Vixen Chat: Teairra Mari Talks ‘Unfinished Business’ Mixtape and Reality TV

VIBE VIXEN: What’s the music going to sound going to be like for your sophomore album Sex on the Radio?
TEAIRRA MARI: Well, my album is most important. It’s very reminiscent of 90s R&B, that kinda feel.

What are you going to be talking about?
Well, of course, the bedroom [smiles], but also relationships. I’m gonna be poppin’ a little stuff, talking a little shit. That’s who I am, that girl that can go off on those types of records.

How is the Unfinished Business going to differ from the debut album?
The mixtape is me popping shit and singing over other people’s songs. I do have some originals; I think I have five original songs on there. But yeah, I’m pretty much singing over other people’s beats. I did “Mercy,” “I Don’t Like,” stuff like that. The album is more serious on the music side of things, more harmonies, better vocal delivery.

How are you feeling about dropping another full body of work? Nervous? Excited?
I feel great. I mean, honestly, it’s been a long time since I released an album, but I’ve released four mixtapes. I’m just super excited.!This is my second baby, you know. That’s why I didn’t wanna rush it. I wanted it to organically happen. I think now is the time.

What features outside of 2 Chainz can we expect?
I don’t know yet, we’ve just been recording.

No one in mind?
Hmm, well…I know I want to record with Pharrell. [I want] for him to produce me a track, but that’s it. I didn’t have any features on my first album.

Now, on the reality show front, will we see you on the next season of Love & Hip-Hop?
