Roommates, Teyana Taylor is officially coming for the number one spot this summer, as her new album is just weeks away. To get fans excited about the project, she recently dropped a sneak peek at the visuals for her new video that is filled with an abundance of inspiration from the King Of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.

Teyana Taylor has showed us numerous times that she is nothing to play with on the dancefloor, most notably in Kanye West’s video for “Fade”—but now she is taking things up a notch and channeling her inner Michael Jackson.

Posting to Instagram, Teyana posted a short clip of her new video “Bare With Me” and it’s clear that Michael Jackson’s 1987 hit song and video “Smooth Criminal” was the inspiration. In the brief clip, Teyana is backed by four dancers, all in different color trench coats and hats pulled down low—as they do some of MJ’s famous pop-locking moves.

On Teyana’s new project, simply titled “THE ALBUM,” she promises, “no games this time around.” She also recently debuted the album cover, which is heavily Grace Jones-inspired. This will be Teyana’s first album since her 2018 release “K.T.S.E.” produced in its entirety by Kanye West during his “five albums in four weeks” producing run that also included albums from Nas, Pusha T, Kids See Ghosts and Kanye himself.
