It’s been a busy week for CoverGirl! Just days after announcing Pink as the new face of the beauty brand, Janelle Monáe has joined the mega-watt team, too.

The singer — known for her signature black-tie style and red pout — not only joins Pink, but follows in the footsteps of other superstar brand ambassadors including Taylor Swift, Sofia Vergara, Drew Barrymore, Ellen DeGeneres and Queen Latifah.

“One of my core values is to help redefine what it means to be a strong and beautiful woman in the music and fashion worlds and to empower the wonderful things that make us unique,” the singer says in a statement. “Becoming a CoverGirl is truly an honor and a gift: it opens up a new platform for me to inspire women to feel stronger, braver and more beautiful inside and out.”

Monáe’s campaign will debut in the September issue of VogueTell us: What do you think of the singer as the latest CoverGirl?
