Teyana Taylor Takes Us Back in Time with “Undercover” [VIDEO]

Teyana Taylor

Teyana Taylor has always known how to turn heads. Hell, she caught most of our attention as a young star on MTV’s show My Super Sweet 16. Keeping in throwback fashion, the singer is revisiting her Bell Biv DeVoe-inspired song “Undercover” from her summertime project, The Cassette Tape 1994. She hinted her love for the ’90s style during a Hot 97 Summer Jam performance, and has been pushing forward with it since them.

“Undercover,” directed by Elijah Steen, is a true ode to the singer’s favorite era. There’s clear inspiration from a number of sitcoms, trends and dances. She channels Rosie Perez’s fierce moves from the opening scene of Do The Right Thing.  All of her passion comes out as she sings about loving someone who is currently dealing with someone else. Intensity grows with every telling line, yet the energy shown onscreen gives “Undercover” a fun edge.

Teyana unleashed “Touch Me” last month. The seductive visual put the singer’s post-baby body on full display. It’s the second visual off of The Cassette Tape 1994. The 5-track project features production from Kanye West, Da Internz, and J.R. Rotem.

Take a look at the entertaining visual up above, and be sure to relive that ’90s feel by listening to her tape.
