Cover Battle: Shape or The New Yorker

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle. This Thursday we have Shape versus The New Yorker. For its latest cover, Shape went with the queen of hip-hop, Mary J. Blige. We know, this is an unfair battle already. Blige is not only the legendary Mary J. Blige, she’s 42 years old and looks like that. But look, we don’t need, don’t need, no haters. We just trying to love one another. We just want y’all to have a good time, no more drama in your life. Work real hard to make a dime, if you got beef, your problem, not mine.

The New Yorker, meanwhile, went with an illustration of people sleeping while driving. If this is how commuting is in the future, we’re all in.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
