Beauty, sophistication and drive! What are the odds of finding someone of that virtue? We are deprived of unique beauty because we live in a superficial world. When someone can be themselves without competing with the “ideal” beauty standards, it makes you stand out against the rest. It’s very limited in the entertainment business to find someone like this. However, Teyana Taylor has always been in her truth. The world is up in a frenzy about the beauty of the multi-talented star Teyana Taylor. If you don’t know who she is, you have been under a rock! Today, Kontrol will enlighten you on the Kontrol Beauty’s Melanin Monday star.

When she was signed as a recording artist with American musician Pharrell Williams’ Star Trak Entertainment. She is recently, signed to Kanye West‘s GOOD Music label and Def Jam. Not only is she amazing actress and artist she is also a mother. Taylor gave birth to Iman Tayla Shumpert, Jr. on December 16, 2015.
