You all remember Teairra Mari don’t you? She was the 17 year old sista Jay-Z signed to Def Jam just about the same time as Rihanna. Well we all know what became of Rihanna. But poor Teairra was dropped from Def Jam after releasing her first album and no one has seen or heard from the sista since- until now that is. Teairra, now 20, left a message on her MySpace Page letting fans know that new music from her would be forthcoming. The sista says her new CD should be available sometime in July with the first single hitting the airwaves in early May. The album boasts production from Polow da Don and Scott Storch with rumored guest appearances by Trina and Missy Elliott.
Too mature songs are in my opinion are what led to poor sales of Teairra’s first CD. Whereas Rihanna released age appropriate music Teairra was singing about wanting “Ni**as” to make her feel good. Hopefully her new production team and record label will learn from prior mistakes and take a different approach while promoting such young sista this time around (Yes 20 is still young).
Make Her Feel Good
