According to an Instagram post by Hajjaj, the Larache-born artist was contacted by the publication last year to shoot the cover. “It felt like a dream until today. I am honored and humbled,” he wrote. “Thanks to Vogue and Billie for the love and support. I hope this opens more doors for artists around the world,” he concluded.
In this cover, the “Bad guy” singer sports a Gucci jacket and necklace as she poses against the photographer’s signature colorful and patterned backdrop. In addition to the cover, Hajjaj was also tasked with shooting a series of photographs of the singer, which feature inside the print edition.
This isn’t the first time that the multidisciplinary artist collborates with American magazines. In 2017, Hassan Hajjaj was also behind US rapper Cardi B’s first cover for New York magazine’s November 13 issue.
