Martika (1988) Martika

Martika is the title of the debut album by former child actor and Teen pop singer Martika. It was released on CBS Records in 1988. The album marked the solo debut for Martika, and spawned the American #1 single "Toy Soldiers" (which features background vocals by Fergie). The song is about drug addiction, but with only a cursory listen it sounds like a break-up ballad. Songs that charted internationally included "More Than You Know", "Water", and "I Feel the Earth Move", a Carole King cover that cracked the American Top 25. Stylistically the music was strictly pop, despite exploring some adult topics lyrically. The song "Water" is partially sung in Spanish, an homage to Martika's Cuban heritage. Other songs were re-recorded fully in Spanish for international release.
