Teyana Taylor, whose devotion to community and social activism has been a constant factor throughout her career at G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam Recordings, celebrates the commencement-deprived Class of 2020 in the inspira-tional video for her new track “Made It,” prominently featuring many of those remarkable graduates.
“Made It” is a very personal journey for Teyana, who never had a formal high school graduation herself. She was already signed to a recording contract during those years, finished up through home schooling, and ultimately received her high school diploma inside of a Starbucks. When Teyana’s production company The Aunties put out a note on social media a few weeks ago seeking 2020 graduates to participate in the “Made It” production, the response was overwhelming. Teyana is passionate about celebrating these grads who won’t have the opportunity to attend formal commencements this year.
