Teyana Taylor is having a moment.

The 25-year-old singer has been the talk of the town ever since starring in Kanye West‘s “Fade” video, which premiered at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. And on Wednesday, the former America’s Best Dance Crew judge brought her sultry, sweaty video-workout to life on stage.

After walking the runway at West’s Yeezy Season 4 show at New York Fashion Week, Taylor wowed the crowd with a “Fade” live performance at an afterparty for West’s G.O.O.D Music label (on which Taylor has been signed since 2012).

Dressed in black spandex shorts and a matching sports bra, the new mom’s superstar toned body was in full display as she kicked off her shoes and danced around the Highline Ballroom-stage.

Fans captured the performance, quickly posting videos to social media.

Towards the end of her high-energy performance, Taylor was even joined onstage by her fiancé Iman Shumpert.

Like in the video, the 26-year-old NBA star – who popped the question to Taylor in November 2015 – was shirtless. And while the two didn’t recreate the intimate shower session they had in the video, they did share a passionate kiss for the crowd.

And lest anyone forget, while Taylor may shaking her stuff around a gym in West’s video, her own rockin’ body comes with barely any gym time.

“I might have worked out maybe two or three times in my whole life and it probably didn’t last longer than 15 minutes,” she told PEOPLE.

That’s right – those chiseled abs and toned arms and legs? All natural. She doesn’t even stick to a diet. Her only form of exercise is dancing.

“Everybody has their own way, and dancing is for me,” she confessed. “I could literally try to workout in the gym and really be ready to give up in less than five minutes.”

Taylor continued: “But when I dance, I can dance for 12 hours straight. I can rehearse for 12 hours and not be tired. It’s just crazy how the body works.”
