Playboy has named multi-platinum rapper, Cardi B, as its first-ever Creative Director In Residence, as well as founding creative director of an upcoming platform, Centerfold.
Cardi B in a statement, It is a dream come true to officially join the Playboy family. I can’t believe this is real. For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt connected to Playboy. It’s truly the original platform for uncensored creativity and I’m inspired by its incredible legacy of fighting for personal freedoms. I have so many ideas already — I can’t wait!
She continued, I’m also excited to launch our creator-led platform, Centerfold. Creators today deserve to express themselves freely and unfiltered. They deserve to feel safe in their creativity and sexuality. And they deserve to own their future. This is what Centerfold is all about. For all those creators out there doing bold, revolutionary, truly culture-shifting things, come join me.
Earlier this week, Cardi became the first female rapper to receive two RIAA diamond singles. Both Cardi’s 2018 collaboration with Maroon 5, “Girls Like You,” and her breakout hit “Bodak Yellow” have reached an impressive milestone.
