image1Teyana Taylor came to the DMV and delivered a very sassy performance last week. DCLA Productions and WPGC 95.5 brought the R&B songstress to the Fillmore Silver Spring where she performed popular tracks from her latest album, VII.

The former My Super Sweet Sixteen star served lots of sexy. From the beginning to the end, Teyana kept the crowd on their toes with her flawless vocals and captivating choreography.

Teyana paid homage to musical icon Janet Jackson thanks to her rendition of the classic song, “I Get Lonely” to her menswear inspired costume. It got very hot in the place when Teyana chose a few lucky audience members to receive lap dances as she sang her song, “Maybe.” She also brought emotion as she sang the heartfelt tune, “Sorry.”

The display of her fun personality and stage presence made it impossible not to love her. Especially, with her many hair flips!

Teyana ended the show with “In the Air,” followed by going into the crowd to take photos and give hugs to her fans.

Preceding Teyana’s set, the crowd was able to enjoy some outstanding opening acts. The night began with the female duo, The Amours, who were the winners of a WPGC contest for local talent called, “DMV Spolight.” The ladies gave their own neo-soul styled versions of popular 90s R&B girl group songs such as TLC‘s “No Scrubs” and SWV‘s “I’m So Into You.” They also performed “No Flex Zone” and “Tuesday” and turned them into their own “R&B Medleys,” as they called them. The vibrant trio, Main Girl gave a very energetic performance, performing original songs, while PatriceLive performed singles from her album, Ghosts of Boyfriends Past. The final opening act, Brittney T, brought some hip-hop to the place by performing some tracks from her mix tape, Jack Rabbit Vol 1. The colorful female rapper definitely won the crowd over with her song, “Frenemies.”

The level of energy for the night was at an all time high thanks to all of the the talented performers.
