With the start of each new month comes new magazine covers. Centric and SoulSessions favorite—Usher–landed two covers. Impressive right?
Usher covered VIBE with an aviation theme. Could it be an homage to his career taking flight again after (Here I Stand anyone?) Or maybe its a nod to his personal life? Usher is no stranger to having his life imitate his art (his relationship with Chili was detailed in Confessions) and his latest album Raymond v Raymond is no different. In this cover story, Ursh talks Tameka, career rebounds and his support of his R&B successors.
From rough and rugged to dashing and dapper, Usher joined forces with top urban stars–Mary J. Blige, Samuel L. Jackson, Nia Long and Soul Train Awards 2010 co-host Taraji P. Henson—to celebrate Ebony’s 65th Anniversary. This issue will include a nod to past covers with Duke Eillington, Diana Ross, Richard Roundtree and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. reimaged with modern day celebrities like Regina King, Yolanda Adams and John Legend. —Danielle Young
