If you didn't stan Teyana Taylor before you will now. Prior to this release, Teyana Taylor wrote an op-ed in Billboard talking about the significance of the Juneteenth release date.
With releasing the album on Juneteenth, it's important because if you noticed the lead singles that I led with were "Made It" and "We Got Love." So I've always been here. 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.
We still got work to do, though. 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.
Having recorded this album while pregnant and moving through the motions of releasing it while the world grapples with a pandemic and witnesses injustice against the black community day after day brings on emotions like no other. Like she said, we still got work to do but we also can't forget to celebrate.
If you are still interested in the likes of Miss Taylor, check out this amazing video she released from her last album K.T.S.E for "WTP (feat. Mykki Blanco)". It has everything. She serves us Ballroom death drops, red kitty girl wigs, chain-links, and most of all loooooks. The song is just as amazing as the video and even has some amazing guest features. Fairy god mother pulled through honey.
