From TVOneOnline.com – There may never be a more soulful, sexy, funky combination of voice and music like that which emanates from the “Ivory Queen of Soul,” Teena Marie. Her phenomenal range and unique tone has made her among the most recognizable voices in R&B. At the age of 17, Teena fulfilled her childhood dream of a music career when she signed with Motown Records. There, she teamed up musically – and for a time, romantically – with funk master Rick James, who produced her debut album, Wild and Peaceful. A hit song with James, Fire and Desire, along with Teena’s robust sound and powerful delivery, helped to overcome long standing racial barriers between black audiences and white singers. Teena talks about leaving Motown at the height of her career, losing her long-time friend Rick James and her fight to take control of her life.

Joss Stone, who many will argue, was the first in the recent string of blue eyed songstresses is back with a new project, L1, from her new label, Stone’d Records. We have been fans of hers from the beginning and are really looking forward to spending some more quality time with this new release. From the sounds of this song, she has not missed a step and is delivering power with soul.
More from GiantStep.net:
Grammy award-winning singer Joss Stone is exercising total creative freedom on her new album LP1. She recently established her own label, Stone’d Records, hence the title of the first album to come out on the label, in partnership with Surfdog Records. Joss co-wrote and co-produced it with super-producer Dave Stewart (formerly of the Eurythmics). The album is unlike anything anyone has ever heard from Joss before, showcasing a piano-driven rock sound that blends the innate emotive soulfulness of Stone’s unparalleled vocals with the raw, bareness of traditional blues.
