    For the person who asked who is Teena Marie? what log you been sleeping under? She's only the blackest white girl you ever wanted to meet, she had more hits than you could even count, she used to be with Rick James back in the day,she had hits like, Lover Girl, Square Biz, Portuguese Love, Fire And Desire w/ Rick James.
