Album: Teyana Taylor - VII

Pretty sure you don't have to google her anymore. Last month, G.O.O.D Music's first lady released her debut album, "VII". I have been waiting since like 05' to get an album and am grateful that it's finally here. Teyana really outdid herself,creating one the best R&B albums (or albums in general) in recent years. Throughout the project,she pours her heart out with low,smokey vocals reminiscent of Brandy and Lauren Hill. The lead single #Maybe ft. Pusha T and Yo Gotti is a sexy club banger detailing all the things her and her dude are going to get into after they leave (if you catch my drift). #DoNotDisturb ft. Chris Brown has a sensual,bass heavy beat with bare harmonies in the hook. The two go back and forth,almost whispering, about their sexual escapade behind closed doors. #BrokenHeartedGirl ft. Fabolous almost doesn't sound like someone who's crying beside their bed.Instead, Ms. Taylor lets a guy know that she's been hurt before so don't waste your time doing all these romantic things, just give her a good time (check the Teena Marie sample at the end). Other standouts for me were #JustDifferent and #Request. The whole album is FIRE and cohesive as hell. I'm excited to see more performances and videos from the talented singer/dancer/designer. Make sure you pick up a copy. Harlem what up?!
