AceShowbiz - Teyana Taylor has her own way kicking off her new album "The Album". Making the the 23-track album as personal as it can be, the 29-year-old artist decided to include the audio of her husband Iman Shumpert's paramedic call when she was in labor for their first child back in December 2015.
She put the emotional audio in the album's very first track which was appropriately titled "Intro". In the said audio, Iman can be heard frantically making aphone call to a paramedic as Teyana welcomed their baby girl, Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr., inside their home in 2015. "She's having a baby!" so Iman exclaims on the phone. "I have my daughter in my hands."
It successfully made fans who listened to it cry as one wrote on Twitter, "Teyana Taylor's Intro. Omg I'm crying. Iman!!!! I would have 25 of his kids if he wanted me to if I was her. So sweet." Another person echoed the sentiment and said, "The intro to Teyana Taylor album got me crying. He crying. She crying omg."
Prior to the release of the album, which was out on Friday, June 19, in honor of Juneteenth, Teyana held a listening party that was attended by several famous names including Cardi B, Lena Waithe and Cynthia Erivo. Cardi also brought her almost 2-year-old daughter, Kulture Kiarai Cephus, to the Beverly Hills event.
Gracing her first red carpet, Kulture looked cute a rainbow print dress, Nike Air Force 1's and a bright yellow bow. "When I see you I know I did something right for a blessing like you," Cardi wrote in the caption of her Instagram post featuring a photo of her baby girl.
The album arrives after Teyana confirmed her second pregnancy in a new music video for "Wake Up Love", which hit the Internet on Friday, June 12. In the video, Teyana showed off her growing baby bump alongside her husband and their four-year-old daughter. The singer was either covered up or hiding her belly in the video until she bore her baby bump as she lied next to Iman in bed and their daughter kisses and caresses mom's stomach.
