English singer-songwriter Tahliah Debrett Barnett, better known by her stage name FKA Twigs, posed topless for one of four covers of V Magazine's Spring 2015 issue, otherwise named The Music Issue. The other three covers feature breakout artists Sam Smith, Jesse Ware and Tinashe.

Photographer duo Inez & Vinoodh shot the up-and-coming artist, who released her first full-length studio album LP1 to critical acclaim, for the cover. The singer wears only a nude pair of underwear and conceals her breasts with a heavy adornment of silver tribal jewelry.

Twigs was a no-brainer for the cover, considering that the issue is dedicated to exploring "The New Sound of Soul." She counts Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Marvin Gaye as inspiration for her alternative R&B sound.
