Ebony magazine pays tribute to Beyonce, Jay Z, Rihanna and Kanye West in their collectors’ edition, four-cover Black Music Month special issue. Each superstar gets their own special cover and title. Bey is crowned ‘The Diva’, while Hov is referred to as ‘The Mogul’. Meanwhile, Rih is ‘The Rebel’ and Ye is ‘The Poet’. All very appropriate choices.
“It was an honor to write the four cover stories for EBONY magazine’s Black Music Month special collector’s edition,” said music writer Kevin Powell. “Rarely do you see today’s unstoppable stars like Beyonce, Rihanna, Kanye West and Jay Z packaged with legends like Tina Turner, Donna Summer or Tupac Shakur, but we did it because when it comes to Black music, it is important to note the deep connection between the musicians of yesterday and today.” See all four covers after the jump.
