When Teyana Taylor announced her retirement from music, she assured supporters that she was not letting up on her grind and overall road to continued success. Her role in Coming 2 America was since revealed as well as her appointment as Pretty Little Thing’s creative director. Now, at the top of the new year, the Harlem native is celebrating yet another accomplishment.
Over the weekend, the “Wake Up Love” songstress — who won Video Director of the Year at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards — shared that she secured 5 acres of land to build a studio for her The Aunties Inc. production company.
“Wow! I really can’t put it into words the feeling of setting a goal and accomplishing it,” Taylor wrote on Instagram. “Sometimes the goals we set are scary; I’m a firm believer if your goals/ dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough! I stepped out on faith and let God do what God does best. Last night was not only a celebration into 2021 with some of the people I love most, but a full circle moment of when actions and faith align...”
The singer continued, “Although I closed certain chapters in 2020, I’m blessed with the book of opportunity. Entering my dirty 30 with my husband gifting me with my very own movie camera...to bringing in the new year closing on my very own compound with my partner in crime and Co-Founder of The Aunties Inc @coco_gilbert. We, The Aunties are proud to announce, Aunties 360, a 5-acre lot that includes production, dance, recording, prop studios, equipment and 360 green screen rooms for creatives!
Taylor and The Aunties have been the masterminds behind Queen Naija’s “Lie to Me” video featuring Lil Durk and Taylor’s visuals for “Still” and “Issues/Hold On.” Per the actress’ post, the production company “is more than just a sisterhood.”
“We nurture artist like ourselves, artist that visualize the unseen, touch the untouchable, and try what most would consider unthinkable,” Taylor explained. “We represent opportunity, for the best of the best had an opportunity to start.”
