"This is a moment where I feel like I'm reintroducing myself to the world. It's called 'Never Met a Me' because it's coming from a place of confidence, fully standing in who I am now, and understanding what I want to give to the world," she explained.

Working with Rozay was a dream come true for the singer-songwriter. "Ross did his thing and just having his co-sign felt amazing. I'm so excited for everyone to hear it," she said. "He brought a great vibe to the set. He's a huge jokester, so it was just good vibes. Having his co-sign truly means a lot to me because he didn't have to do what he did," she added.

The Essence of "Never Met a Me"

The album is designed to make listeners feel good. She describes it as "feel-good music" that resonates with "the girls, the lovers, and the people who still feel in our generation." She aims to bring warmth and love back into a world that often feels cold. "I feel like it's cold out here, but I'm a lover girl. That's what my project's truly going to reflect," she said.

When asked about her dream collaborations, Teenear didn't hesitate. "If I go big, I have to say Beyoncé, but I feel like I'll be on her tour. Could you imagine? Oh my God," she exclaimed. She also expressed her admiration for artists like SZA, Tyla, Summer Walker, and H.E.R., hoping to collaborate with them in the future. "I love the females right now. We're definitely taking over and I'm watching them. Hopefully, one day we all get to collab," she added.

The State of R&B

Addressing the ongoing conversation about the plummeting state of R&B, Teenear emphasized how listeners are eager for more substance in their soundwaves. "People are paying more attention to it again. People are wanting to enjoy real music again, and I feel like we're going in the right direction," she noted. In fact, with her finger on the pulse, Teenear is ready to infuse the genre with fresh energy and authenticity, proving that the heart and soul of pop/R&B are far from fading. "When people listen to my songs, I'm praying and hoping that they connect to it because that's what music is about. It's about being able to connect with other people through similar experiences," she said.

A Message of Love

At the heart of Never Met A Me is a message of love and resilience. Teenear believes in the enduring power of love, even in a world that often seems cynical. "The overall message I feel like is love is still here. I feel like we're in an era where people want to act like they don't love love anymore. It's F boys, F this. And it's like, why? We still love love," she stated.
