image.jpg

Teyana Taylor has dropped a new mixtape that is sure to usher in an extended fanbase for her. Her new effort, The Cassette Tape 1994, is a 5-song mixtape that lends its focus to R&B of the nineties. She pays respects to some of the genre's biggest and brightest acts through samples and interpolations of such classics as KP & Envyi's Swing My Way, Bell Biv Devoe's Poison, and Tony Toni Tonè's Anniversary. So much has changed within the landscape of R&B, and a number of music fans are clinging to music of that very era with hopes of hanging on to that pure essence. Producers through the 5 tracks include Kanye West, J.R. Rotem, and Da Internz! The memories and the nostalgia evoked in listening to Teyana's vocals on this mixtape make it the classic that she was aiming it to be.
