VIBE Summer 2013 Cover : Robin Thicke and Janelle Monae

ILIKEITALOTDOTCOM

Twenty years ago, Quincy Jones went on a mission. Ever since the legendary producer launched VIBE in 1993 (following a test issue in ’92), Q’s dream publication has been the cornerstone of a culture, cranking out iconic stories and snapshots, from hip-hop to soul to hollywood, fashion and politics. Now, it’s time to toast and two-step.

And who better to jump-start the party than Robin Thicke and Janelle Monáe. While Thicke, in all his falsetto glory, has finally hit a professional climax — landing his first No. 1 album, ‘Blurred Lines,’ and a chart-topping single (see album title) — Janelle continues her own progressive path toward greatness. So we paired up Mr. Blue-Eyed Soul and the eccentric lady to help VIBE celebrate 20 strong years, Head to VIBE for the full cover story.
