Biography

Teyana M.J. Taylor (born December 10, 1990) is an American socialite, singer, rapper, choreographer, dancer and actress from Harlem, New York. She was signed to Star Trak Entertainment/Interscope Records and released her debut single, “Google Me” in 2007. In 2011, she appeared in Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family opposite rapper/actor Bow Wow. Now a free agent, Teyana has just released a mixtape: “The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor,” that is available as a free download on her website: www.gottaloveteyana.tumblr.com. It features her newest single, “DUI,” featuring Fabolous and Jadakiss.

Teyana Taylor’s 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.

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.

    Her album is actually really good. I'm glad that I gave it the time it deserves.

    Ok Teyana....a whole lot of Brandy on this new album like KileyJojoStacie noted...but you have the vocals so you get a pass. This is a pretty good cd though. I'm already on my 4th listen through the album and Request is on repeat. Love the Teena Marie Portuguese Love homage you paid on one of the tracks too. You definitely silenced Tinashe for me; I thought I enjoyed her cd but yours is a bit better. Good work.

    I did not expect anything from this album. I never even expected it to come out. But.. I must say I enjoy listening to it. The production and her voice are on point. There's nothing extra, everything is so balanced. Best words to describe this album is: EASY ON EARS.

    album is okay, has a few potential growers. Doesn't Request sound like Brandy's How I Feel?
