Teyana Taylor shocked the industry and fans alike when she announced that she was retiring from music after relaying that she felt unappreciated.
Now, she’s expanded on her sentiments.
Find out what she had to say below…
Speaking on Instagram Live, the singer clarified that her grievance doesn’t stem from being omitted from the 2021 GRAMMY nominations. She stressed that it has “nothing” to do with that.
Instead, she said: “I’m tired, baby. I’m tired.”
She candidly remarked:
“What that post was was toward my label that I’ve been signed to for almost 10 years.”
Taylor, released ‘The Album’ in June, unpacked a narrative of driving her own career without much support:
“Yes, I am gonna feel under-appreciated if I’m putting in 110% and they’re reciprocating 10 % of that. I constantly feel alone. I constantly feel unappreciated. I constantly feel failed because there’s literally no push.”
The 29-year-old revealed that she begged her label (Def Jam) to drop her on “almost 10 different occasions. Just drop me, because at this point, I can’t let this kill me.”
She continued: “I gotta do it for my mental health. I have to do it for my emotional health. I have to do it my kids, so I can stay alive for my kids.”
