Age, Early Life & Biography of Teyana Taylor

Teyana Taylor’s full name was Teyana Me Shay Jacqueli Taylor. She was the daughter of Nikki Taylor and Tito Smith, born on December 10, 1990, in Harlem, nearby Manhattan, New York City.
She was the only child of her mother but had two half brothers and one sister from her father’s side from his relationships with a different woman. Her biological father was not an active participant in her life. It’s her mother who did the job of both father and mother alone. From her schooling to needs, she fulfilled everything whilst working as a celebrity stylist.
When Teyana was 9 years old, she took up a microphone and performed fearlessly in front of a hundred people. This marked the first gleam of her musical talent. Henceforth, her mother put all her effort into teaching Teyana music.
Once during an interview, Teyana shared that music was ingrained in her life since childhood by her mother. She used to play all hit songs from the 1970s, 80s, and 90s. Instead of going and playing with other kids, she would sit near the window sill and listen to the fine tunes of music eagerly and sing them all along.
At a delicate age, she started showcasing her talents in several competitions but never won most of them but took it as an opportunity to work hard and polish her talents. Her inspirations were Lauryn Hill, Janet Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson.
