‼️ Teyana Taylor - Keep that Same Energy // Mini Review + Track Ratings 🙂.
🚀 8 lil warm, sensual, hugging tracks gifted to us by Ms. Teyana Taylor. Truth be told, this is my first Teyana Taylor album I’ve ever listened to. What I was really hyped for was even more “Kanye West” production, but this time with a R&B/Soul twist of course. I was not disappointed, FAR FROM IT IN FACT. Upon playing “No Manners”, i knew Kanye brought out the big guns for this one. Im not a huge R&B fan, so I’ll try to describe Teyana Taylor’s style: A much more “sexy” Lauryn Hill mixed with some Alicia Keys and a sprinkle of Beyonce’s Diva persona? Idk if what im saying makes sense (hence my IG username 😉) but basically what im tryna say is this album BUMPS! Kanye’s production all over this album reminds me his of early 2000’s R&B soulful beats (Alicia Keys “You Dont Know my name”, Monica’s “Knock Knock”) + his chopping on Lil Wayne’s Carter 3 tracks “Comfortable” and “Let the beat build”.
🐻 Overall: Take Ye’s World Class sampling, mix this with Teyana’s catchy hooks, her ear for beautiful melodies, and ability to ride each track’s drums, claps, and drops, this is def up there for AOTY 😶. Teyana Taylor > SZA 😬😬🤕😅.
