Teairra Mari’s ‘U Did That’ hasn’t made a major impact on the charts so she has switched gears and focused her attention on another project. ‘Lil Mama’ is the lead single from the struggling singer’s upcoming ‘Unfinished Business’ mixtape, which will be released on July 4th.
Later this year, Mari will issue her ‘Sex on the Radio’ album. The record is being helmed by Rico Love, whom she spoke of during her ‘Teairra Mari: Then & Now’ special. Listen to ‘Lil Mama’ below:
‘Lil Mama’ is a solid R&B record that showcases Mari’s undeniable ability to sing impressively over a Hip-Hop beat. It may not sound like a very difficult feat but many delivering a good vocal performance with believable swagger over this type of production isn’t the easiest task.
It’s such a shame that Mari just can’t seem to win. She is very talented but she lacks the label resources and promotion for her to truly make an impact. Hopefully, Mari will win in the longrun and won’t end up singing demo tapes for Kelly Rowland or the other artists working with Love.
