In celebration of Vibe Magazine 20th Anniversary, the magazine has announced to release a three cover issue to celebrate their 20 strong years.
Today, Vibe released their first cover with edgy crooners Robin Thicke and Janelle Monae pairing up on the front and sipping champagne. They also plan to unveil the next two covers shortly. Check out the pics of Robin and Janelle below:
Here’s what Vibe had to say about being in business for 20 years:
Twenty years ago, Quincy Jones went on a mission. Ever since the legendary producer launched VIBE in 1993 (following a test issue in ’92), Q’s dream publication has been the cornerstone of a culture, cranking out iconic stories and snapshots, from hip-hop to soul to hollywood, fashion and politics.
Now, it’s time to toast and two-step. And who better to jump-start the party than Robin Thicke and Janelle Monáe. While Thicke, in all his falsetto glory, has finally hit a professional climax—landing his first No. 1 album,Blurred Lines, and a chart-topping single (see album title)—Janelle continues her own progressive path toward greatness. So we paired up Mr. Blue-Eyed Soul and the eccentric lady to help VIBE celebrate 20 strong years.
