So from the looks of this 6 minute mini-doc on 11 year old MaeYa Carter Ryan, we have a prodigy on our hands right here in Chicago. ” The sixth grader belts out, tears into, and soars through the music of the classic performers to whom she’s constantly compared: Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone…” states The Reader, after recently publishing a feature on the Bronzeville native. Watch the clip below and be sure to check out her feature in The Reader today.
Teyana Taylor is making herself known in the world of hip-hop. The Harlem native is rapping about her love for the bad boys in her latest track, aptly titled “Bad Boys,” featuring Honey Cocaine and B. Mack and produced by DJ Mustard, who is responsible for Tyga’s “Rack City.”
After years of being plagued by label politics the young singer, rapper, and actress is putting out her dope grooves as a free agent, hoping to satisfy her fans. In the meantime, she has also appeared on Kanye West’s album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and toured with Game.
So far this year, she dropped her new soulful single “Make Your Move” featuring Wale. Live instrumentation and Michael Jackson sampling give the R&B track an edge. Her second single, “DUI” drops today,Valentine’s Day. It’s all ahead of her upcoming free EP, The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor (available online February 29).
KarmaloopTV recently sat down with Miss Taylor to talk about her new record with Wale, her record label situation, and haters on Twitter. Check the clip above.
