A Woman We Love: Teyana Taylor
Teyana Taylor exploded into the public consciousness with her jaw-dropping turn in the video for Kanye West’s song ‘Fade’.
The multi-talented dancer, singer and songwriter has worked with and written records for major artists including Usher, Chris Brown and Kanye as well as appeared on runways during Fashion Week — and all that before her 25th birthday. In 2018, her long-awaited solo album is released, produced by no other than Yeezy, himself.
So 2017 was a big year for you. What can we expect from you next?
Finally the release of my debut album! It is being produced by Kanye West. I’ve heard most of the beats and it’s almost done. We are looking to drop it early in 2018, and I cannot wait!
Is there anyone you’d like to thank for this award?
I’d like to shout out to Dubai and my fans in the GCC. It’s my first time here and it has been pretty amazing to me. I’d also like to thank my friends and my family, my husband and my baby girl.
Who is the coolest person you have in your phone book?
Well, Kanye, but the coolest person is my little baby Junni, she is the number one coolest person in the whole world. My bad, Yeezy, but she’s the coolest.
