Marvin Sease Dies at 64


Marvin Sease died on Tuesday of pneumonia in Vicksburg, Mississippi. He was 64. The performer was famous for his sultry and sexual songs that were often too racy for radio airplay. His most successful single was probably “Candylicker,” which was released in 1987. Music magazine Variety said, “Without the benefit of airplay, this almost single-entendre celebration of sex became a smash hit, and Sease took its title as his professional nickname.” It added, “His funky, unblushing songs cemented his status as an enduring attraction on the black club circuit.” The South Carolina-born singer started out as a gospel singer. He came out with about 20 albums, debuting a self-titled one in 1986 and the last one released in 2008.
