R.I.P. Teena Marie
I was so sad to see that R&B singer Teena Marie unexpectedly passed away last night at the age of 54. A force in the music business, Teena Marie leaves behind a solid body of work. She sang classic hits and remained relevant by appealing to younger generations (The Fuguees remade her 80s hit "Ooh La La La" into their massive hit "Fu-gee-la." My fave Teena Marie song is "Square Biz." Can't forget her in "Fire & Desire," a classic ballad she did with her mentor Rick James. R.I.P. Teena.
