The pair met in November 2016, having been introduced by British Vogue editor Edward Enninful, and have since collaborated for the rap star’s underwear line as part of his MAINS unisex brand.
While GQ describes the duo as ‘close friends’ the racy embrace on the magazine’s cover and further intimate pics inside has re-ignited speculation that they could actually be dating.
Though the inside interview is yet to be released, the magazine teased that the pair talk race, sex, love and black power.

Naomi shared a teaser image from the shoot on Instagram, but even though their faces were hidden, fans were quick to suggest it was the supermodel and Skepta, mainly thanks to the grime artists’s tattoos.
Since sharing the official cover to her Instagram on Thursday, fans have been quick to give the racy shot their seal of approval.

“If this isn’t the sexiest cover, I don’t know what is,” another added.
“The most beautiful magazine cover I’ve ever seen in my life,” another stated simply.
