Who is Teyana Taylor? Meet Kanye West's 'Fade' Video Star!

Teyana Taylor is all the buzz after she was featured in Kanye West‘s new music video for “Fade,” which debuted during the 2016 MTV VMAs on Sunday night.

The 25-year-old singer was featured having a very sweaty workout and taking a post-workout shower with her real-life fiance, NBA player Iman Shumpert.

The couple has a baby girl named Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr., who they call Junie as a nickname. She is featured in the video at the end, when Teyana is seen with a cat-like face and surrounded by sheep.

Here are some quick facts about Teyana:

  • She is a singer who is currently signed to Kanye‘s GOOD Music label. She has previously released an album titled VII in 2014 and an EP called The Cassette Tape 1994 last year.
  • This wasn’t Teyana‘s first time on MTV – she was featured on an episode of My Super Sweet 16 back in 2007.
  • She is not a stranger to music videos as she starred in Jay Z‘s 2007 video for “Blue Magic.”
  • Teyana was the host of America’s Best Dance Crew‘s eighth season
