Teyana Taylor’s long-awaited video for “WTP” has finally been released.
The video, which features inspiration from the cult-classic documentary Paris Is Burning and ballroom culture as a whole, follows members of different Houses headed out to a ball. Teyana, who is from the “House Of Petunia,” appears to be in distress as she tries to figure out why she’s not invited to get 10s across the board with the other Vogue houses. However, thanks to her “fairy c**t motha” and some serious Cinderella vibes, Teyana is whisked away to to the ball, where she performs for the crowd. The video features appearances by Lena Waithe as well as Taylor’s husband, basketball player Iman Shumpert.
The eight-minute long visual was directed by Taylor, Gregory Jones, and was produced by The Auntie Production.
On Twitter earlier this week, Taylor wrote of her issues with her label Def Jam delaying the release of the visuals. Originally, the video was slated to drop on Jan. 19.
“My [Instagram] page is gone because I’m upset at @defjam for not dropping my damn “WTP” video on time, per usual,” she wrote.
We’re glad the video is finally out, and fans of the KTSE musician are singing the video’s praises on social media. What do you think? Check out the video above and let us know.
