EXCLUSIVE: Teyana Taylor Talks October Debut Album, Relationship With Iman Shumpert, More

Teyana Taylor finally gets her D Day (Drop Date)!

After years of label struggles, shelving, and what not, the R&B songstress announces October 21, 2014 for the release of her long-delayed debut album. “Don’t Sleep. #VII #Oct.21 #ItsTime,” wrote Taylor on Twitter.

We caught up Teyana recently and she gave us some update on the project, which is led by the single “Maybe,” featuring Pusha T & Yo Gotti, which she shot a video for last week.

Check out our quick chat with Teyana:

The present: I just joined August Alsina's tour, we go on tour August 14th, my album comes out October 21 … I'm excited about that. My sitcom on BET with Diggy Simmons is coming out … we just working.

Finally: October 21st is firm; even if it's not the 21st, it's definitely in October. It's not moving no further than that.

Kanye West: We just sent the album over to him … you know for him to add his little things. He's super excited about the album; the whole building is excited about the album.

Features: Yo Gotti, Pusha T, August [Alsina] of course, I would love to work with Miguel, Big Sean … we are trying to narrow it down.

Relationship and Gossip: All you can do is make sure you have that foundation and you build that foundation for when your relationship does come public. I was in Hawaii mining my business and then that happened, so it's whatever. We show you what we choose to show you. People try to base you life off of pictures or whatever, but I'm happy, my man is happy … can't nobody break us a part. Our foundation is very very strong.
