And in typical Beyoncé fashion, her cover will be one for the books: The photographer, 21-year-old Kennedi Carter, becomes the youngest cover photographer in British Vogue's 104-year history, capturing Bey sporting her latest Ivy Park x Adidas collection as well as a Mugler elastic-nylon mesh bodysuit and an Alexander McQueen evening jacket.
In the interview, conducted by editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, the 39-year-old superstar reveals how the events of 2020 "absolutely changed" her.
"It would be difficult to experience life in a pandemic and the current social unrest and not be changed. I have learnt that my voice is clearer when I am still," she says. "I truly cherish this time with my family, and my new goal is to slow down and shed stressful things from my life. I came into the music industry at 15 years old and grew up with the world watching, and I have put out projects nonstop."
She recalled her "back to back" creative projects over the last four years, starting with her 2016 album Lemonade and ending with her 2020 Disney+ visual album Black Is King.
