Teyana Taylor Signs To G.O.O.D. Music


And the G.O.O.D. Music roster just keeps getting bigger! Teyana Taylor has just announced her official signing to Kanye West’s growing brand, with distribution handled by Island Def Jam Music Group.

Here’s how the official press release reports it:

G.O.O.D. Music, the independent record label formed by 18-time Grammy Award-winner (and 43-time Grammy nominee) Kanye West and signed to an exclusive long-term worldwide agreement last year with the Island Def Jam Music Group (IDJMG), has signed Teyana Taylor, the multi-talented young singer-songwriter, rapper, dancer/choreographer, and actress to G.O.O.D.’s expanding artist roster.

Details of Teyana’s first album and single releases will be revealed in the weeks and months ahead. Meanwhile, her first mixtape, The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor, released last month, has spun off a pair of hot new tracks: “DUI” featuring fellow Def Jam artists Fabolous and Jadakiss, and “Make Your Move” featuring Wale. The mixtape evokes classic ’80s and ’90s R&B, paying homage to Teyana’s influences including Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, and especially Lauryn Hill.

We saw this coming from a mile away, but it’s good—no pun intended!—to finally have some confirmation. We can’t wait to see what this triple threat brings to the game. Teyana, it’s your time! We here at VIBE couldn’t be more proud of her.
