"Hurry" is a song by American singer Teyana Taylor featuring Kanye West, from her second studio album, K.T.S.E. (2018).


West's appearance on it marks the only time that an artist is featured on the album, appropriately so, since he's the executive producer.[1] In West's verse, he plays the role of the Zaddy figure within her life.[2]


For the entirety of the track, a sample from Sly and the Family Stone's 1974 single "Can't Strain My Brain" is used to heavily compose it.[3]

Critical reception[edit]

Pitchfork described the song's 'minimalist guitar noodling often found in the blues' as making: 'the flirty "Hurry" even more playful'.[4] Rolling Stone praised 'the skipping rhythm' of Taylor's singing in "Hurry".[5]

Live performances[edit]

When performing live in San Francisco on September 6, 2018, Taylor brought out West for a surprise performance of the track. After they'd performed together, West took on the role of a fan and recorded the remainder of her performance on his phone.[6]


Shortly after the release of the featuring album, speculation had it that Kim Kardashian and Ray J's tape was sampled within the song.[7] However, it was later confirmed by a representative for GOOD Music that there's no sample of the tape used.[8]
