Teairra Mari Tries to Stage A Comeback


Singer Teairra Mari, former Princess of the ROC, is on the comeback trail. A new track from the singer, No No No, is featured on her Myspace page as well as several new promo shots. As you all know, Teairra had a very short tenure with Rockafella Records and was eventually dropped after her first and only album, failed to garner the attention and sales the label hoped it would. Not one to give up, the singer is back with a new label, new sound, and a new part-time gig as the face and backside of Jean Addicts, a new clothing line from former B2K member Lil’ Fizz.

Teairra’s as yet untitled new CD is expected to drop sometime this summer and will feature production from all the current hitmakers, including Bryan Michael Cox, Timbaland, Scott Storch, Polow Da Don, and even Solange Knowles.

  1. I dunno. I wasn’t really feeling her the first time around. Maybe this time?

  2. She is pretty. I’ll give her that, but she brings nothing to the game. Her songs are mediocre at best and too ghetto. Rihanna took her shine and the world doesn’t need another Rihanna.

  3. This is just a waste of time. I swear Black music is dead.

  4. i did buy her album they made her too grown she was cussing and what not i was liked where can she go from here. i did like phone booth cant remember any other songs other than make her fell good and daddy (which i hated blaming not having a fast around for being a hot tail girl is a cop out!!) i wish her luck if they can take the time with Rhianna then surely this girl can have another go because honestly i only liked Rhianna first album.

  5. Too mediocre in every way, even her sound is like yawn.

    Maybe she must find something else to do, but good luck anyway

  6. She has talent. Go to Youtube and watch the performance she did with Rihanna and Amerie to honor Destiny’s Child. She had an exciting stage presence. She’s just just young and needs some development. Rihanna was new on the scene for this particular performance, and she did not deliver a good show. Teiarra Mari and Amerie did a decent job however. I’ll give this young woman a chance. I just hope she comes out with better songs. Her last album was too grown and a bit ghetto.

  7. There is nothing distinctive about this track “No, No, No” or whatever. She has a nice voice, but isn’t really using it in this song. I remember ‘reading’ about her ‘before’ she came out like in VIBE magazine. I think she was featured in their “NEXT” segment, but I never heard much after that. I’m not familiar with her music while she was at Rocafella; not really familiar with her at all. I wish her luck.

  8. TEEDA: Do you honestly think Teiarra Mari did a good job at that show? Ummmm NO! Did you see the way she rushed down the stairs OFF BEAT way ahead and out of step before Rihanna and Amerie? I thought that performance showed that Rihanna and Teiarra needed development then, but my girl Amerie did a damn good job!

    Besides that, anything Teiarra brings… I’m not interested. And I agree with Waverly… Black music does seem to be dead for some reason… =0(

  9. i think she sounds like beyonce on the first album and so does rihanna

  10. She’s ok but I hope she got what it take this time. I mean Jay Z dropped her.

  11. AT THE TIME SHE WAS DROPPED BOTH HER AND RIHANNA CDS FLOPPED. IM SO MADE THEY CHOSE RIHANNA OVER HER. SHE CAN SING BETTER THAN RIHANNA, BUT RIHANNA WAS MORE APPEALING IN MAIN STREAM MEDIA.

  12. TOY: I said Teiarra Mari did a decent job. If I thought she did a great job, I would have said that. I think she has potential if she tweeks a few things. I won’t trash this girl before giving her a chance, but that’s just my opinion. If you don’t like her, that’s cool. Amerie was a more seasoned artist at the time, and I expected for her to steal the show. Amerie is a better all-around artist than the other two girls, even though she’s not as famous as Rihanna.

  13. Black music is dead because artists are uninspired and too busy trying to make money – and not GOOD music.

  14. NOT TO TURN THIS INTO AN AMERIE POST BUT TEEDA I TOTALLY AGREE. AMERIE IS A VERY TALENTED, YET UNDERRATED ARTIST. I MEAN SHE SINGS AND DANCES, AND SHE HAS MORE TO TALK ABOUT THAN GOING TO THE CLUB, AND HOW MANY TIMES HER MAN CHEATED. SHE’S DIFFERENT, AND SADLY THE WORLD DOES NOT LIKE DIFFERENT, WHICH IS WHY ALL THE MEDIOCRE ARTISTS GET AIRPLAY AND THE PEOPLE WITH TALENT GET PUT ON THE BACK BURNER. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL THE MUSIC INDUSTRY HAS TURNED INTO. BUT TIERRA DEFINITELY SOUNDS BETTER THAN RIHANNA SO LET’S SEE WHAT SHE DOES

