"Lovergirl" is the first single from Teena Marie's 1984 album, Starchild. The song became Marie's biggest hit, peaking at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. She wrote and produced the song.
In 2010, Sy Smith performed the song as tribute to the late singer during her Sy Smith & Mark de Clive-Lowe Tour. She later recorded her own interpretation of the song titled "Teena (Lovergirl Syberized)", which appears on her fourth album "Fast and Curious".
