Marcus Canty may not have the X-Factor's top honor, but he's definitely got what it takes to succeed in the R&B industry.
The 22-year-old Maryland native just released his debut EP, This is Marcus Canty. The seven-track offering gives fans a good taste of who the former X-Factor contestant truly is.
When news broke last year that Canty had reunited with his mentor LA Reid and signed to Epic Records, the rising star's career had just begun. With a veteran team of producers behind him, This is Marcus Canty, includes the hit single "In and Out" featuring Wale and a host of additional tracks that showcase Canty's soulful singing capability.
