Teyana Taylor just keeps winning.
Yes, she’s seven years deep in the game but she may have to hit up Drake because she’s owned Summer Sixteen. First, back in June, she killed it at the VH1 Hip Hop Honors with her tribute to Lil Kim. Then, on Sunday, she became a household name when she appeared in Kanye West’s new video, “Fade,” showing of her superior dance moves and body.
Now, the singer is set to further her winning streak—she’s just been aded to the cast of VH1’s new hip-hop themed show, The Breaks. The series is inspired by Dan Charnas’ bestselling book, The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip Hop, and stars Tristan “Mack” Wilds. Taylor will have a recurring role as a rapper discovered by Nikki (Afton Williamson) who is one of the first artists signed to the label that Barry Fouray (Wood Harris) is launching.Taylor will also appear on another VH1 show, the Ice Cube-produced Hip Hop Squares.
Earlier this year, she released VII, which featured the sultry single, “Touch Me (Interlude),” which again, showcased her amazing post-baby bod. For now though, Taylor seems to be riding high on all of the recent attention she’s been getting.
Bottom line—she’s definitely winning.
