Birth name: Mary Christine Brockert.
Also known as: Lady T.
Born: March 5, 1956 Santa Monica, California United States.

Teena Marie is an American singer/songwriter/producer. "Lady T" is a proteg of late funk legend Rick James, and is notable as one of the few successful Caucasian R&B performers, currently the reputed queen of blue-eyed soul.
After signing with Motown Records in 1976 as a backup singer, Teena hooked up with James for her first album titled Wild and Peaceful, released in 1979. Legend has had it that thanks to James' refusal to work with Diana Ross (because he wasn't allowed to pursue her entire album) that he began working with Teena. Teena Marie found her first successes with the songs "I'm A Sucker For Your Love" and "Deja Vu (I've Been Here Before)."
After James' initial guidance, Teena Marie opened the 1980s by producing two hit albums on her own, the 1980 gold album, Lady T (featuring the hit R&B single, "Behind the Groove") and its follow up, Irons in the Fire, (featuring her first pop hit, the Top 40 single, "I Need Your Lovin'"). In 1981, she released her best-selling album on Motown, the platinum It Must Be Magic. It yielded the hit songs, "Square Biz", "Portuguese Love", a song in tribute to her Portuguese ancestry, and the title track. That same year, she also appeared on James' hugely successful album, Street Songs, where they scored a huge hit with their duet, "Fire And Desire."
Success, however, did not mean Teena Marie was satisfied professionally or was stable financially. Upon discovering she had been underpaid royalties for the four albums she recorded for Motown, Teena Marie decided to leave the label and later sued it for having restricted her artistic control. A law was passed as a result, The Brockert Initiative, popularly known as "The Teena Marie Law", which set a precedent for artists seeking control of their careers by limiting the length of recording contracts.
After leaving in 1982, she signed with Epic Records in 1983 and released the concept album Robbery, which featured the singles, "Shadow Boxing" and "Casanova Brown." The latter was allegedly about her real-life romance with mentor Rick James. In 1984, Teena Marie released her biggest-selling album, Starchild. It yielded the singles "Lovergirl" and "Out On A Limb". "Lovergirl" became Teena Marie's highest peaking single to date on pop charts, peaking at #4, while peaking at #9 on the R&B charts. "Out On A Limb" was not as successful as "Lovergirl" on the R&B Charts, peaking only at #56.
In 1986, Teena Marie released a rock and roll concept album titled Emerald City. It wasn't as successful as her predecessors and in 1988 she returned to her R&B and funk roots releasing the critically-acclaimed album, Naked to the World. That album contained her only #1 single on any Billboard chart, "Ooo La La La", which reached the top of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.
Teena Marie released "Ivory" in the fall of 1990. Despite the success of the first two singles, "Here's Looking at You" (#11 R&B) and "If I Were a Bell" (#8 R&B), Epic Records was not totally pleased with sales of the album. So Teena and Epic Records mutually agreed to go their separate ways. In the fall of 1994, Teena released "Passion Play", on her own independent label, and subsequently devoted most of her time to her daughter, Alia Rose. During the 1990s, Marie's classic R&B, soul and funk records were either sampled by hip-hop artists or covered by R&B divas. Teena Marie herself is seen as something of a pioneer in helping to bring hip-hop to the mainstream by becoming one of the first and only artists of her time to rap on one of her singles--the aforementioned "Square Biz." In the rap portion of that song, she mentions some of her inspirations: William Shakespeare, Maya Angelou and Nikki Giovanni, "just to name a few," as she says. In 1996, The Fugees paid tribute to her by sampling the chorus of her 1988 hit "Ooo La La La" for their own hit, "Fu-Gee-La."

After a 14-year sabbatical from the national spotlight, Teena Marie returned to her musical career by signing with the "Classics" imprint of the successful hip-hop label Cash Money Records. She released her comeback album, La Dona, in 2004. It became a gold success (and the highest charting album of her career, peaking at #6 on the Billboard 200 chart) on the basis of the Al Green-sampled "Still In Love" (#23 R&B, #70 Pop) and a duet with the late Gerald Levert, "A Rose By Any Other Name". Teena Marie was nominated for a 2005 Grammy for Best R&B Female Vocal Performance for "Still In Love". Teena quickly followed this success with the release of Sapphire in 2006. While sales weren't as great this time around (the album peaked at #24 on the Pop Chart), the release did give Teena Marie yet another R&B Top 40 hit, "Ooh Wee" (#32).
