Teyana Taylor declared her retirement from music last year, months after the release of her third album, simply titled The Album. She said she was “retiring this phase” of her career because she was “ignored,” which she blamed on problems with her label, Def Jam. During an Instagram Live, she claimed, “I always feel alone, I constantly feel under-appreciated, I constantly feel failed…there is practically no push,” adding that she had sought to be dropped from the label “on almost 10 separate occasions.” Taylor appears to be on the verge of announcing her retirement, but she will not do it without a farewell tour, which she revealed today.
Taylor will embark on The Last Rose Petal Farewell Tour, which will begin in November. She remarked on social media, “How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so difficult?” “However, God brings the next hello closer with each goodbye. Come come and see me let it all hang out on stage… Once more… I say goodbye as my last rose petal falls, just for you.”
The tour kicks up on November 7 in San Francisco and runs for the rest of the month, culminating on November 30 in Atlanta. Pre-sale tickets will go on sale on September 23, with regular admission tickets going on sale on September 24 at 10 a.m.
