Marques Houston is planning to do it big in 2013. Besides preparing his sixth solo album, Famous, the singer, songwriter, and actor will also embark on a thirteen-city tour this summer with his all-female backing band and star in a new role on the UP TV movie, "The Love Letter" (August 2013).

The forthcoming album is led by the single "Give Your Love A Try," featuring L.A. rapper Problem. The album, dropping on Silent Partner Entertainment/Shanachie Entertainment, will continue to showcase the former Immature crooner's artistry "with a sensual, evocative Marvin Gaye meets D’Angelo feel."

Marques upcoming thirteen-city tour will coincide with the album's release, and will see him rocking clubs around the country with "UnPlugged"-style jam sessions.
