Early life and educationEdit
Toya was born LaToya Lacole Rodriguez on July 22, 1983, to a Puerto Rican father and an African American mother. She was named after La Toya Jackson. She graduated from Mary Institute and St. Louis Country Day School in St. Louis County, Missouri.
Toya’s career jump started when Courtney Benson and Tony Davis signed Toya to their production company, Hit City Music Group. The two also managed another St. Louis native, Hip Hop superstar Nelly. They took Toya to Arista Records, where then-label chief L.A. Reid signed her to a major record deal instantly. Toya’s first single "I Do!!" had major chart success. And led to her self-titled debut album later that same year, which landed on the Billboard 200. Her second single was 2002's "No Matta What (Party All Night)".
Toya is married to Tamaurice "Tee" Martin, the wide receivers coach for the Baltimore Ravens. On March 15, 2004, their son Kaden Martin was born. In 2012, Toya gave birth to a second child, another son Cannon, according to her via Twitter.
