Teyana Taylor Says G.O.O.D. Music Pushed Her To Retirement
At the height of her singing career, at just 30 years old, Teyana Taylor suddenly retired from music in late-2020. The announcement came shortly after Taylor’s acclaimed The Album was snubbed by the Grammy Awards, and until now, the versatile performer hadn’t explained why she walked away.
Teyana Taylor’s retirement shocked many in the music industry. None other than the legendary Janet Jackson publicly pleaded with Taylor to keep her career going. In a April 2021 interview with NFL star Cam Newton, Taylor called out her former record label, Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music, for making her feel underappreciated.
“I put in a lot of work. I work very, very hard. So, if you feel unheard and unseen — like how I said earlier with my husband, he sees me, he hears me. I take that sh*t serious. Everything that I do. So if you’re my husband, or I’m signed, everybody that I’m aligned with should see me. They should hear me. They should feel me. If you don’t see me, hear me, or feel me, it’s a dub for you.
“I felt like the label wasn’t really hearing me and seeing me. I felt underappreciated. So, for my mental health, my mental well-being, for my kids, let me just put this on ice for a little. It’s not that I retired permanently. It’s more like, I just don’t feel like I want to move another inch for a company.”
