Chris Breezy’s best friend, Teyana Taylor, has officially been dropped from her contract with Star Trak / Interscope Records. The Harlem-bred singer/rapper has been on the shelf for the past six years after her debut single “Google Me” never popped off.
The 21-year-old did get a little shine when she was rumored to be getting it in with Kanye West. If she was, that hook-up definitely paid off, because shortly after, she made an appearance on his album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and his holiday song, “Christmas in Harlem.”
She was recently on DJ Skee’s radio show, and here’s what she had to say about being dropped:
“I officially got my release from Star Trak/Interscope, I was signed for six years and there’s a lot of stuff that comes with the industry,” she said.
When asked if she was upset by the release, Taylor kept it politically correct.
“Everybody bowed out gracefully. There was no beef. I love Interscope, I love Star Trak. It’s always love for Pharrell; that’s my big brother. Now it’s time for me to go from a caterpillar to a butterfly. I had to fly away from the nest and venture out on my own.”
If anybody cares, Teyana is dropping an EP on February 29 led by the single “Make Your Move” with Wale, and a second single, “DUI” featuring Jadakiss, will arrive on February 14.
Do you think this free agent will find a new label home, or will she wither away like so many before her? Will Kanye come in and scoop her up for his G.O.O.D. Music label?
