I first saw Teyana Taylor on My Super Sweet 16 and remember Pharell saying that she was going to be one of his artist on Star Trak. I have heard a single or 2 of her’s on the radio but to me she is most known for her birthday special on MTV. Her is what the internet has to say about her.
“Her first brush with fame came about when she helped choreograph the music video of Beyoncé‘s hit “Ring the Alarm“. After the success, she was then introduced to the national public on MTV‘s My Super Sweet 16 in 2007. Producer Pharrell Williams signed Taylor to Star Trak Entertainment in 2007. She appeared in Jay-Z‘s “Blue Magic” music video in October 2007 and her debut single, “Google Me”, was released by Star Trak in February 2008. As well as this, she features on the track “Teach Me How To Dougie” by Cali Swag District, which reached #91 in the US Top 100 Billboard, back in June 2010. Taylor’s planned debut album was called From a Planet Called Harlem. From her website:
She has not announced a release date. She is a member of a band called U.G.L.Y. along with band mates Mijo, Braxton and Ethan. A snippet of U.G.L.Y.’s single “Wasted” was released early 2010. No further releases from the band have since been mentioned. Taylor has also ventured into acting. She has appeared in the sequel of the 2007 hit film Stomp the Yard, titled Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming, which was released August 2010.She made an appearance on the debut episode of House of Glam on Oxygen. She also appeared in a new movie by Tyler Perry, Madea’s Big Happy Family, released on April 22, 2011. She was also featured on a song by Kanye West, “Christmas in Harlem”, released through Mr. West’s G.O.O.D. Friday program.”
I’m looking forward to seeing more things from Teyana. I love her big hair and think she has a beautiful unique look. Check her out at her official site. www.teyanatayloronline.com
