R&B empress Teyana Taylor has finally given her fans a glimpse into her much anticipated project, THE ALBUM, by dropping her new single, “We Got Love.” The song is an upbeat, infectious tune with Teyana’s usual clever lyrics and powerful voice standing out. To celebrate, she is partnering with Def Jam Recordings and Courvoisier to headline her own Art Basel Miami concert series on December 6.
THE ALBUM is set to be released in early 2020, but it has been revealed that this specific single, “We Got Love,” was originally made for her Kanye West produced, mega-hit album K.T.S.E. What is truly special about this specific track is that it is a remaining gem from one of only five albums West produced with G.O.O.D Music and Def Jam Recordings back in 2018. Teyana revealed she has been holding onto the newly released track for a while. “I’ve always felt this was such a special record and wanted it to have the right moment,” she said in a statement.
The success of K.T.S.E, which stands for “Keep That Same Energy,” gave Teyana the recognition she deserves. The album included the top 10 R&B hit, “Gonna Love Me,” which amassed over 61 million streams on Spotify. Wu Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah, Method Man and Raekwon even created a remix to the track, with Teyana directing the music video. The final track “WTP (Work This P***y)” also became a huge hit at the start of 2019. The music video for this provocative track was nominated for “Best Dance Performance” at the 32nd annual BET Soul Train Awards.
Following K.T.S.E, the R&B singer dropped two singles in 2019 both seeing astronomical success. Back in August, she dropped the funk-infused track “How You Want It?” featuring the young rapper King Combs. That following November, she dropped “Morning” featuring Kehlani, which stands to be her biggest hit to date amassing over 4 million streams on Spotify. Teyana, occasionally referred to as “Spike Tee,” directs her own music videos. The videos for “How You Want It?” and “Morning” both received over 18 million and over 11 million respectively.
