“Make Your Move” F. Wale

    It looks like 2012 will be the year we’ll see a career resurgence from Teyana Taylor, who you might remember for her 2008 single, “Google Me.” Since then, she’s grown up considerably — she’s 21 now — and is ready to drop her first release as part of Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music family. She’s busy right now prepping an EP, The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor, that sounds promising based on its first leak, the Wale-featured “Make Your Move.”

    The Maybach Music Group spitter is right at home over the pseudo-throwback beat, which would not have sounded out of place on any of his mixtapes or albums. But Taylor? Well, it’s really all up to her marketing team to give this one a solid push. It’s got radio-play potential for sure, but my one issue is the fact that nothing on the radio these days really sounds like this. And that could easily work against her. Stream the track below.
