After nearly 15 years in the business multi talented mother and wife #TeyanaTaylor has officially announced that she is walking away from the music industry due to lack of appreciation for her artistry!
Teyana took to Instagram Friday afternoon within a post that displayed her streaming stats from Spotify for the year matched with a lengthy post thanking her fans for their support and revealing the big news.
“Wow, who did that? Y’all did that! 🥺Thank you 💗 I ain’t gone front in times of feeling super under appreciated as a artist, receiving little to no real push from the “machine”, constantly getting the shorter end of the stick, being overlooked, I mean the list on and on lol.. “
