Teyana Taylor on Updated ‘K.T.S.E.’ Album: ‘We Ain’t Getting One’

After promising fans a “completed version” of her album K.T.S.E. (Keep That Same Energy), Teyana Taylor has axed the updated release.

The unexpected news comes days after the Harlem native told Real 92.3’s Big Boy in the Morning fans could expect her revised album this past weekend. When no new streaming or digital retailer links surfaced, fans went into a frenzy and questioned her on Twitter.

Taylor responded, “A lot of clearance issues, shit takes time. At this point, I will leave album the way it is & will just debut the extended records thru my visuals!”

As previously mentioned in her lengthy conversation on Big Boy, the album suffered several holdups after being unable to secure samples from two music greats. “It’s because of those missing verses,” she said. “At the end of ‘Issues,’ I had the Sade piece in there. The end of ‘Rose in Harlem,’ I had [Lauryn Hill’s] ‘Lost Ones’ in there, and I was really talking that shit.”

After being drilled more by her followers and other spectators, the singer tweeted, “I guess we ain’t getting one.”

We can only wonder if Taylor has changed her tune on pointing the blame on everyone and not just solely on G.O.O.D. Music label head Kanye West, “I’d have to blame a little bit of everybody because we set the date and we had the listening party, and then we had clearance issues,” she said. “As far as the clearance issues, I don’t know. I feel like everybody plays a part.”
