REVIEW: Teyana Taylor - K.T.S.E
With so much hype for Kanye's album, his joint project with Cudi, Pusha bodying Drake, and the new Nas, it seemed like social media forgot about Teyana Taylor.
So did the First Lady of G.O.O.D Music deliver, or can we skip this?
K.T.S.E. (Keep That Same Energy) is Teyana Taylor’s second studio album. “No Manners”, describes her heavy infatuation with an unnamed lover. Although she has a man, she doesn’t plan to sit still or let others control her. The track is likely dedicated to her husband Iman Shupert.
On “Gonna Love Me”, Teyana sings over a soulful Delfonics sample about getting through the troubles in a relationship, and finding love in the struggle.
“Hurry” features Kanye West vocally. The track is very sexual as Teyana asks to “take your hands and grab” her “fatty.” She even moans to end a verse displaying her sexual emotion.
Teyana sings about being willing to have a three way with her husband, Iman Shumpert, and another woman in "3Way." She says she is willing to let another woman into her bed because she knows it turns her husband on, and that they don’t have feelings for these girls, they simply use them to explore their sexuality. The track also features Ty Dolla $ign.
WTP is the final track on Taylor’s sophomore album, K.T.S.E. The track is in the style of the music of the Harlem Ballroom scene. The music is accompanied by a forms of dancing and runway walks, the most popular being ‘voguing’ which is an interpretive dance based on runway walks and model photo shoot poses.
Overall, it's better than what I thought it would be. Kanye really comes through with the production on this album, and shows why he is one of the best. Teyana showed why she is signed to G.O.O.D Music.
