Who is Maxim’s Sexiest Woman Teyana Taylor?
The multi-talented Taylor, who is 30, received the honor from Maxim in June of 2021.
“I’ve followed Maxim for a long time and I’ve always felt like I should be on the cover,” she told the magazine.
“So to actually get the call saying they want me on the cover really meant a lot. I was like, what? They want me on the cover? OK!”

A singer and songwriter, Taylor is known for such songs as Get Off, which she performed in Coming 2 America.
The Eddie Murphy sequel was a huge hit at the box office, earning nearly $300million.
“It was like a dream come true, especially to be a part of something so iconic and so legendary, everything’s so surreal,” Teyana told Maxim.
“He’s from New York, so it was a lot of New York energy. So we could talk our s**t, and I love that.”

What is her upcoming reality show?
Taylor and her husband are set to star in E!’s We Got Love Teyana & Iman, which will debut later in 2021.
The singer and Shumpert have been married since 2016 and share two children – Iman Jr and Rue.
E! calls the show a “refreshingly authentic and completely unfiltered new docu-series.”
“I can’t just get up and go to Target,” Taylor tells Maxim.
“I have to get up and know that there’s three cameras and a whole production team, and they got to go and get it approved and all that other stuff that comes with it.”
Shumpert spoke about the couple’s relationship in 2017.
“We’ve faced some tough times, overcome some tough stretches,” he told xonecole.
