"Introducing the FIRST EVER Creative Director In Residence at the legendary @playboy, it's ME!!!" the "WAP" rapper wrote. "Joining the @playboy family is a dream and I know yall are going to love what we put together."

"I'm startin this party right as the Founding Creative Director and a founding member of CENTERFOLD the new creator-led platform from Playboy coming soon!!," she said.

According to a press release obtained by People magazine, the Grammy Award-winning musician will "provide artistic direction across co-branded fashion and sexual wellness merchandise collections, digital editorial, experiential activations and more," as part of the partnership.

The release goes on to say that she also serves as a founding member of the magazine's creator-driven platform, CENTERFOLD, which is a social media-focused platform that will give content creators the power and tools to interact with their followers and fans. CENTERFOLD is expected to launch later this month. 

"It is a dream come true to officially join the Playboy family. I can't believe this is real." Cardi said in the release. "For as long as I can remember, I've felt connected to Playboy. It's truly the original platform for uncensored creativity and I'm inspired by its incredible legacy of fighting for personal freedoms. I have so many ideas already — I can't wait!"
