And now SZA, Megan Thee Stallion, and Normani are having that stardom catapulted into the eyes of music lovers everywhere, as they grace the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine. The trio are the featured covergirls for the acclaimed magazine's second annual Women Shaping the Future issue out March 3. Hell Bent For Leather: (L-R) SZA, Megan Thee Stallion, and Normani assert their musical dominance in leather and latex for the cover of Rolling Stone's second annual Women Shaping the Future issue out March 3 Megan Thee Stallion, grasping onto her enviable chest, slipped her signature curves into a structured, BDSM-inspired bodysuit that featured an array of criss-cross straps and a silver buckle. Paving her way: SZA, 29, can be heard on a number of hgh-profile collaborations, as well as on her critically acclaimed solo record Ctrl that hit shelves in 2018; SZA pictured at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar party on February 9 Shortly after the cover's reveal on Wednesday afternoon, Normani and Megan took to their Instagram pages to reshare Rolling Stone's original post to their combined follower count of 14million. SZA, native to New Jersey, first entered into the music scene in 2014 with her label debut Z.
The ep described as 'trippy' opened the doors for the singer, leading her to lend her voice to a plethora of high-profile musical collaborations. Hot Girl All Year Long: Megan Thee Stallion became a household name in 2019 after the release of her pervasively catchy Summer anthem Hot Girl Summer: Megan was pictured at New York Fashion Week on February 11 SZA has been featured on chart topping tracks with the likes of Rihanna, Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, Maroon 5 and Kendrick Lamar since the early days of her career. With the release of her critically-acclaimed album Ctrl in 2018, the 29-year-old vocalist and songwriter made her way into the music libraries of music aficionados across the globe. In 2019, the singer was back on the charts for her feature with Kendrick Lamar All The Stars that joined the track list for the The Black Panther soundtrack. Commanding presence: Megan Thee Stallion performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on February 13 Megan Thee Stallion stole the hottest months of the year for herself when she released the club - and beach - banger Hot Girl Summer in 2019.

March is Women's History Month and as usual, Rolling Stone is using the opportunity to honor some of the hottest emerging voices in music with its cover for the month. This year, they're handing the spotlight to three women who have started made their mark in 2019 and plan to do so again in 2020: Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion, former Fifth Harmony singer Normani, and Top Dawg Entertainment R&B artist SZA. Megan Thee Stallion, of course, may have had the biggest rookie year of the three. Since dropping her Tina Snow project at the end of 2018, she has become a near household name as her "Hot Girl Summer" catchphrase took over the internet and became a top ten hit, her Fever followup project charted and produced hit after hit, and she finally landed on some of the year's biggest film soundtracks, including Birds Of Prey, where she shares a billing with Normani. Normani, meanwhile, had her own stellar breakout in 2019 after dropping her summertime single "Motivation" and its nostalgic video, which went instantly viral and began building her buzz. That buzz reached a crescendo with "Diamonds" from the Birds Of Prey soundtrack and like Megan, Normani plans to capitalize with a debut album later this year. Then there's SZA, who's been relatively quiet since dropping her own game-changing debut CTRL — gotta respect the commitment to the bit there — but has been in Hawaii recording its followup, which has an expected due date sometime this year as well, along with a song with Megan.
