Teyana Taylor Announces Retirement From Music

Published: Friday 4th Dec 2020 by Oscar

Teyana Taylor has had enough of the industry.

So much so, the singer has decided to retire from the music game completely.

Read the saddening reason below…

Taking to her Instagram to share her Spotify Wrapped stats, the ‘WTP‘ singer thanked her fans for streams of over 160 million in more than 90 countries this year alone.

However, she shocked her supporters when she revealed that she feels “under appreciated as an artist” and will be retiring from music imminently.

News of the star’s retirement comes as her latest project ‘The Album‘ wasn’t anywhere to be found on 2021’s GRAMMY nominations list; an omission that irked Taylor and her fans.

It’s understandable why the musician feels this way. ‘The Album’ was undoubtedly one of the strongest R&B albums of 2020.

In any case, we remain hopeful that she will use this to push herself even further creatively. Not for the accolades or awards, but for herself and her supporters. For her talent is undeniable and we’d hate to see it go to waste.

Stream ‘The Album’ below:

Do you agree with Teyana’s decision?

    I understand her pain

    After putting so much effort, and time and money into music videos, choreography, wardrobe etc, the public is still paying u dust

    This bìtch literally got Elton John on her song and music video and she still tanked.

    She feels underappreciated.

    She was pìssed when her album wasnt nominated for a Grammy also. This was probably the last straw that broke the camel’s back

      @Clark… – “This bìtch literally got Elton John on her song and music video and she still tanked. ” –> hahaha!

    • Welp December 5, 2020

      No one ever took Teyana serious. She was always just that spoiled brat from the Super 16 series who got everything she cried for. She never put out anything of substance to change that or to earn our respect. R&B is HARD to succeed in, you have to stand out; she doesn’t. I’ve always thought her music was a bit dated, as evidenced by her pulling in such an old school artist like Elton John.

    162 million streams

      • Bebo December 4, 2020

      No Lies Detected

  4. K’’man December 4, 2020

    That’s right girl when no one is streaming the music you retire. Good luck on your future endeavors!!

  5. Truth December 4, 2020

    I’m so confused by her career. Didn’t she only have one album? She thought she was gonna sweep the grammys?. She is an alright singer, but ..I never knew why she was famous all this time.

    • HELLOKITTY December 4, 2020

      @Truth – “She is an alright singer, but ..I never knew why she was famous all this time.” <— This!

  6. Pat December 4, 2020

    She missed her big moment. All eyes and ears were on her after Fade and Kanye totally fumbled with the album. She’s never been able to recover

    • Clarks0o0ñ December 4, 2020

      Missed her big moment?

      She literally milked the life out of that fade video appearance for several years.

      Her problem, she tries too damn HARD.
      She thinks too highly of her self
      In her mind she probably thinks she’s beyonce, but in reality shes a Mitchell at best.

      • BeQuiet!!! December 4, 2020

        What’s a Mitchell? When learning the art of shade, it is also a must to learn the art of grammar.

      • Rippoffyonce…..tumbleyonce…or copycat December 5, 2020

        Beyonce the rip off copycat career criminal

    • Keith December 4, 2020

      I agree with this sentiment. Her “window” was completely missed….I get her for feeling under appreciated. Many RnB stars probably feel that way.

  7. chilepleaseee December 4, 2020

    If Ciara hasn’t quit, then…..chile

    • Keith December 4, 2020

      While I like Ciara, she is literally throwing EVERYTHING against the wall to see what sticks. I applaud Teyana for taking a different path.

  8. J December 4, 2020

    Bye Sis 👋

  9. Duhduhduh December 4, 2020

    Bye bye bye

  10. Management December 4, 2020

    She releases too much music with no clear theme or cohesion. Who is Teyana Taylor the artist? All I see is a bunch of 90’s nostalgia, samples and throwbacks. I’m not convinced to support her music.


  11. UTryedItHoe December 4, 2020

    For one she’s a f****** clout chaser. She’s Ugly af even with the ton of plastic surgery she got on her face, and lastly she’s unoriginal. Teyana doesn’t have IT. Instead of complaining about being underrated , why not just continue Releasing music for the small fan base you have. Girl bye. Nobody owes you s***. Enjoy retirement and that ugly ass dining room. Kapeesh.

  12. Adonis December 4, 2020

    Boohoohoo wehwehweh 😭 shut up and put that dummy back in your mouth teytay u have released just two albums and calling it quits? Chiiiile… every single song on your last album sounded the exact same to me, be more versatile! All Erylah Badu-esque songs isn’t gonna get u fans or a Grammy! Look at Tinashe… that poor baby has been trying for the past 15 years too but u don’t see her crying! The trouble teytay is that u think you’re better than what u r: have a slice of humble pie and sherep. Lol

    • Gag Order December 5, 2020

      She’s been signed since 2005 but you know so damn much right

      • Adonis December 7, 2020

        I know not a thing about her but I did like one or two of her songs.

  13. Moose’s Wig December 4, 2020

    Wouldn’t she need a career first, before she retires? She put the cart before the horse. 🤣🙄

  14. yfn hoochie December 4, 2020

    o stfu teyana FAILor

  15. Nicky December 4, 2020

    Bye Boo!

    I called it way before. You’re NAWT a Star and never will be

  16. Nicky December 4, 2020

    Remember Camicky’s pyscho fan was bragging that Elton. John invited Camicky to perform and then he ends up doing a duet with Teyana Taylor


    Camicky fans keep taking Ls

  17. DC December 5, 2020

    I’d retire to she’s never had a hit song and hasn’t even had a gold album in her 20 year career smart decision she’s always thought she was bigger than what she is

  18. Misty December 5, 2020

    Maybe her lack of any musical talent is what really ‘retired’ her.

  19. PinotNoir December 5, 2020

    Ok Tamar.

    Wise decision.

    Better acts deserve your budget.
