Sexy, sassy and colorful in Kloset Kouture, Teairra Mari is basking in the heat atop a NYC rooftop. The occasion? The 24-year-old singer is celebrating her 2 Chainz-assisted single “U Did That” and her forthcoming ‘tape Unfinished Business, to be released on July 4.
Vixen pulled the former Love & Hip-Hop cast member into the shade to chat about the follow-up to her 2005 self-titled debut, her future in reality television and why she likes both Azealia and Iggy. –Niki McGloster
VIBE VIXEN: What’s the music going to sound going to be like for your sophomore album Sex on the Radio?
TEAIRRA MARI: Well, my album is most important. It’s very reminiscent of 90s R&B, that kinda feel.
What are you going to be talking about?
Well, of course, the bedroom [smiles], but also relationships. I’m gonna be poppin’ a little stuff, talking a little shit. That’s who I am, that girl that can go off on those types of records.
How is the Unfinished Business going to differ from the debut album?
The mixtape is me popping shit and singing over other people’s songs. I do have some originals; I think I have five original songs on there. But yeah, I’m pretty much singing over other people’s beats. I did “Mercy,” “I Don’t Like,” stuff like that. The album is more serious on the music side of things, more harmonies, better vocal delivery.
How are you feeling about dropping another full body of work? Nervous? Excited?
I feel great. I mean, honestly, it’s been a long time since I released an album, but I’ve released four mixtapes. I’m just super excited.!This is my second baby, you know. That’s why I didn’t wanna rush it. I wanted it to organically happen. I think now is the time.
Ms.Royalty got to chat with the singer, songwriter, actress discussing growing up with an Absent Father, her career, working with Jay Z, new Mixtape, record with 2 Chainz, why she cried first time meeting Beyonce, check out the interview below:
Working with Jay Z…. “It was a great experience, he taught me a lot, he was very much so like a father figure to me when I was at Roc-A-Fella(records). “
Starting out with Rihanna, did you ever feel betrayed by the label… “I never felt betrayed, I didn’t quite understand it at first, you live and you learn and the business is the business so I soon got over it.”
Is talent enough in the industry… “It’s definitely not enough…I still have a lot of work to do… it takes determination and perseverance, some people aren’t that talented and they make it because of that reason alone. “
“You did that” feat. 2 Chainz… “ I’ve always liked him even when he was known as ‘tity boi.’ I threw out a few names to my team and they were like we all want to go with 2chainz so I was like perfect.”
Coming up next…”A new album with Rico Love and also one last Mixtape, I’m going to name it unfinished business, I just feel like I have to make one more underground round before I release an album.”
