Roc-A-Fella Records Presents Teairra Marí is the debut album by recording artist Teairra Marí. It was released on August 2, 2005, by Roc-A-Fella Records. The album debuted in the top five selling 69,000 copies in the first week, eventually selling 248,000 units.
At the age of 16, K.I.S.S.' Big Mike felt that Marí was ready for the big time, and he brought the R&B starlet in front of a who's who of label execs. Candy Tookes, a friend of Big Mike, introduced the pair to industry veteran Daryl Simmons in Atlanta, Georgia. Simmons then shared Marí's K.I.S.S. Productions-produced demo disc with Antonio "L.A." Reid, Chairman of The Island Def Jam Music Group. After hearing Teairra Marí perform live, Reid offered her a contract on the spot. According to Shakir Stewart, VP A&R at Def Jam, in an interview with HitQuarters, "Teairra was a star when she walked into the room. She captured the room when she did her audition. We fell in love with her from day one."
- The first single from the album was "Make Her Feel Good". "Make Her Feel Good" received radio airplay and reached number 35 on the Billboard Hot 100. The video got very little play on MTV, but strong play on BET. The single did not debut on TRL after its premiere. On BET's 106 & Park it peaked at number two.
- The second single was "No Daddy". The hip-hop influenced track gained a lot of votes on MTV's TRL, peaking at number four. It peaked at a number 84 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
- "Phone Booth" was released as the third single but only received a radio release since the video shoot was cancelled.
