Megan Thee Stallion will be one of the cover girls for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue this year.
A source says, “She’s the biggest star [right now], so it’s a no-brainer..."
While it’s unusual for musicians to grace the cover rather than models, she wouldn’t be the first. Beyoncé has also appeared on the front of the famed issue.
The magazine has been teasing its inside-the-book lineup all year. It will make some history by featuring models like its first transgender model of color, Leyna Bloom, and Lewis Freese, the brand’s first male candidate to become a finalist in the SI Swim Search, a section where amateur models can try and make it into the issue. COVID nurse Maggie Rawlins is also one of the bikini models.
Reps for Megan would not confirm or deny the rapper’s participation in the issue, but an industry source told us we should expect to see even more of her in the coming months.
“She’s working on a new album. It makes sense that she would get a huge cover like that."
