Teyana Taylor’s ‘We Got Love’ Is A Family & Afrocentric Affair

Late last year, Teyana Taylor finally released her all but forgotten track “We Got Love.” The feel-good anthem was originally supposed to appear on Taylor’s 2018 album K.T.S.E., but sample clearance issues prevented it from making an appearance. Thankfully, the track has gotten a new lease on life as Teyana has now dropped a family-centric and afrocentric video that complements the inspiring audio. And this time, she managed to get that sample of Ms. Lauryn Hill cleared to use in the clip.

“We Got Love” is an anthem that asks us all to spread love to family, friends, ourselves and our legacy. For the video Teyana, once again in the director’s chair, delivers an Afro-psychedelic production. The video opens with the camera panning out showing Teyana sitting cross-legged on an ornate throne with her daughter Junie and husband Iman Shumpert on her side. She proudly sings the song's lyrics against visuals of an African village, Black power symbolism, teaching and nurturing children and a people united. Ms. Lauryn Hill delivers the coda to the song against a bed of strings, sharing a message that money and fame doesn't bring you happiness as home videos of Teyana and family are shown.

"We Got Love" is expected to appear on Taylor’s upcoming untitled album – which was supposed to drop on the day the song dropped but we're still waiting. While we don't know what’s happening for sure, we do know that Junie’s momma is staying busy in front of and behind the camera and spreading the love.
