Megan Thee Stallion has been announced as one of three cover stars on the 2021 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. “REAL SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SWIMSUIT EDITION COVER MODEL S***!!!” Meg wrote on Instagram celebrating her achievement.

Megan made history by becoming the first rapper and only the second musical artist to grace the cover of the magazine, following Beyoncé in 2007.

“I want to thank all the strong women in my life who inspired me to love my body and live my best hot girl life,” Megan added in her IG post. “It means the world to me to be on this cover DREAM COME TRUE!!”

Megan wears a nude bikini from Fashion Nova along with a Lizzie Fortunato bracelet on the cover. You can check out a full gallery of her photos over at Sports Illustrated Swimsuit.

Joining Megan as one of the three SI Swim cover stars is tennis superstar Naomi Osaka and SI Swim’s first transgender model of color Leyna Bloom.

"If there's one thing that our cover models have in common, it's that they don't have one thing in common,” Sports Illustrated Swimsuit editor-in-chief
