Teyana Taylor in the new Kanye West "Fade" music video is all the body goals we need for life, but the singer and dancer is so much more than just the star of this new video.

She's a new mom and a soon-to-be wife to basketball star Iman Shumpert.

Here are five things you should know about the Harlem native. 

1. She was featured on MTV's My Super Sweet Sixteen

Back in 2007, a 16-year-old Teyana threw a bash no one would forget for her birthday. With a 1980’s old school hip hop themed Skateboard party to reflect her personality, her night was full of color, dope music and birthday present that just so happened to be a Range Rover. Not too bad.  

2. Teyana was once signed to Pharrell Williams' record label. 

Before she was the first lady of Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music, Teyana was signed to Pharrell's Star Trak Entertainment. Her debut single, "Google Me" was released in 2008. 

3. Her Fiancé Iman Shumpert is a 2016 NBA Champs Cleveland Cavaliers team member

Iman popped the question at he and Teyana's baby shower in November. With a ruby ring shaped like a rose, the basketball star got down on one knee to ask for Teyana's hand in marriage. The singer was by her beau's side in June when he and teammates LeBron James and Kyrie Irving brought Cleveland their first national championship in franchise history.

4. She's a mom to baby girl Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. 

Baby Junie is a superstar just like her mama and dad! Born in Deecember, Baby Junie was delivered in Iman and Teyana's bathroom after arriving earlier than expected. The 9 month-old even has her own head wrap line coming soon.

5. "Fame" isn't the first time she's given us total body goals.

Channeling a total J.Lo "Flashdance" moment, this isn't the first time Teyana has slayed when it comes to choreo. At the 2016 VH1 Hip-Hop Honors, Ms. Taylor became Lil Kim to honor the Queen Bee with an epic perfomance.
