Teyana Taylor had a lot to talk about when she stopped by Power 105′s “The Breakfast Club” on Wednesday to premiere her new single “Maybe” featuring Pusha T and Yo Gotti.

Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy grilled her about her relationship with ex-fiancé Brandon Jennings and his new girl, Tae Heckard.

“I have 50 records that I technically can’t put out,” she said. “I do a million things, but have out music.”

But now she’s ready to silence her haters (she saves screenshots of mean tweets) with the release of “Maybe,” which officially drops on May 13.

Plus, hear what she said about her infamous feud with Rihanna that caused her to lose her adidas sneaker deal, and how Beyoncé has kept her motivated with her words of encouragement.
