Veteran R&B songstress Teena Marie, best known for her string of pop crossover hits in the early '80s ("Square Biz," "It Must Be Magic," "Lovergirl"), has never let fickle music trends dictate her creative output, even as she's undergone several artistic makeovers since her popularity initially began to wane in the early '90s. The singer's 13th album, CONGO SQUARE (named for a historic New Orleans site where 19th-century slaves were allowed to sing and dance on Sundays), marks a new chapter for Teena Marie, completing the circle on all her past influences, from southern soul and jazz to classic funk and hip-hop.
