Teyana Taylor is gearing up for her retirement with her Farewell Tour in November.
The singer announced the dates of the 12-city Last Rose Petal Tour, which kicks off in San Francisco on November 7th.
“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard,” Taylor captioned the post on Instagram. “However for every goodbye God makes the next hello closer. Come out and watch me, leave it all out on the stage… One last time… Just for you & as my last rose petal falls, I say farewell….🥀”
At the end of the year last year, Teyana spoke candidly about feeling unappreciated by her label as a Black woman in the industry.
She complained that she felt “super unappreciated as an artist, receiving little to no real push from the ‘machine,’ constantly getting the shorter end of the stick, being overlooked.”
Taylor added, “I’m retiring this chapter of my story with the comfort that I can depart with peace of mind seeing that all the hard work & passion was indeed loved & supported somewhere in the world.”
Following her announcement, Teyana received an outpour of support including from her idol, Janet Jackson. “Teyana, you have an undeniable gift from God. Don’t ever let that go. You bring something so special to the industry and you continue to have such an impact on this world,” Jackson wrote on Instagram.
“Imagine if I gave up after my first or second album didn’t hit #1, or win any awards?” she added. “We do this for the love, the passion, and the fans.”
Jackson continued, “Never forget, a talent like yours is unstoppable. I luv you and know that I’m here for you always. I hope you enjoy your special day. ??? #BlackGirlMagic ??.”
Teyana Taylor spoke more in-depth about her decision to step away from music in an interview on Cam Newton’s BET series Sip ‘N Smoke.
“At the end of the day, I’m a mom first,” she said, as reported by Rolling Out. “A mom, a wife, a woman. And I think for me, I put in a lot of work. I work very, very hard. So, If you feel unheard and unseen–like how I said earlier with my husband. He sees me, he hears me. I take that sh– serious. Everything I do. So if you’re my husband or I’m signed, everybody that I’m aligned with should see me. They should hear me. They should feel me. If you don’t see me, hear me, or feel me, it’s a dub for you.”
