Album Review

She wears a tiara and is named Teairra, which rhymes with Ciara. She occasionally sounds like Teena Marie and will probably be confused with Ciara. As you can see and might hear, Teairra Marí comes off like a strange ploy to cause as much confusion as possible. This was made evident once her first single, "Make Her Feel Good," began to make the rounds. Even without knowing her name — practically an anagram for Teena Marie — it wouldn't have been impossible to think of Lady T. Over a minimal production from Sean Garrett (Destiny's Child, Mario, Omarion) that struts off the tinny chime from Eric B. & Rakim's "My Melody," Marí's assertive pout is reminiscent of her elder's "I Need Your Lovin'," "Midnight Magic," and "Lovergirl." And the elusive, flirtatious essence of "Make Her Feel Good" isn't much different from that of Ciara's "Goodies" and "Oh" — so it's wholly appropriate that Teairra and Ciara rhyme. Dubbed "the Princess of the Roc" by Roc-A-Fella administrator Jay-Z, Marí nonetheless has a lot of momentum behind her that should help prevent lost-in-the-shuffle status. Only 17 and raised just south of 8 Mile in Detroit, Marí is helped by Rodney Jerkins, Bryan-Michael Cox, Kwamé, Trackboyz, Poli Paul, and Cool & Dre, not to mention Jay-Z, who introduces "Make Her Feel Good." Despite her age and the amount of assistance, she sounds seasoned and in charge, entirely aware of who she is and what she's capable of doing. There's too much feeling, too much knowing — in her voice to enable the common kneejerk criticism that she's merely a puppet with all the right connections. A lean album at 45 minutes (with no guest verses or anything ending in "-lude"), at least five of its songs deserve as much play as the lead single, all of which are different enough from one another (both lyrically and sonically) to establish Marí as one to watch.

Customer Reviews

If 50 Cent and Britney Spears had a child?

Absolutely adorable, but hard as hell. 'No Daddy' is the hottest track of the fall. You have to see the video (also available on iTunes) to understand her broad appeal. I'd put this track up there with M.I.A.'s 'Galang' as examples of how the new millenium is about a more raw pop reality, one that is pure female. The men have had their day in the sun posturing, intimidating, bragging, etc... Teairra Mari, M.I.A., and Ebony Eyez are here to put it in perspective for all of us, with beats that that punctuate the message.

Great album!!!

Roc-A-Fell Presents: Teairra Mari... Straight up... I mean I already knew she was hott. But dang... she actually got some skillz! There ain't nothin' dull about the cd! Str8 fire all the way... 1. Make Her Feel Good - Killer beat going on here. Didn't really need Jay in the beginning talking though. Her sound is hott.... 2. No Daddy - Crazy... Just crazy... Tells a story of how she came up. 3. New S*** - Okay so this is a break up song... The beat is decent though... 4. Stay In Ya Lane - Bonkers... Should of been the first single... The beat is sick, her vocals are sick... 5. Act Right - Well okay the beat is decent... But perhaps this track can be skipped... 6. M.V.P. - Another crazy beat... It's like she's not R&B... She something else... and it's hott... 7. LaLa - This is a crazy dream world type beat. 8. Get Down Tonight - Get in your car and turn his up... Whoever produced the beats on this album deserves a award... 9. Phone Booth - Hmm... Well okay another one that can be skipped... Story about her man and her mother... 10. Confidential - Again, get in your car and turn this up!!! This one's hott... She get's intimate with the listener. 11. Get Up On Ya Gangsta - You expect Jay-Z to start flowing to this... It's a beat he'd use. Crazy beat... 12. No Daddy (Remix) - She closed this cd perfectly... The beat is bananas... So thats my review... Bottom line... This ablum should be bought... This girl is gangsta for 17... You ain't gonna get no other artist out there who holds it down like this... Naw... Hands down she kills it. This girl should be platinum!

She is hot and has a lot of talent

For a first album this is off the hook. The best songs are get up on your gangsta, stay in ya lane, and make her feel good. But all of the songs are good. She has the talent to ride with the people of roc a fella. I can't wait til her next one.

Biography

Born: December 2, 1987 in Detroit, MI

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '00s, '10s

With a name that's nearly an anagram for "Teena Marie," Teairra Marí broke out nationally in 2005 with a single titled "Make Her Feel Good." Upon hearing the song, you could've been forgiven for thinking that the Teena Marie connection runs a little deeper, considering Marí's pouty delivery and assertive lyrics. Actually a Detroit native with no genetic relationship to her elder, Marí's first release was an EP issued through the independent K.I.S.S. Productions. The disc made its way into the hands...
