Re: So why did Rihanna blow up but Teairra Mari didn't???
Ahhhh, this explains it. Jay-Z never signed Teairra. L.A. Reid did. And Rihanna's music was more pop while Teairra's was more urban. On top of that, Rihanna's first single "Pon de Replay" went to #1 (on the Dance charts & #2 on Billboard Hot 100) while Teairra's didn't. This all probably contributed to Rihanna "blowing up" while Teairra didn't.
