Teyana Taylor is stepping away from her music career. In an Instagram post shared on Friday, Taylor thanked her fans for their support streaming her music on Spotify before she dropped the bombshell that she is retiring from her music career after feeing under-appreciated.

"Thank you. I ain't gone front in times of feeling super under appreciated as a artist, receiving little to no real push from the 'machine', constantly getting the shorter end of the stick, being overlooked, I mean the list on and on lol..." she began the post, perhaps referring to her 2021 Grammys nomination snub.

"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 put in was indeed loved & supported somewhere in the world!" she wrote.

"To all my supporters from day 1 & all my new ones I love you and I thank you for everything & don't worry y'all know." Taylor added that "all hustlers have the understanding that when one door closes another will open," so perhaps other projects are still in the works, despite her music retirement.
