After a long-awaited arrival for Teyana Taylor’s sophomore album, Keep That Same Energy, it debuted at #2 on the Top R & B album charts and #17 on the Billboard 200. Shortly after the album’s release Taylor visited Big Boy’s Neighborhood and expressed how although her album was delayed it was still not completely to her liking. She then promised fans would get a completely updated version of her album within a few days that included a Sade piece and a Lauryn Hill sample amongst other modifications and improvements.
A new anticipation lingered for the new updated version of Keep That Same Energy in which eventually turned into impatience. A fan took to Twitter to ask Teyana when the updated version of her album would finally be released. Teyana replied:
I guess we ain’t getting one. ?♀ https://t.co/VBKQqYaHBy

Teyana further explained that a lot of clearance issues were the main reason her updated album had yet. Nonetheless, Taylor stopped by Ebro In The Morning on Thursday [July 12] and gave fans more details about her KTSE rollout. In an interview with Ebro, Teyana explained that she did not initially know there would be a five-album G.O.O.D. Music rollout involving Pusha T, Nas, Kanye, and Kid Cudi until her last meeting. She went on to state, “I didn’t know ahead of time that there would be no singles, no visuals. I didn’t know none of that. But I knew it was going to be the five-album thing, [Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, you know, the biggest. That’s the way they sauced it up.”
Overall, Teyana claims that she really just wanted to get her music out whether or not it was a part of the five album rollout or not. Fans can look forward to what was supposed to be the updated version of her album to be released as visuals instead.
