Teena Marie

Amy Linden, XXL, August 2006

THERE'S NEVER been a funkier white girl than Teena Marie. With hits like 'Lovergirl', 'Square Biz' and 'Fire and Desire' – a duet with former lover the late Rick James, Miss Teena has made beautiful music since 1979. Her latest gem is Sapphire, a collaboration with the Cash Money crew. XXL spoke to the R&B legend about legacies, lyrics and lounging in the VIP section.
