Every time Teyana Taylor’s name comes up, I usually poke fun by saying that I’m not sure what she does for G.O.O.D. besides looking hot on Instagram. If I should ever say that again, feel free to remind me about “Maybe” because this shit is flames.
For the track, Taylor calls on “big bro” Pusha T and Yo Gotti (“I ain’t hangin’ with no thots shawty, Powerball, this your shot shawty”) who both eschew the usual off-target rap feature trend by turning in verses that match the song’s content. And that message is that a special someone’s got Teyana’s fires burning as she opts for a spoken word flow. She also turns in a strong chorus where she continues to sing about the source of her infatuation.
“Had to pause, wait a minute,
Almost tapped out when he started swimming
A little cocky I can deal with that
‘Cause you put it on me now I need parts of that”
So, if there was ever a time that an artist made me eat my words, “Maybe” was Teyana serving me a delicious slice of humble pie.
