Biography

Los Angeles, United States (1992 – present)

Marques Barrett “Batman” Houston (born August 4, 1981 in Los Angeles, California) is an American R&B singer, rapper, actor and former member of the R&B group Immature, also known as IMx. He founded the group in 1992 along with Young Rome, and they released five studio albums before disbanding in 2002. Houston released his debut solo album, MH, in 2003 and has since released 2005’s Naked, 2007’s Veteran and 2009’s Mr Houston. His fifth solo album, Mattress Music, was released September 14.

Houston sang with his childhood friends, Jerome “Romeo” Jones and Kelton “LDB” Kessee in the group Immature. Chris Stokes became the manager of the group. They first started with the band called Immature. Houston’s Immature nickname “Batman” was given to him for wearing Batman underwear on his head. The group later changed their name to IMx, because they felt they had matured personally and musically. In 2002, IMx mutually disbanded because the members wanted to move on and do different things creatively. Houston inked a record deal with TUG/Universal records and embarked upon his journey of becoming a relevant R&B soloist.

In 2003, Houston recorded and released his first solo album entitled MH. The singles were “That Girl” and “Clubbin (Ft. Joe Budden)”. Houston also appeared on Scream Tour with Nick Cannon, B2k, and Bow Wow.

In 2004, he released two more singles from that album; “Pop That Booty (Ft. Jermaine Dupri) and “Because Of You”.

In 2005, Houston released his sophomore album entitled Naked. The singles from that album were “All Because Of You (Ft. Young Rome)”, “Naked”, and “Sex Wit You”.

    Naked and MH are still one of my fave albums of the 00' decade. I didn't care for for his last two albums but I will most likely listen to the new one 'Famous.'
