In December 2020, Teyana announced her retirement from music. Meanwhile, her acting career continues to thrive. She has been earning critical acclaim for her starring role in A Thousand and One and is gearing up to play Dionne Warwick in a biopic.
Over the weekend, she made a surprise appearance on stage during Usher’s Las Vegas residency while he performed “Bad Girl.”
