female audience in order to be successful. Adam Lambert failed to sell and got dropped by his label because of that reason, nothing else.

    Marcus has a great voice and tone, I enjoyed his material so far (In&Out is a baaaangeer!) But clearly something is off. He needs to be more edgy, more confident, more in-your-face, more charismatic, more risqué. And yes, definitely, definitely, sexier. Miguel made that transition with great success and we see the wonders it did to his career.

    I’m sure he’ll get there but he needs to hurry up. The stage is quite empty so it’s up to him to take advantage of it.

    I agree with others on this post. He’s not s*** at all. He be clowing too much too. He needs to get more sensual. Perhaps he should channel Sam Cooke, but in more urban 2013 way. There you go Marcus, I just dropped you a jewel. Now run with it. I like the song tho.

    I so don’t agree. An R&B singer can make QUALITY MUSIC, not talk about s** too much, not be s*** and still sell albums.
    It’s just that they all use the same potion each times. So nobody knows but i believe it’s absolutely possible with the RIGHT artist !
