In 1962, 17-year-old Tammi

Terrell

was introduced to James Brown. She signed a contract with him and began singing backup for his Revue as Tammy Montgomery. They became sexually involved. In 1963, Tammi released

her first

Billboard Hot 100

charting single, “I Cried” on James’ Try Me label. The song was written by James and Bobby Byrd. James reused the song’s chord progression for his 1966 hit “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World.” Tammi’s relationship with James became very abusive.

One night on tour she finally left him after he beat her backstage for not watching his entire performance, abruptly ending their 2-year affair and professional relationship.
