So, it makes perfect sense that Maxim has named the star the “Sexiest Woman Alive.”

What makes this honor so special is that Teyana is the first Black woman to be given this title. And she shared her disbelief and appreciation with fans on Instagram.

"Somebody pinch me!!!! Maxim Hot 100 to be named the ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ by literally living in the skin I’m in. WOW! Stepping back in front of the lens has been a journey of self-reflection and self-confidence," she captioned the post.

She continued, “As an entrepreneur, wife, a busy mother of two, and working behind the lens in my director bag, I tend to hide behind my sweats and vintage tees. So, as you can see, I don’t have much time to be and feel sexy.”

Now that Teyana has been given this honor, hopefully, we’ll see more Black women be celebrated in the future.
