I'm not appreciated enough has an artist - Teyana quits music

R&B star Teyana Taylor has given up on music. 

She is hanging up her microphone after expressing her frustration at life as a "super under appreciated" artist.

The "Lose Each Other" singer was left fuming last month when her critically-acclaimed June release, The Album, failed to receive a single nomination for the 2021 Grammy Awards.

She took to Instagram on Friday, Dec. 4, to share her Spotify statistics for 2020, which revealed her music had been streamed 162.8 million times by 15.2 million listeners in 92 countries.

However, Teyana, who is signed to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music, expressed her struggles to be recognized as a force in the music industry as she announced her plans to retire.

"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 (goes) on and on lol.."

She added: "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!"

Teyana, who turns 30 on Dec. 10, went on to suggest she wasn't quitting the entertainment industry altogether, adding:

"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 all hustlers have the understanding that when one door closes another will open...either that or I'm pickin da locks petunia!!! So wassup".
