    The post features some of the most recognizable albums, so recognizable, in fact, that it's easy to distinguish which albums they are even with a major missing component: the female artists who usually inhabit the fronts of them.

    Twitter user @IzzRaifHarz was one of the first to post about the edited covers:

    The covers included several examples where the albums were missing their central figures, including Camila Cabello, Taylor Swift, and Beyoncé, sometimes featuring smoke or blurs in their place.
