Teyana Taylor has announced her final farewell tour.
Taylor first announced that she wanted to step away from music back in 2020, following the release of her third studio album, The Album. In addition to disagreements with her label, she cited wanting to focus on her daughter Junie, who she shares with NBA player Iman Shumpert.

“At the end of the day, I’m a mom first,” she explained last April during an interview with Cam Newton on his BET series Sip ‘N Smoke. “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 shit serious. Everything that 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.”
She concluded: “And I felt like the label wasn’t really hearing me and seeing me. I felt underappreciated. So, for my mental health, my mental well-being, for my kids, let me just put this on ice for a little [bit]. It’s not that I retired permanently. It’s more like, I just don’t feel like I want to move another inch for a company.”
Tickets will be going on sale on Friday, May 6th at 10:00 AM, local time through Live Nation.
