Teyana Taylor Clarifies Comments That She's Retiring From Music

Teyana Taylor is addressing her recent comments about retiring from music.

Earlier this week, the 29-year-old rapper, dancer, and model took to Instagram say that she was feeling “under appreciated” as an artist and that she felt as though she was “being overlooked.”

She ended her message by saying that she was “retiring this chapter of my story,” and many fans took that to believe that she was quitting music.

Now, in a new Instagram Live which was posted on Saturday (December 5), Teyana is clarifying her comments, and opened up about her frustration with her record label G.O.O.D Music/Def Jam.

“The majority of what that post was to warn my label who Iโ€™ve been signed to for almost 10 years. Everything that you guys see of me, everything that I put out, everything that I do is 100% me,” Teyana explains. “Thereโ€™s no gun to anybodyโ€™s head to do anything that they donโ€™t want to do. So yes, I am going to feel under appreciated if Iโ€™m putting in 110% and my label is giving me — theyโ€™re reciprocating, what, 10% of that.”

Teyana then went on to claim that Def Jam has given her “literally no push” over the years, and that she was apparently asked the label to drop her several times.

“The crazy part about it is I asked Def Jam to drop me on almost 10 different occasions, straight to their face, up in the building, at the table,” Teyana added. “Like, ‘Yo, just drop me, because at this point, I can’t let this kill me.’”

Teyana‘s messages comes shortly after she was snubbed from the 2021 Grammy nominations.
