Marx achieved his first breakthrough in 1987 upon releasing his debut single, “Don’t Mean Nothing.” The song peaked at 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the Adult Contemporary Songs chart.

After the remarkable success of his debut album, Marx dropped his sophomore effort, Repeat Offender, in 1989. The album topped the Billboard 200 chart and performed phenomenally on the charts in nine other countries. The album notably featured two number 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles, “Satisfied” and “Right Here Waiting.” The hits’ success led to over four million copies sold Repeat Offender, earning four-time platinum status in the U.S.
During the ‘90s, Marx continued to drop hits, such as “Hazard,” “Take This Heart,” and “Now and Forever.” In 1997, he performed the soundtrack single for the Anastasia film with Donna Lewis, titled “At the Beginning.” The song charted at number 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 2 on the Adult Contemporary Song chart.
