For over 20 years, Richard Marx has consistently and powerfully made his mark on the music industry. His self-titled debut album, which included the single "Don't Mean Nothing," kicked off his career as a solo artist in 1987 and went on to sell 3 million copies. His 1989 follow-up album, "Repeat Offender," was even more successful, selling over 7 million copies worldwide. From 1987 to 1990, he became the first male solo artist in history to have his first 7 singles reach the top 5 on Billboard's singles chart, and three of those singles ("Hold On to the Nights," "Satisfied," and the worldwide classic, "Right Here Waiting") were actually number-one hits. This feat remains unchallenged to this day.
