Inspired by discovering that some of her family roots are in New Orleans, a city with which she has long felt a deep spiritual connection, Teena Marie frames Congo Square around the Crescent City. It's her third solid album of the decade, but somewhat ironically, it's not on the New Orleans-based Cash Money, the home of 2004's La Doña and 2006's Sapphire, but Memphis' Stax. A track from Lady T the Legendary Teena Marie off her 2009 album CONGO SQUARE. Congo Square is the 13th album released by Teena Marie. Independant record label Stax released the album on June 9, 2009. The album features the following collaboraters Marie's daughter Alia Rose who now goes by the name Rose LeBeau Milk n' Honey, and rapper MC Lyte The Pressure, as well as Faith Evans, who makes her first appearance on a Teena Marie album on the lead single Can't Last a Day. The title track features jazz pianist George Duke, who recently collaborated with R&B diva Jill Scott on her gold certified releaseThe Real Thing: Words & Sounds Vo. Album: Congo Square. Have This Want This. Album Info This Release. Visitor rating. Release date label labelcode medium genre submit corrections. Released 2009. Congo Square Tracklist. Can't Last A Day Ft. Faith Evans Lyrics. Baby I Love You Lyrics. The music is ultra-competent electro soul-funk of the kind that sounds good in a low-riding Benz. Mannered sensuality abounds, as does a very specific Teena-esque kind of histrionic emotionalism. Guests include George Duke, Faith Evans and MC Lyte. Any old-school soul boys out there
