Throwback Thursday Jams: Rick James and Teena Marie – Fire and Desire

This my song ya’ll. Rick and Teena’s voice together is electric…Even though I can’t look at Rick James without laughing thanks to Dave Chapelle.  He flyer than me in those red thigh-high boots 😂🤣

  1. Love Chappelle’s Rick James! Just too funny!

    This song was played EVERYWHERE back in the day and was always the slow-dance-of-the-night. 😀

    Never could deal with Teena’s voice. It grates on me for some reason, just like Beyonce’s. I always feel like I’m missing out when everyone else is enjoying the music and have tried to listen many times… and still end up with a headache! 😀 😀 Oh well, everything isn’t for everyone. 😉

    1. Precisely! My favorite duet with Rick James singing is Ebony Eyes, with Rick James and Smokey Robinson. I think that maybe he wanted to be an opera singer or something because he is so theatrical with his singing, lol!
