Recently I decided to take a chance and listen to someone I'd been overlooking since before now..
Ms. Teena Marie.
I mean, Portuguese Love is in my iTunes library and it's my jam! Heck, my brother even sings that song in the shower. But I guess it wasn't the right time in my life to listen and invest in 'Lady T' and her music.
Before, I heard "Can't Last A Day" on the radio while I was drawing and I immediately went to my imeem account to favorite it and add it to my blog for you to hear. But after that I forgot to look at the rest of her 2009 effort. Silly me..
The next day, It was early in the morning and I was on imeem just doing what I normally do before I go to class and I saw her new album on the New Music section of the home site. I don't really remember what I was expecting to hear, but before I knew it, the first song on Congo Square (Released June 9, 2009) "Pressure" was making me sway..and bend..and throw my shoulders to the slow, winding beat of her music. I mean, home- girl is KILLING it on her new album.
Go buy it somewhere. This album is bangin'. I know you see "Can't Last a Day" it on the blog or are you deaf? Wait. No, you're just at work so you couldn't hear it if you wanted to. Just make sure you go get it on your way home.
Preview It Below, but make sure you BUY IT!
By The way...."Can't Last a Day" is missing from the album sampler..
