Eve gets up close and personal on the cover of Lip Lock, her first album in over a decade. The Philly rapper rocks a metallic lip and heavy eye makeup on the black-and-white artwork. She only wanted to show her face to represent the album’s different moods.
“I don’t want people to take [Lip Lock] too seriously,” she tells Billboard. “I’m not trying to relive any moments of my life. I’m in a new place in my life. I’m almost a new artist. It’s a fun record.”
Due May 14, the 12-song album features appearances from Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg, Swizz Beatz, Dawn Richard, and Cobra Starship’s Gabe Saporta, who is featured on the first single “Make It Out This Town.”
