Teyana Taylor’s ‘K.T.S.E’ Won’t Be Updated

Published: Tuesday 3rd Jul 2018 by Nehemiah

After the disappointing release of Teyana Taylor‘s ‘K.T.S.E’ album, G.O.O.D Music’s final release of the summer, the star has revealed that the unfinished version of the album has been scrapped.

Details below…

Via social media, she cited a reign of clearance issues and misunderstandings as the cause. She said the following to a fan:

With a mixed reception from fans and critics, following the set’s release, TT made her disappointment known on ‘Big Boy’s Neighborhood’ and promised to drop a second version of the album.

At the time, she said

“Saturday, Sunday, you’ll hear the complete version of the album. At the end of ‘Issues,’ I had the Sade piece in there. The end of ‘Rose in Harlem,’ I had Lauryn Hill’s ‘Lost Ones’ in there, and I was really talking that shit,” she continued. “Once y’all hear the album next week, you’ll see what I’m talking about, because it’s way more complete.”

While fans are pointing and blaming executive producer Kanye West, the 27-year-old is playing safe politics and dishing out the fault to everyone involved in the inception of the album.

“I’d have to blame a little bit of everybody because we set the date and we had the listening party, and then we had clearance issues. As far as the clearance issues, I don’t know. I feel like everybody plays a part. With Ye, he really wanted me to be happy, and he knew that the wait was killing me.”


[Deep sigh]

Such a missed opportunity. It’s unfortunate that Teyana has fallen victim to the creative madness that has ensued under the guise of ‘Ye. As talented as an artist TT is, it might be beneficial for her to take the advice from her beloved fans and remove herself from the G.O.O.D Music moniker.

    Honestly its just pathetic at this stage.
    The songs had great potential
    Teyana has a great voice which still has not been explored fully over the last 10 years
    Her talent is crazy but the execution is always poor

      I usually don’t entry on Teyanna posts but felt compelled to say her record label did her wrong. If the pic above is her album cover I hate it and the tracklist / song length seemed very short and like an EP rather than an album. With all this talk about clearances for such a short tracklist it is obvious to me that Kanye did not spend a lot of money on producers, songwriters, or musicians but rather just used a bunch of samples whose owners never got paid for. She should learn from this experience, leave Kanye’s label if she can, and find another label who will invest in her music.

    It’s not a good album. I only liked WTP. Nothing else stood out.

    • Intro July 3, 2018

      You like the worst song on the album. You just have bad taste lol cause everything else is better than WTP. Lol, different strokes I guess.

    At this point, RUN AWAY from the music company. Not that it will help because the music career is over. And that’s a shame….

    it’s a shame…this long in the game and we still haven’t heard “her sound” or what she’s fully capable of

  5. Drinkmybussyjuice July 3, 2018

    AS AN ARTIST i think it is the most disrespect to release an unfinished album to your fans. That’s unprofessional at the highest level

    • Yan July 3, 2018

      Agreed. We waited 4 years, we could wait more.

    • Boytoy1814 July 5, 2018

      Kanye takes the blame for the release. He’s a hot mess & got Teyana looking bad. Done w/him

  6. Justme July 3, 2018

    Beyonce has chloe x Halle working none stop. They’re on TV shows released a ep and then an album. PERFORMING at the Bet awards and mtv, wwe , NBA national anthem. And this is just too create a buzz. This is still while creating album and touring on her own. They’re also her opening act for the u.s. leg of the tour. People talk crap about beyonce but clearly she is doing more for them than kanye tt. And between the two tt is more known.

    • SMH July 3, 2018

      Lol how much did their album sell? apparently she’s not doing that much more than Kanye.

      • audreyherbsburn July 3, 2018

        stupid comment. beyonce has done a lot. she can’t force people to be interested. chloe and halle come off as children making music, and there’s not a big lane for that.

      • DanYiel Iman July 3, 2018

        More than Teyana Taylor & their youthful! SO stop the presses!

      • SMH July 3, 2018

        @audreyherbsburn No, the entire paragraph about beyonce was stupid, just like your response. Those girls that she’s supposedly “doing more” for still flopped, and nobody still knows who they are. And guess what? NOBODY can force people to be interested in anything, so bringing up beyonce & what shes “done” for a group that also flopped just like Teyana was stupid to begin with, just like your response. So sit back down.

    • DC July 3, 2018

      And they still flopped ?

      • SMH July 3, 2018

        Exactly. These idiot roaches bring her name up in every post like she’s a God or something. Those girls still flopped, just like Everything Is Love.

  7. Yan July 3, 2018

    What a mess. 4 years later and this girl is playing her career like this.

    We could have waited a little longer girl. We could.

  8. SMH July 3, 2018

    From the moment it was announced that she signed with Kanye West I knew her album was headed for disaster. An self obsessed egomaniac will never give another artist the complete attention their career deserves.

  9. iamdiego July 3, 2018

    when artist have no creative control.

  10. Melonie July 3, 2018

    She is amazing artist she should move on.

  11. Caleb July 3, 2018

    Kanye managed to get all the other albums he released by himself and other artists in this short time-frame to debut in the top 10 on the album chart. Seems like he put Teyana on the back-burner in favor of Pusha T, himself, Kid Cudi and even Nas.

    • gina July 3, 2018

      I noticed the same thing. Didn’t want to make this a misogyny thing, but there it is.

  12. Monkeyseemonkeydo July 3, 2018

    It is just a shame. The album was decent because it was short. Didn’t fully showcase her as an artist. Plus her last album was better but no promotion. That man has dropped the ball twice or maybe Teyana dropped the ball! Either way get together or do other stuff girl!
