Teyana Taylor Signs to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music

Kanye West and Teyana Taylor

Teyana Taylor is feeling G.O.O.D. After months of rumors, the Harlem singer has officially signed a deal with Kanye West’s label in conjunction Island Def Jam, it was announced today.

She joins a roster that includes Big Sean, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, John Legend, Q-Tip, and more. Her G.O.O.D. Music/Island Def Jam debut is due later this year. More details will be revealed in the weeks and months ahead.

The 21-year-old was featured on Kanye’s critically-acclaimed album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and released her free EP The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor in March, with appearances from Wale, Jadakiss, and Fabolous.

Teyana, who starred in Madea’s Big Happy Family, was previously signed to Pharrell’s Star Trak label and parted ways earlier this year. Her debut single “Google Me” was released in 2008, but her album From a Planet Called Harlem never saw the light of day.

    @Sassyandclassy, her mixtape sounded mature and yes she is young but can make good music. Ye is a great mentor and can make her big and evolve her into a great artist.

    Another solid piece to the GOOD Music Fam. The greatest latest label around! GOOD, Roc, and Aftermath aka Shady 2.0 are the only labels that keep it true to hip hop and also can make it big mainstream wise. But GOOD has to be the best cause Kanye by himself is the best artist in this era and now he has a team were he can make all of them big and make them better. Also YM can suck it! Lol Only fuck with drake and MMG is alright I like wale, Ross and lil bit of Meek. GOOD talent wise > every label around


  7. Jorge

    I love how ye keeps pushing music into the right direction! Getting talented and unique artists and let them get out their dreams. GOOD keeps getting better.

    What A G.O.O.D. Move

    Yeah!!! So happy for TT!
    Now, the work begins. Shes got talent and has a good team around her so she’s on good starting ground. What she needs to do is shake off the the public impression of her being a ‘hanger on’. By that i mean the preception of her is that all she does is hang out with her famous friends and has nothing going on in her own life.Fingers crossed they release new music to change that proception because this girl has serious talent. Her mixtape ‘The misunderstandings of Teyanna Taylor’ proves that.
    If Kanye and Def Jam play this right, in 2 or 3 years time she will be huge. Plus, the fans need to really get behind her and show die hard support.
    This girl is super talented and i’m glad she’s found a home that will nature her potential. So excited for her! :)

    YES! So happy for her!

    I am proud and happy to see that Teyana Taylor signed to GOOD Music Records. I believe Teyana Taylor has true talent in singing and dancing. I will always remember Teyana Taylor’s great singing on the intro to Kanye West’s Dark Fantasy song. Working with Kanye West will most likely bring out the best in Teyana Taylor. I am excited for her and the GOOD Music family.

  17. Dope

    I thought she was already G.O.O.D b/c she did the back up vocals for “Dark Twisted Fantasy”. But good for her.

    P.s. Why they got a pic of Ye lookin like the devil? Lmao

    @Dope, She’s probably been signed for awhile but it just wasn’t officially announced…or maybe it went through some contractual changes before becoming official.


  18. csdklk

    Teyana made a dope EP, she deserves a record deal after that. That EP just flowed so well together, could have been her album.
