Sneaker queen Teyana Taylor is officially apart of the G.O.O.D. music family. Under the creative genius of Kanye West, Taylor appeared on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and other tracks from the imprint that’s home to John Legend, Q-Tip, Common, Big Sean and others. This G.O.O.D. news has been a long time coming.
Since breaking on the scene as a kid on Star Trak then releasing her first single “Google Me,” the Harlem native has laid low. She’s released a few notable records, including a “Marvin’s Room” remake titled “Her Room.” However, she recently compiled an EP, The Miseducation of Teyana Taylor, which featured Wale, Fabolous and West Coast raptress Honey Cocaine.
No word on her first major moves with the label that’s overseen by Island Def Jam. However, we have to say, this is a G.O.O.D. look on her.

“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-talent
ed young singer-songw riter, rapper, dancer/chore ographer, 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 Misunderstan
ding 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.”
