Teyana Taylor has done it again….. ‘The Album’ just dropped….and it is FLAMES!
In her first release since 2018’s break-out project, K.T.S.E., the ‘WTP’ singer enlists some of the best of the best in the game including Ms. Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Quavo, Big Sean,Iman, and Davido, to name a few.
The 23-piece also features “Boomin” with Missy Elliott and Future, while Teyana’s 4-year-old daughter Junie appears on the Rick Ross-assisted “Come Back to Me.”
“I cried that session,” she told Billboard of the emotional track.
“Like honestly, there’s little pieces in each studio room that was difficult for so many reasons and not necessarily bad things, but it just emotionally really spoke to my heart.”
She decided to release the album on Juneteenth, a holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States.
“I’ve always been about us being celebrated and celebrating my culture and my people. For everything to happen, from my album getting delayed and it falls perfectly on Juneteenth, yes, it’s a celebration,” she said. But the fight for change is not over. “It’s still a lot of work to be done, but I just wanted it to be a thing where Juneteenth is amazing, but even after Juneteenth, we have to keep going. We have to keep celebrating one another and not letting that die down.”
Freedom RINGS out all over the new project..freedom of expression and artistic freedom! You can tell Taylor put her heart and soul into the project. Take a listen!
