Today she delivers a new installment for #TeyanaTuesdays with a freestyle of "Champions". Along with her take on the record she has presented a visual that's boasts a artistic yet edgy take on her artistry.

 Teyana has also revealed new details about her next album which is the follow-up to VII that was released in November of 2014. In a recent interview with W Magazine she goes into detail about the message that she wants to portray with the upcoming project.

"GOOD Music just opened a compound in Los Angeles, so they let all of us just go in and vibe. I've been laying down a lot of different ideas and trying to figure out what I'm feeling musically and where I want to go musically. I'll be dropping something really soon. I've got some big stuff in the works. With my music, I always express what I'm feeling right at that moment. Just having had Junie, I have a lot to talk about: Junie, love, and being a young adult woman. It's almost like a journal. I just want to tell my story."

"I want girls and women of any age to know that we are human and come from the same place. My music comes from the heart. I want to speak to women and men about real issues that we all go through. You've got to talk about what's going on in the world today -- there's a lot going on -- but you also got to talk about how it feels; what makes us emotional; what makes us happy."

On Who Has Influenced The Sound Of The New Album:

"I love to zone out to Sadé and Aaliyah. I'm such an old lady so I love the 80's and 90's India Arie. I'm also in love with love songs. My first album was just jams. My sound has definitely grown. My first album was recorded before Junie was even a thought. Before I found love again. I came from heartbreak and growing up as a woman. Now, I'm 25 going on 26 and I have a family, a husband, and a child. I can talk about things with a different level of maturity now. I'm a better version of myself. I know what I want. I'm more wise; more aware."
