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.
