Rap-Up TV: Teairra Mari and 2 Chainz Serve ‘Glam and Grit’ in ‘U Did That’ Video

Teairra Mari was back on the scene, shooting the video for “U Did That” with 2 Chainz in downtown Los Angeles. The Rico Love-produced song serves as the lead single from her Division1 debut, due this summer. Rap-Up TV visited the petite diva on set as she channeled “old school Mary J. or Jenny from the Block” with her fur-clad look.

“The video is gonna be very sexy, lofty feeling,” explained Teairra. “I’m just serving gritty, but glam and grit.”

Much-buzzed-about MC 2 Chainz rolled through to make a cameo. “I thought she was a cutie pie,” said the Def Jam signee. “It’s a good look for both of us, coming from where I come from, me being a more street label artist and her campaign crossing up, so it should really look good on film.”

Teairra has been working closely with label boss Rico Love on her sophomore album and hopes to collaborate with fellow Detroit artist Big Sean. “It’s reminiscent of a new jack swing, like ’90s R&B, bedroom music but with a bounce,” she said.

“There are a lot of talented songwriters out there, but for me, my chemistry is with Rico and I haven’t had a chemistry like this with anybody else. Everybody has their match and I think Rico is definitely my musical match.”

After releasing several mixtapes and viral videos, Teairra Mari makes her official return with “U Did Dat,” the lead single from her as-yet-untitled sophomore album. The R&B siren exited Warner Bros. Records earlier this year and signed to Rico Love’s Division1 label.

“Ever since I went there with you/ Never been so turned out and turned on/ I’m so glad he’s gone ’cause you’re the one I want,” a smitten Teairra coos over the seductive midtempo, written and produced by Rico and D-Town.

“I believe in her. She’s a superstar,” Rico told Rap-Up.com. “If somebody is a star and they have that ‘it’ thing that cannot be taught, all you have to do is put a record with it. I believe that she’s gonna have a successful career. I believe that she has that potential.”

Teairra Mari Attends Church Following DUI Arrest

Teairra Mari

Following her DUI arrest last week, Teairra Mari is getting her life back in order. The 23-year-old singer attended Sunday services at Oasis Church in Los Angeles, her first public outing since being charged with drunk driving in Beverly Hills. She released a statement over the weekend owning up to her mistake and apologizing to those she disappointed.

Rico Love, who signed Teairra to his Division1 label, spoke exclusively with Rap-Up.com about the incident. “I don’t condone drinking and driving. I don’t support it,” said the hitmaker. “I think it was a foolish decision on her part, but at the end of the day we all make mistakes. I had that big brother talk with her and I’m gonna continue to have that with her. But I love her and I still believe in her talent, so we just gonna keep it movin’ and give her our full support. But I do not condone that type of activity at all whatsoever.”

So far Rico and Teairra have recorded five songs together for her Division1 debut and he plans to drop her first single at the top of 2012. “She’s a superstar. If somebody is a star and they have that ‘it’ thing that cannot be taught, all you have to do is put a record with it,” he explained.
