Playboy / Ben Watts

Teyana Taylor has been chosen to grace the cover of Playboy‘s September/October 2018 issue. Taylor was captured by photographer Ben Watts in a series of looks, of which you can preview above.

In addition to the shoot, the 27-year-old musician/actress/dancer sat down with the publication to discuss working with Kanye West, her recent K.T.S.E. album, being a leader, and more.

“That’s the beauty of working with someone like Kanye: He gets how creative people work,” Taylor says. “I would never let someone tell me, ‘This is what you’re going to sing today.’ That’s the Karl Lagerfeld in me. I got to grab the camera myself, because you don’t see what I see, baby. I need you to be able to feel me. I need you to be able to touch me.”
