Teyana Taylor is clarifying her recent comments about retiring from music, taking to Instagram Live to share a lengthy video further explaining her original post on Instagram.
On Friday, Dec. 4, Taylor wrote on Instagram that she feels “super under appreciated” as an artist after receiving “little to no real push from the ‘machine,'” and announced that she’s “retiring this chapter of my story.” Her comments left many fans wondering if she’s actually quitting music. In her updated remarks, the singer confirmed that she does indeed want to retire from music, primarily because of ongoing frustration with her record label G.O.O.D Music/Def Jam.
Since her debut in 2014, Taylor has released three albums and one EP, the most recent being 2020’s The Album which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top R&B Albums chart in early July. Taylor has also worked as a choreographer, actress, model, fitness guru and shoe designer.
