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.
Via social media, she cited a reign of clearance issues and misunderstandings as the cause. She said the following to a fan:
I guess we ain’t getting one. ??♀️ https://t.co/VBKQqYaHBy

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.”
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.
