So why did Rihanna blow up but Teairra Mari didn't???

Hmmm I was watching Lottery Ticket(awful movie) last night and Teairra Mari was in the movie. I had completely forgot about her, I remember both are products of Roc Nation and Jay Z! Yet 5 years later Rihanna is one of the 5 most popular female entertainers in the world, while Mari has fallen off the face of the earth. Hmmm I wonder why? I'm just going to say Rihanna had more universal beauty appeal even though I think Mari is more attractive, but probably a little too urban for main stream America. In my opinion "How to make a girl feel" is a far better song than "Pon de Replay". How yall feel?

Management

Re: So why did Rihanna blow up but Teairra Mari didn't???

Same question could be raised about Christina Milian. Milian has suggested that she was dropped so the label could pour money into the Rihanna project.

I love "Sponsor" too!

Jay-Z probably chose to put more effort in Rihanna's success than Teairra's,
The question is, why? Personal relationship? Greater belief in her? They are both beautiful girls so it can't be about one looking better than the other...
Some would argue that Teairra's voice is stronger so once again, why Rihanna? Maybe it has to do with her personality,

Teairra Mari is pretty but I honestly can't recognise her at all. She does not have a distinct face.

Re: So why did Rihanna blow up but Teairra Mari didn't???

Maybe Rihanna had the islander thing going for her and that's what made her more unique...

Check this out! And I've never seen Jay-Z grin that hard during a Beyonce performace,
I guess he was just proud of his young talent...

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.

I don't know about where you live but she's always been pretty popular where I've been. Maybe not as much as today but she was pretty big from day 1.

Re: So why did Rihanna blow up but Teairra Mari didn't???

I thought I read somewhere that when Jay-Z signed Rihanna, he made the unusual move of making it a 6 album deal? I think he just really saw something in her right away.

6 album deal? Wow!

I'm remember my teenage self trying to do the "Dip it Low" dance unsuccessfully,
And yes, I was rolling around in imaginary chocolate or paint or whatever the hell that stuff was,

Yeah but that song definitely came out before Pon de Replay.
