Skepta’s latest magazine cover is leaving a lot of people envious after the U.K. rapper got extremely close with supermodel Naomi Campbell.
Gracing the cover of the British GQ, a shirtless Skepta holds a topless Campbell close to his body as he leans in to kiss her neck. While the issue is not out yet, a preview for the upcoming story details how the two met and how their relationship has grown. “A series of Instagram images with love heart emojis chronicle the friendship that blossomed, which, this year, took a professional turn,” the preview reads.
The cover quickly became a hot topic on Twitter, with many people taken aback by the photo. “Well that’s warming things up a bit this morning. What a cover,” wrote one person. “I need to read a romance book about this cover! Like, STAT!!” another person tweeted.
In related news, the Vicious rapper was recently featured in a new Nike commercial along with Giggs and Big Shaq. The commercial for Nike’s “Nothing Beats a Londoner” campaign features fragments of Skepta’s “Shutdown” during the ad.
In October, Skepta dropped his Vicious EP and got some help from a few rappers from the states. The six-track project includes guest appearances from Lil B, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Nast.
The Skepta and Naomi Campbell issue of GQ will be available on March 8.
