Having a history of working with the likes of Chris Brown, Pharrell Williams, Usher, Omarion and currently signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music’s label, it can be argued that Teyana does not get the credit deserved. Particularly on a global scale.
The love appears to be felt in the States but on this side of the Atlantic, her name and image is slept on. Whilst she is a woman of numerous crafts including acting and choreography, she is an extremely talented singer and all round musician. Whilst the title may appear to lack creativity on the front, it could easily be perceived as more a statement. This is THE album to make you pay attention and draw your ears.
Track 20, “Friends” holds a sample and plays on Musiq Soulchild’s track “Just Friends”. Alternatively, 2019’s “How You Want It?” release featuring King Combs is an inclusion on the album. The track samples Mase’s 1998 track, “What You Want”. Adding a throwback R&B feel to the album. Along with a variety of sounds through the likes of Reggae infused “Bad” and the steamy collaboration with Kehlani “In The Morning” that also dropped last year.
This latest project is a 23 track R&B fuelled collection. The album includes features from the likes of Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Quavo, Rick Ross, Future and Kehlani to name a few.
