Teyana Taylor has pretty much taken over these last two quarters of 2016. While we've been familiar with Ms. Taylor for quite some time, her spell binding performance in Kanye West's ‘Fade’ music video launched her into the mainstream and pretty much caught the attention of anyone with access to YouTube. On the most recent cover of PAPER magazine, the mag pretty much claims something we already knew: Teyana is pretty close to having it all. From signing with Pharrell as a teenager then jumping to the GOOD team with Kanye, to becoming a mommy, and slayin the Yeezy runway Ms. Taylor (aka the future Mrs. Shumpert) reveals all...literally. The body that many of us drool over on a regular basis is showcased throughout the entire article in all of her birthday suit glory.
I don’t think anyone is mad about it.
After a swift spotlight snatch at this year's VMAs, Teyana's look ushered in swell of attention for the beauty and an even bigger appreciation for her strength. A majority of the comments that were made after the ‘Fade’ video got released revolved around how strong and powerful she looked. Taylor is opening a new door for young girls and women who find little connection with the VS runway. The strength that is shown in her physicality is just a shell to the iron that lays within this powerhouse of a woman. PAPER delves into that strength and allows you to see why she really can have it all.
Her most recent sneaker drop occurred just a couple weeks back and the success of the Reebok Question Mid has been steady. As she continues to climb I’m sure the kicks she uses to get up the ladder will only bring more heat. Until the next one drops we’ll just have to keep reading about her and trying to catch.
