Teairra Marí Update

Published: Wednesday 30th May 2007 by Sam
Ever since hearing about the ‘amicable’ split between Teairra Mari and Roc-A-Fella Records, I have been wondering where the Detroit singer has been. After having some success with hits ‘Make A Girl Feel’ and ‘No Daddy’ back in 2005, Mari kinda disappeared. When she debuted, Def Jam president Jay-Z touted her as the ‘Princess of The Roc’; so many were surprised when the label quietly released her in October 2006 – especially since her sophomore album ‘Second Round’ was already completed. Since then, Mari has signed a deal with Interscope Records and is set to release her 2nd album in the summer. The first single from the set is scheduled to drop anytime from now.Though many criticised Teairra’s first album for being too sexually suggestive i.e. ‘Make A Girl Feel’ (she was 17 when it was released), I enjoyed the CD. Aside from the singles, tracks like the Darkchild produced ‘Stay in Ya Lane’ were hot. I’m hoping she does well this time around as there are less-talented artists out now who are selling.

Will you be checking for Teairra?

    Sorry Mya isn’t with Interscope anymore, she left in 2005, she’s with Universal Motown now. But Interscope did ALOT for Mya when she was their, becuz Ron Fair really like her as an artist. We opened many doors for her and got her pivotal movie roles. But since he’s President of Geffen now, I’m not to sure how Interscope is doing but if u ask me they’ve fallen off since other arists have left them as well like Mya & Eve, and others.
    But Teairra makes some good music, it just wasn’t age appropriate, but I hope she comes back strong, and really sell this time around.

    Teairra Mari’s 1st single was HOT!! Everyone was bumping it and the beat was sick. I still play her “didnt get much play” Phone Booth. Had that blasting down in Houston last year at All Star and everyone was asking who it was. With the right production I think shell be ok.

    I’m happy for Teairra, I hope this time around her new label give her the right treatment, because Rocafella/DefJam did her dirty. She’s not a bad singer at all, she no how to make a good record, and she have stage presence going for herself, so she should do good this time around….and Teairra is no where near whack, Whack is someone thats making corny songs and can’t sing, but she’s getting away with it because she’s cute…Take a guess??

    Actually , u guys she stated on her myspace page that she is still on Roca-Fella but parted ways from DEF JAM , So I guess roca-fella / interscope wil do a joint venture for her future projects.

    Interscope just signed Claudette Ortiz from City High and they reportedly signed Brandy.

    but they dropped Olivia who is in talks with Def Jam and Virgin Records
