Teyana M.J. Taylor (born December 10, 1990) is an American socialite,
singer, rapper, choreographer, dancer and actress from Harlem, New
York. She is signed to both Star Trak Entertainment and GOOD Music
and is most notable for her debut single, "Google Me".
Teyana Taylor's first brush with fame came about when she helped
choreograph the music video of pop music artist Beyoncé's
hit Ring the Alarm. After the success, she was then introduced to
the national public on MTV's "My Super Sweet 16" in 2007.
The niece of Pharrell Williams, she signed to Star Trak Entertainment
in 2007. She appeared on Jay-Z's "Blue Magic" music video
in October 2007 and her debut single, "Google Me," was
released by Star Trak in February 2008. Taylor's planned debut album
was called From a Planet Called Harlem. From her website:
"With production from sonic architects like Jazze Pha, Pharrell,
Mad Scientist, Frost, Shondre and Hit Boy, Teyana's first solo offering
has the rumblings of a party-pumping earthquake. The mix of throwback
break beats, futuristic boom bap, and melodic renderings is the perfect
backdrop for the starlet's musical mayhem."
She has not announced a release date.
She is a member of a band called U.G.L.Y. along with band mates
Mijo, Braxton and Ethan. A snippet of U.G.L.Y.'s single "Wasted" was
released early 2010. No further releases from the band have since

of the 2007 hit film Stomp the Yard, titled Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming,
