EDITION Launches the Summer Issue with Cover Star Singer Lous and the Yakuza

Roc Nation and Modern Luxury’s unique multimedia destination launches its summer volume with iconic visionaries who have a shared love for music, including legendary R&B trio SWV, singer Victoria Monét, and Miami Marlins baseball star Jazz Chisolm

NEW YORK, NY — Today, EDITION by Modern Luxury, the first multi-platform portal to champion diverse talent in the realm of luxury, announced the unveiling of its annual summer issue (and inaugural music issue) with musician and model Lous and the Yakuza as the cover star. The artist courageously challenges the music and fashion industries with her thought-provoking songs and as a Louis Vuitton and YSL Beauté brand ambassador.

“[I do this] because of the powerful message of having a Black, dark-skinned woman on a billboard. If I can contribute to putting people who look like me out there, I feel like I’ve done something,” Lous and the Yakuza says.

The Summer Issue centers on musicians and music aficionados alike, who all use the power of sound to motivate their daily lives.

“The overwhelming passion birthed through melodies, lyrics and synths is why I’m so excited to present our inaugural Music Issue theme,” says editor-in-chief of EDITION Bianca Gracie. “Our cover girl and Louis Vuitton ambassador Lous and the Yakuza is enticing an even bigger audience with her summer tour, while artists like Victoria Monét continue to take risks and display vulnerability with their new albums.”

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 Summer Music Issue, readers will get a peek inside the makings of this summer’s horror-comedy The Blackening, gain insight into rapper Jadakiss’ new venture into the coffee business, be inspired by Jamaican music legend Buju Banton’s life lessons as part of his 50th birthday celebration, learn about RAYE’s tour essentials and see how Miami Marlins’ second baseman/center fielder Jazz Chisolm is modernizing baseball.
