[SONG] Teyana Taylor x “8th Wonder”

A great new (and surprising) Teyana Taylor song came knocking at my door after news of both her recent signing to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label earlier this week and her primary writing credit on Nicki Minaj’s new single “Right By My Side”. The G.O.O.D. news, indeed, has spawned a re-interest in her debut mixtape ‘The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor’, released in March 2012. “8th Wonder”, produced by longtime collaborators the Neptunes, is a softer, feminine side of the usually tomboy-ish Taylor. Still, seeking Teyana’s true talents as a singer-sometimes-rapper isn’t a problem, but things get sketchy when you look back at her previous releases. Teyana’s “Google Me Baby” was a musical step backwards, her “Turn My Swag On” remix verse is beyond painful to listen to, and the location of the songs created during the six years lost on Interscope Records still baffles me. But then, songs like “8th Wonder” and her cover of Drake’s “Marvin’s Room” shows some artist centrality that could be honed – with Kanye’s assistance of course.
