The mother of two is about to take her career to new heights with her upcoming film A Thousand and One, which opens Friday.
The film is about Inez, a young woman who has just been released from prison and seeks to reestablish a relationship with her son Terry and takes him out of the foster home without permission from the authorities.
Talking with CNN Commenting on her new film on Tuesday, Teyana said: ‘The synopsis of what the story represented was enough for me. And of course, you know, Inez is a Harlem girl and I am a Harlem girl.
“What this role meant to me and the women in my life and women all over the world, it was something I wanted to take on,” she said.
The film won the grand jury prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
The Masked Singer champion commented on how her performance has already sparked early talk of being an Oscar contender for her performance.
“To go from sitting at home watching the Oscars to having Oscar-type conversations, of course, is an honor. I would appreciate it even with just one nomination. That’s big,’ she said.
When she shot the movie, Teyana was three months pregnant with her daughter Rue Rose, who is now two years old.
Taylor commented on balancing work and her parenting duties saying, “Keeping Inez and all that trauma on set and then coming home and flipping the switch and being a supermom was definitely a challenge.”
“I was dealing with postpartum and also dealing with the death of a lot of my friends and some family members while filming in Harlem,” she revealed.
Oscar rumours: Taylor is starring in the upcoming film A Thousand and One, which opens Friday and is already getting early talk about being an Oscar nominee for her performance.

Premiere: She took her husband Iman Shumpert and their children to the Sundance Film Festival for the premiere of their new movie in January.
‘Having to go to funerals during my lunch break was a lot, you know? But I was able to put all of that emotion and all of my grief into Inez, as she was dealing with a lot of things and a lot of loss in her life.’
Teyana also shares seven-year-old daughter Iman ‘Junie’ Jr. with her husband, basketball player Iman Shumpert.
The couple, who have been married since 2016, have documented their family life on the reality shows Teyana & Iman and on E!’s We Got Love Teyana & Iman.
