Teyana Taylor received a special surprise on her farewell concert tour this week from her good friend and idol Janet Jackson.

Janet attended Teyana’s concert at the O2 Academy in London, and the room was filled with love as the “Rhythm Nation” singer greeted her backstage.

“Def one of the greatest surprises of my life,” Teyana commented on Instagram as she posted several photos with Jackson, as well as shots from the concert.

“Thank you for ur loving words always…. No matter how close our bond continues to grow, I will always still be one of ya biggest fans! Thank you for always being so genuine & being an inspiration to us all!” the singer/actress/choreographer continued. “You are the reason I give 134667643% when I hit that stage. You are the blueprint. I love you Queen.”

When Taylor announced she was retiring from the stage in December 2020, Janet shared some public words of support.

“You have an undeniable gift from God,” Janet wrote on Instagram, adding that she would “always” be here for Teyana.
