“Breaking barriers!” wrote the singer on her Twitter page. “This is Such a Huge Moment For the Community, for any girl they may look up to me. For anyone that can relate. Representation Matters! But Nothing is Impossible!”

This is, indeed, a barrier-breaking cover. As one Twitter user posted:

We know there’s a severe lack of Afro-Latina women on Latina‘s covers, and there’s a particular lack of dark-skinned Afro-Latina women like Amara La Negra. So to see her on the cover is bound to inspire girls who can finally say they have someone like them making it big and showing them anything is possible.
