It was impossible not to lose it after seeing Teyana Taylor in Kanye West's video for "Fade."

The singer and actress has one of the most powerful bodies in entertainment, something she attributes to her love of dancing and pushing her body to the limit. 

While discussing her physique on Ebro in the Morning, Taylor talked fitness and revealed that she actually underwent breast reduction surgery after giving birth to her daughter Iman Shumpert Jr., lovingly called Junie. 

"They were so heavy. When I did the Kanye fashion show they were just bigger than me," she said. "And I was just like, 'This is just too much.' I took 'em down. I took 'em all the way down. The thing about it was, it was all excess, just tissue and milk. It was so much stuff and I was just like, 'This gotta go.'"

Taylor told Ebro that her breasts are finally back to where they used to be and that she feels a lot more comfortable, despite the terrible scar the surgery left behind.

"When I look at these scars I don’t like at them like, 'Ugh; because I’m blessed," she added. "I'm not gonna front, I thought that my stomach was going to get ruined. I didn’t know what to expect, which is the reason I didn’t tell the label for a long time. I didn’t tell the label, I didn’t tell them when I was on tour. I was thugging it out because I didn’t want to be treated differently. But it happened and I was blessed because within six days, the six-pack was back. I didn’t really have to get a reduction but that’s what I needed."
