We were first introduced to Teyana Taylor back in 2007 when she appeared on MTV’s My Super Sweet 16. What first caught our attention was her signature curly ‘fro, but her crazy style and swag it was has had us hooked. Before the show aired, she signed to Star Trak/Interscope Records where she released her 2008 debut album, From a Planet Called Harlem. Her first single, “Google Me” peaked at number 90 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Unfortunately, she was released from her contract with the Staar Trak/Interscope earlier this year.
Shortly after, the young Harlem bred rapper/singer signed with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music label where she is now a part of one of the hottest rosters in the game that includes Common, John Legend, Mos Def, Big Sean, Pusha T, Kid Cudi and CyHi Da Prynce, to name a few.
It’s been a long time coming but Ms. Taylor has finally released her debut solo project ‘The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor’ with appearances from Jadakiss, Fabolous, Wale, Travis Porter and more. The cover art closely resembles that of (one of her influences) Lauryn Hill’s 1998 debut solo album ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’.
