Harper's Bazaar does an ICON issue annually, but this year they switched it up a bit.

The magazine tapped some of the greatest musical artists of our time for a collection of covers that features them and their children. Aww.

Nine musical icons were selected to be featured in the September 2018 issue, including Kanye West, Erykah Badu, Mariah Carey, Lionel Richie, Christina Aguilera, Bruce Springsteen, Theodora Richards and more for creative director Carine Roitfeld's "Icons: The First Families Of Music" issue.

On one cover, Kanye is in daddy mode snapping it up with his 5-year-old daughter North West and 2-year-old Saint West. Baby Chicago was noticably missing, but maybe she was too young. For the cover, 'Ye opened up about his deepest desire for his kids.

"I hope my children never lose their confidence to society," he shared.

Love that. It's nice to see a black man on the cover of a magazine with his children being that we don't get that often. Yes, he's still cancelled, but we still appreciate the representation for black fathers.

Soulful songstress Erykah Badu was joined by her gorgeous daughters Mars and Puma (sans her son Seven) for a somber mother-daughter flick, shot by Mario Sorrenti (he did all of the covers). Ms. Badu wants her children to be servicemen for the less fortunate.

“I want my children to use their gifts in order to do service for others. That is, to make sure that their gifts are serving something bigger than themselves. And to do what I say," she said.

Ha! Not even mad.

Mariah Carey and her 7-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe were all smiles for their cover. MiMi dished on why her family is her No. 1 priority in life.

"Family is the most important thing to me,” she shared. “My children have provided me with such joy as they’ve developed their own unique personalities.”

She's not lying either. Remember when she had them in tow for her "Sweet Sweet Fantasy" Tour?

She added, “Moroccan has a knack for technology, and Monroe is really musical. They’re each other’s best friends, and I love watching them grow up.”

Legend singer Lionel Richie, who went on tour with Mariah Carey last year, is also featured in the special issue with his daughter/reality star Nicole Richie. Maybe his daughter Sofia was busy with Scott Disick and his son Miles was booked for another modeling gig. However, he wishes the same for them all.

"I wish for my kids to discover who they are and explore their passions to the fullest," he shared.


The Harper's Bazaar September Icons issue hits newsstands on August 21st.
