America’s It Girl has definitely been the one and only, Teyana Taylor. The twenty-six year old, originating from Harlem, New York, is indeed one of the baddest to do it.
She’s appeared in Tyler Perry’s “Madea’s Big Happy Family” as the crazy baby mother named Sabrina and is recognized for her role on VH1’s popular hip hop series “The Breaks.” She even recently performed at VH1’s past two Hip Hop Honors with a trobute to Lil Kim and some classic 90’s hits.
Her first national appearance was on MTV’s My Super Sweet Sixteen in 2012, but her claim to fame recently rocketed in 2016 when she starred in Kanye West’s music video for “Fade.” Taylor’s husband, basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Iman Shumpet let everyone know that he knew his wife was beyond talented even before Kanye’s video went viral, claiming that people had been sleeping on Teyana before her appearance in Fade.

During the video, she served us body through her unique dance moves inside of a gym. People all over could not stop talking about how amazing she looked, and ever since then she has been every woman’s body goals. And let’s talk about how well her body snapped back immediately after having her baby girl, Junie! She definitely needs to let us know who her trainer is!
Musically, Taylor first started off in 2007 signed to Pharrell Williams’ record label, Star Trek Entertainment, and then left to be on Kanye West’s GOOD Music label in 2012. She has written songs for some of your favorite artists like Chris Brown, Usher, and Omarion. Today she’s working on her debut album and is gearing up to premiere her show with her husband next month just in time for Valentine’s Day called “Teyana and Iman.”
This woman literally does everything – from singing to rapping, songwriting, dancing, choreographing, modeling, and acting. This is exactly why she should be everybody’s WCW, because who doesn’t love a multifaceted woman? If you weren’t Googling her before, you definitely are now!
