Teyana Taylor Addresses Comments She Made About Her Album Produced by Kanye: “My Complaints Came From A Place Of Hurt”

According to Celebrity Insider, Kanye West treated fans when he personally took on five projects released in five weeks one after another. The artist included Ye himself, Nas, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, and Teyana Taylor. Teyana recently made some comments that made it sound like she disagreed with the decisions made ranging from the release date to the final rollout.

During an interview with Hot 97, Teyana discussed that she wasn’t in the know about the five-album plan. When she was notified she was extremely nervous to drop her sophomore album titled “Keep That Same Energy” at the same time of so many rap legends.

When the album was released, Taylor took to Twitter to tell followers that a longer, more complete album would be coming along with visuals. On “The Breakfast Club,” she voiced complaints that there were multiple things that hurt her about the way the final piece was made.

She explained that she was taken aback by the fact that one day she had made an album and the next it had a completely different sound (which is true Kanye fashion).

She told Charlamagne: “I was hurt, I was feeling a type of way.”

Additionally, there were many cuts to the piece including her daughter’s verse on the widely talked about song “Never Would Have Made It.”

For a better clarity of my "publicized emotions" toward my album…I LOVE MY ALBUM and never said that I didnt AND BELIEVE IN MY ALBUM with all of me. My complaints never came from a place of anger but more so from a place of hurt that I felt that I owed the world more. After 5 years of patience I could have anticipated the culture would be hurt that all I had to offer them was 23 mins. I have a very loyal and active fan base that I'm extremely indebted to and that I am extremely dedicated to. Though a shortened version shocked me upon its released date i appreciate my brother Ye for helping me produce my most vulnerable, personal and soulful album to date. I think that our collaboration on this album shows and proves to add to the culture we creatives promise to push forward! I never meant for my passion to be mistaken for ungratefulness however i'm always open to agreeing to disagree, that doesnt take away from the bond I share with not only Ye but all of my G.O.O.D Music family. Yall know ima keep shit a buck! #KTSE and last but not least I want to thank everyone for the love and support of #KTSE! 💕

Teyana seemed genuinely upset about the seven-song treatment her first major release received and still seems hopeful that there will be another release although she can’t promise it.

“This album is so dear to me, and I got more to talk about, because I just wanted to get more creative,” the R&B artist said.

After the media brought attention to her recent interviews, Taylor took to Instagram to clarify what she meant.

Her statement read, in part: “For a better clarity of my “publicized emotions” toward my album…I LOVE MY ALBUM and never said that I didnt AND BELIEVE IN MY ALBUM with all of me. My complaints never came from a place of anger but more so from a place of hurt that I felt that I owed the world more. After 5 years of patience I could have anticipated the culture would be hurt that all I had to offer them was 23 mins. I have a very loyal and active fan base that I’m extremely indebted to and that I am extremely dedicated to.
