EDITION Launches the Summer Issue With Cover Star Singer Brittney Spencer Logo

Roc Nation and Modern Luxury’s unique multimedia destination launches its summer volume with iconic visionaries across various creative mediums, from actress Amandla Stenberg to Afrobeats singer Ayra Starr.

NEW YORK — On July 1, 2024, EDITION by Modern Luxury, the first multiplatform portal to champion diverse talent in the realm of luxury, announced the unveiling of its annual summer issue with Brittney Spencer as the cover star. The singer-songwriter reflects on tapping into her vulnerability and the growing diversity within country music.

“I hope that things continue to progress to the point where we honestly retire the conversation. That’s the goal—not having to talk about diversity because it’s such a norm,” Spencer explains.

The summer issue (whose theme is “Music”) celebrates the legends who have laid the foundation for everything we’ve come to love about music and new-age creators who are helping to reshape the ever-evolving industry.

“The artists, producers and DJs we’ve highlighted in this issue are all innovators of their respective generations and genres, dismantling all archaic rules when it comes to gender, race and genre fusion,” says EDITION Editor-in-Chief Bianca Gracie. “As you flip through this issue, I hope the stories inspire you to get out of your own musical comfort zone.”

EDITION—which was formed in partnership with Roc Nation and Modern Luxury Media in 2021—continues to call upon renowned creative talents from an array of fields. Within EDITION: The Music Issue, Afropop’s princess Ayra Starr discusses her new album and the genre’s international explosion, actors Amandla Stenberg and Manny Jacinto step into the Star Wars universe with Disney+’s The Acolyte, DJ Austin Millz and R&B singer Chxrry22 share their tour style inspiration, and ONE MusicFest founder Jason “J” Carter shares vital music business tips.

In the spirit of the 2024 Paris Olympics, EDITION also features Ralph Lauren’s Team USA collection and an interview with Olympic sprinter Gabby Thomas, who exudes confidence in Dior and OMEGA.
