X Factor's Marcus Canty New Single

The ‘X Factor’ contestant came in fourth, and I think America made the right decision! Good voice, but the song is a bit boring! Listen here!

Marcus Canty‘s newly released single, “Won’t Make A Fool Out Of You,” is a smooth and sensual R&B ballad, BUT it wasn’t very memorable. I have to give the 21-year-old props because he is talented; he sounds like a combination of Usher and Mario. He would be much more memorable if he sings dance hits, just like his X Factor performance of “Pretty Young Thing” — now that was hot, so step up your game, Marcus!

The single will be on Marcus’s debut album released by Epic Records later this year and the title is yet to be announced. Let’s hope we hear some more upbeat songs Marcus! He has the voice, but he just has to prove he’s worthy of being compared to Usher. He has it in him, so I wanna see it!
