All the stars flouted social distancing advisories to attend the album release party hosted by Teyana Taylor, and rightly so.
There is no excuse for missing out on the opportunity to experience The Album with its creator, in her most comfortable zone.
The star-studded listening party took place on Wednesday 17 June 2020, at a private mansion in Beverly Hills, LA.
Teyana Taylor is a perfectionist in her craft and the roll-out of The Album truly highlighted the amount of effort she puts into setting the stage for her musical works.
The Album is Teyana Taylor’s third studio album and it dropped on Friday 19 June 2020, a special commemorative day for black Americans.
This year’s Juneteenth marks 155 years since “Union general Gordon Granger read federal orders in Galveston, Texas, that all previously enslaved people in Texas were free.”
The day of observance also comes at a time when blacks are taking the fight against systemic racism up a few notches.

With emotions running wild and tensions palpable, the one thing we truly needed was the soothing sounds of Ms Shumpert.
On her third outing, Teyana enclosed herself with the talents of powerful black women. Her guests on the project include Missy Elliott, Ms Lauryn Hill, Kehlani.
DaVido also made the final cut on Killa, the potential hit single on the 23-track LP. Check out the full tracklist below:
