Flowers, feathers and four of 2018's most prominent musical artists appear on the four separate covers of this week's @nytmag, shot by @ryanmcginleystudios. For our #music issue, we looked at 25 songs that show us where music is going. "McGinley's dreamy portraits of these musicians, along with a sketchy, scribbly, partly hand-drawn design, set a loose, creative tone for the issue," says Jake Silverstein, the magazine's editor in chief. "It's the feeling of being present at the creation, a witness to the birth of new aristic energies, which is what this annual issue is all about." Featuring @iamcardib, @sza, Gucci Mane (@laflare1017) and King Krule(@edgar_the_breathtaker), swipe left to see all four covers. Get the playlist and more with the link in our bio.
"SZA's like Jean Gray," says her manager Terrence Henderson, "so I guess I play the Professor X role. She's definitely a Level 5 mutant. You can't control it. You just gotta try to contain it." @SZA had some anxiety about finishing her debut album, "#Ctrl." The album has since been certified platinum, fueled a sold-out tour and earned her endorsements with Gap and Nike, as well as multiple Grammy nominations. In an era of aggressively cultivated self-confidence, says the writer Lizzy Goodman, the singer has managed to turn her self-doubt into a superpower. Her music is candid, unabashedly emotive and imaginative, and it has won her fans who identify and empathize with her lyrics and music. We feature her song "Drew Barrymore" in our annual #music issue as one of the 25 songs that tell us where music is going. Get the full story and the playlist now with the link in our bio.
