Teyana Taylor says that she would not let anyone hear her forthcoming album before it was ready.
“They be like, ‘Well damn, T, can you send the album in? Can we hear something?’” the Harlem singer-rapper says during an interview with Complex. “But I’m just like, ‘I’ll send it in when it’s right.’ I learned that from ‘Ye. Like, he don’t care who is in the room. If he don’t feel like it sound right, you can’t hear it yet. When I played ‘Ye the album, we all went over to his house. He was like, ‘You mind if I have a copy?’ I was like, ‘I rather just get it right, then I’ll give you a copy.’ All he could do is laugh, because he knows I get it from him.”
Taylor signed with G.O.O.D. Music in 2012, and is set to release her debut album, 7, in conjunction with Def Jam Recordings October 21.
Also in October, Taylor is slated to embark upon the Testimony Live Tour with August Alsina, unveil her Taylor’d Textures extensions line and star with Diggy Simmons in new BET show The Start Up.
The songstress says that members of G.O.O.D. Music are “out in Mexico recording with ‘Ye.” No word on whose or what project the collective is working on, but Taylor’s “Maybe” single featuring Pusha T and Yo Gotti is as follows:
