The music video shines a light on police brutality, the black lives matter movement, and pays homage to those who we have lost to it all. With video clips and images of pivotal moments that shifted the civil rights moment, as well as the black lives matter movement.

“I literally can do everything. I never look at anything as being impossible,” Taylor explains. “I exhaust all options to make what happen when I need to make happen.”

Part of what makes Teyana stand out from the rest is her ability to move with precision and poise in everything she does. From the studio to the stage, every idea is a project with a clear vision all of her own.

With her musical inspirations like Aaliyah, Teena Marie, Mint Condition and Janet Jackson speaking to her soul, Teyana is aware her mission is larger than life. “I’m working on me every day and I think that’s my purpose,” she says, comparing her life to a never-ending book. “I’m still going, still mastering and being a better me.”
