Teyana Taylor has been in the industry for so long that it’s hard to picture a time when she wasn’t in the public eye. Since her debut at 15 years old, Taylor has been a mainstay in music, TV and films. So, many fans were shocked when the multi-hyphenate talent announced her retirement from music. Though, in recent years the singer and mom of two seemed to be focusing more of her attention on shooting visuals with her production company, The Aunties, her last two albums were met with much fanfare and positive reviews. Well, Teyana has finally opened up about why she decided to step away.
On her popular reality show, We Got Love with Iman and Teyana, she shared that hitmaking producer London On Da Track had been urging her to record a few tracks he’d created specifically for her. “It’s not music, it’s my situation that I’m in. I want to be released to just do my thing,” she said in a conversation with her family. Also adding that, due to the length of her contract and career, she had fulfilled her end of the bargain in a situation that she was “feeling super under-appreciated as an artist, receiving little to no real push from the ‘machine,’ constantly getting the shorter end of the stick, being overlooked….” About back in December when she originally announced her plans to step away from music all together.
Though many Teyana fans have remained hopeful that the singer would change her mind, it seems that her decision is final as she announced her The Last Rose Petal Farewell Tour yesterday. Currently, there are 12 North American dates with more slated to be released soon and pre-orders have seen the show almost completely sell out in the last 24 hours. The singer expressed her gratitude for the continued support saying, “How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard…. However for every goodbye God makes the next hello closer. Come out and watch me, leave it all out on the stage… One last time… Just for you & as my last rose petal falls, I say farewell….🥀.”
We’re sure that it will be a show to remember as Teyana is always known for putting on one hell of a show.
