Megan Thee Stallion joins the likes of Kendall Jenner, Justin Bieber, and, of course, Mark Wahlberg as the latest face of Calvin Klein. The famed fashion brand tapped the rapper for its latest campaign, Blank Canvas, which features the new Spring 2021 collection.

The new releases incorporate archival and classic denim pieces, T-shirts, and, of course, plenty of underwear with the brand's signature logo waistband. The collection also includes gender-neutral pieces, Complex adds, including trucker jackets and ribbed cotton tanks.

Megan may be stealing the spotlight in the Mario Sorrenti-lensed shots, but the new ads also feature actor and musician Anthony Ramos from Hamilton and the upcoming In the Heights, futurist and activist Janaya Future Khan, Euphoria actor Jacob Elordi, musician Koffee, skate collective Queer Skate LA, singer and songwriter Rina Sawayama, musician and skateboarder Sage Elsesser, and dancer Vinson Fraley.

The opportunity is a longtime dream for Megan, who told Vogue that she's wanted to model for the brand since the '90s.

"I really liked that swag in the early '90s, when I would see the old campaigns for the jeans or the Calvin Klein underwear and bras," she said. "When I grew up, I was like, 'one day, I want to [model for Calvin Klein] — I don't know how I'm gonna do it, but I want to do it.'"

The campaign comes on the heels of Megan's "Southside Forever Freestyle" video and her collab with Ariana Grande and Doja Cat, a remix of "34+35." Her latest album, Good News, has already been certified gold.
