G.O.O.D. Music signee Teyana Taylor did some backtracking today (July 2, 2018), explaining that the music on her album Keep That Same Energy won’t be updated after all.
Dropped on June 23, 2018, the eight song-album included singles, according to Taylor, missing samples because G.O.O.D. wasn’t able to clear them before the time of the launch.
In an interview following the K.T.S.E. album drop with radio talk show host Big Boy, Taylor explained “Issues/Hold On” was missing a Sade sample and “Rose in Harlem” originally included a reference to Lauryn Hill’s “Lost Ones.”
In the same interview, Taylor promised the album would be updated either on June 30th or July 1st. When fans started peppering her with queries about the timing of the update, she admitted on Twitter that the update wasn’t coming after all. “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!” she wrote.
