R&B singer Marvin Sease, who is mostly known for his sexually explicit songs, died on February 8 in Vicksburg, Miss., at the age of 64. It has been reported that southern soul singer Marvin Sease died after suffering from pneumonia.

Ironically, Marvin Sease started his musical career as a gospel singer, but later moved to R&B circuit where he formed his own blues band. The biggest hit of Marvin Sease was his 1987 song "Candylicker", which later became a smash sexy hit and its title became his professional name.

In 1986, the career of Marvin Sease took a positive turn with the release of a self-titled album with the popular track of "Ghetto Man". Throughout his career, Marvin Sease never made up to upper reaches of chart, but his unique funky style made him a hit on female board and black club circuits.

Among his 20 albums, Marvin Sease touched the bottom of the charts in 1991 with his hit "Tonight".
