Ciara is the latest cover girl for Essence Magazine and she looks gorgeous.

The “Level Up” hitmaker is one of three celebrities who are gracing the cover of their latest issue. Teyana Taylor and supermodel Iman each have their own too.

The July-August Issue will hit newsstands on June 21.

Each cover has the text “Our Tribe” written across it as they pose in tribal clothing and makeup.

For Ciara’s cover, the “Body Party” songstress is owning long dreadlocks. She has white tribal makeup on her arms, neck, legs, and face. Under the black, see-through garment, she appears to be wearing black-and-white swimwear. She has one arm raised as she rocks the hand-over-the-head pose. Ciara’s fierce long nails are on full display as she stares deep into the camera lens.

In the issue, Cici gets real about having success and having to face ups and downs in-between.

“My faith has carried me through every challenge and triumph,” she states.

“When I was younger and wanting things to happen when I wanted them to happen, I could never have imagined that 15 years later I’d be having the time of my life,” the “Thinkin Bout You” entertainer explained.

“No matter how much success you have, I believe there’s always an opportunity to grow and learn something new.”

Ciara’s cover has caught a lot of attention on her Instagram page where it has achieved over 140,000 likes within seven hours of sharing.
