Teyana Taylor is spotlighted as one of Harper’s BAZAAR’s 2023 Icons.
In the corresponding interview, the “Gonna Love Me” singer revealed what she hopes to achieve in life. “One of my biggest goals right now is to pour energy into these artists like Latto and Summer Walker and really be able to provide them with something that I didn’t have,” Taylor told the publication. “Even though I come from the era of people having artist development, I was left in positions where I had to do everything myself, even at some points where I had to do my own hair and makeup. I’ve always been my own stylist. I choreographed my own stuff, produced my own stuff, did my own lights—that’s all that I know.”
She continued, “That’s my sense of urgency—to be able to be selfless and to continue to balance both being there for myself and for others. I’m so big on balance: how I balance being a mother, a wife, a creative director, an entrepreneur, an artist myself. It’s my world, and I’m just living in it. The sky is not the limit. I’m breaking through the clouds and realizing I can keep going.”
As previously reported by HOT 97, the A Thousand and One star is currently serving as the creative director and co-producer on Lil Baby’s “It’s Only Us Tour,” which kicked off last month in Houston, Texas.
