Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit 2021 has revealed its cover stars Megan Thee Stallion, Leyna Bloom & Naomi Osaka.

Why is this important? Well, Megan Thee Stallion is the first-ever rapper to make the cover, while Leyna Bloom is the first-ever transgender cover star and Naomi Osaka is believe it or not the first-ever female black athlete to feature on the cover.

This is literally history in the making (We are not sure what took Sports Illustrated so long, but, hey, better late than never, right?) SI you took your time on this) and the women look stunning as they grace the covers of sports illustrated.
