The kicker is in a bold, black text displaying the singer of the main image's name. This is done to draw attention and illustrate what the main cover line is about. The explanatory is under the kicker in a white colour font to contrast the black. Also to fit it with the cover's colour scheme. it also the only white on the left hand side of the magazine so it stands out the most.
