For their annual men’s issue, Essence Magazine got actor Omari Hardwick and singer Maxwell on their dual cover.
In the issue which drops next Friday, the two men talk about fame, success and love.
Maxwell also talks about his forthcoming album black SUMMERS’ night while also admitting that he doesn’t really care about fame. “I never worry about whether I’m going to be relevant at this point, not because I feel like I’m so dope, but it’s just I play like I’m losing—even if I’m winning—because it makes you work that much harder,” he said. “These records are so cathartic to me. I’m not here to be famous; I’m here to touch souls.”
