Teyana Taylor is probably the only person on the planet who is shocked by her new role.
The star of E!’s new reality series We Got Love Teyana & Iman first turned heads choreographing and dancing in Kanye West‘s iconic hit “Fade” music video, but the multi-hyphenate talent has been working behind the scenes for over a decade in the music industry. Teyana and NBA player husband Iman Shumpert are parents to two daughters, and We Got Love is expected to “give an unfiltered behind-the-scenes look at their lives juggling music, fashion, business and family” according to a press release.
As for her new title as Maxim‘s Sexiest Woman Alive for the annual Hot 100 list, Teyana shared an epic reaction on Instagram on Monday, June 7.
“Somebody pinch me!!!!” the Coming 2 America star captioned. “WOW….Stepping back in front of the lens has been a journey of self-reflection and self-confidence. Living up to name and title of this shoot wholeheartedly made me nervous. As a entrepreneur, wife, a busy mother of two & working behind the lens in my director bag I tend to hide behind my sweats & vintage tees, My ‘Spike Tey’ glasses, and whatever hair style I’ve mustarded up that day…So I as you can see I don’t have much time to be and feel sexy.”