  15. I have to admit I only remember one song from her and it wasn’t all that good to me. It didn’t stand out.

    As for Black music being dead. I have to disagree with you all who said that. “Good” Black Music is alive, the problem is that artists with substance are not being showcased like other “mainstream” artists. Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Raheem DeVaughn, Lyfe Jennings, Kem, Chrissette (sp?) Michelle, Ledisi, and the lists goes on and on. We just have to make sure we are supporting these artists that are giving us good music. Sadly, we have to seek and find them.

  16. @Nesh Nesh &
    MRS.JONES:

    I totally agree with you… By and large the world doesn`t like non-conformists. However, just because the norm is the norm doesn`t necessarily make it RIGHT or even BETTER!!! On the same point that Nesh Nesh made; these artists are more interested in the bling bling instead of trying to cultivate their art. Then again a lot of them are talentless anyway so what is there to cultivate? They`re talentless with no development which makes for a BAD combination. I keep harping on it but it`s so true, good R&B and good music in general is long gone. That`s why as a whole record sales are way down from what they were. The music industry is now more interested in promoting an IMAGE rather than ARTISTIC ability… It definitely is sad and a waste of time(my time anyway)to lend your ears to such GARBAGE…

    That`s why I no longer listen to the typical urban radio stations because I`m fed up with the lack of artistic ability, lyrically as well as vocally. There`s a handful of artists who they play in heavy rotation and you can damn near set your watch by it, it`s that predictable. I`ve had it and I wouldn`t care if they didn`t sell another single CD. It will take a strong voice from the consumers to take back the music industry. All I know is that I will not partake of this FOOLISHNESS… They can put it out there but I sure as hell don`t have to listen….. Now that is my RANT for today!!!

  17. @wpc, thank you that is what i thought at the time. like how can she get dropped when both artists sucked. and riri couldn’t even sing on key. i thought teairra mari had a lot to say, but she was too grown for her audience. also i believe her life had been a little rough. not keyshia cole rough, but a lot father issues and stuff like that.

  18. Terence, I couldn’t have said it better! You hit the nail on the head.

  19. I wish no bad luck on her, but someone could grab a girl out of the mall and say “Meet Teairra Mari” and I wouldn’t blink an eye. But not one to simply not give her chance, I listened to her new song. Blah, another cheatin’, can’t get with me, do me wrong song. If you’re going to sing about an unoriginal theme, then I at least need an original sound. Also, she’s sounding too much like a knock-off Ciara. And if that’s the case, I’ll just listen to Ciara.

    But, Yeah, Good Luck with that.

  20. i don’t like her, and karma got her i beleive she thought she was a huge superstar already and i think she was very catty with rihanna

  21. Damn give the girl a chance yall are ass hole and dont understand music… go TEARIRRA and fuck all these haters on here @lease you trying girl gogogogogogog with that HIT “NO NO NO”!!

  22. Stop hating, are you being sarcastic?! She is amazingly wack. I also feel sorry for the state of black music. He goes another ghetto bad girl our nieces, daughters, and cousins can look up to.

  23. I never heard of this girl. I think if Mariah can have a big hit with”Touch My Body” then this child can have a hit with “No, No, No”. I am going to go out on a limb (no chainsaws, please) and say this Tea maybe the comeback kid of the year.LOL

  24. Teairra’s debut album was definitely not too grown and not ghetto. “Make her feel good” is about her wanting to be treated with respect by boys. “No daddy” states even though her father wasn’t present in her life, she didn’t become a product of her environment and turn into a stripper. She was 17 years old when she completed her first album. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t see any 17 year old girls dropping knowledge the way Teairra did on her debut album. Unlike Rihanna, Teairra puts out music that is about positive female empowerment. Rihanna is a pussy because she doesn’t make music you can feel. Rihanna mmakes music based on what her label tells her to make. She’s basically a black Britney Spears, but at least Britney can dance and perform well on stage. Teairra Mari has a great vocal range and when given the chance, she will be able to give strength to girls who hate their life because of an abusive man or absent father.
