Teyana Taylor Announces She’s Expecting in the “Wake Up Love” Video

In the video, Teyana Taylor quietly announces she and Iman Shumpert are expecting another daughter.

Fresh off the release of “Made It” and “Bare Wit Me,” Teyana Taylor is back. On Friday, she dropped the video for her latest single “Wake Up Love.” The track is another collaboration between Taylor and husband Iman Shumpert. Stream the video above.

Taylor continues her directorial efforts, shooting the video along with Rafael Gutierrez serving as director of photography.

The video features the happy couple and daughter Junie. The video’s closing moments serve as an informal announcement. The happy family jumps into bed. Junie excitedly pushes Iman’s hand away from Teyana, revealing Teyana’s baby bump. Taylor recently broke the news that the couple are expecting another daughter.

“We’re ready, and we’re very excited,” Taylor said in an interview with PEOPLE Magazine. “Iman is super excited, Junie is ecstatic — I’m talking super ecstatic. Everybody is just excited. I can’t wait. I’ve got three more months left until we meet our little princess.”

Stay tuned for further details on THE ALBUM. In recent weeks, Taylor’s dropped two videos from the release, her third album. “Made It” celebrates graduates from the Class of 2020, while “Bare Wit Me” pairs up Taylor’s choreography and a 1930s noir murder mystery.

Previously, Taylor dropped “We Got Love” featuring Ms. Lauryn Hill. The track followed up “How You Want it?” with King Combs and “Morning” featuring Kehlani. Taylor also directed the videos for each single.

“Wake Up Love” is available for streaming on digital streaming platforms.
