The power couple talk love and sticking by each other's side

Love is in the air and EBONY magazine is celebrating the enchanted feeling with a triple-cover "Black Love" issue featuring Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey, David and Tamela Mann and the above pictured La La and Carmelo Anthony.

The Mrs.-- who's gearing up for Think Like A Man Too, the release of her new book "The Love Playbook" and a role in the 50 Cent-produced series "Power"-- speaks about her strong bond with the NBA star.

"We knew no matter what, we wanted each other," she said. "We needed [to be] in each other’s life, and that’s what’s been able to sustain this relationship all those years."

Inside, Carmelo also explains why La La was the perfect fit for his high-profile lifestyle.

"There were people coming in and out of my life, and I didn’t really know whom to trust," he said. "She was one of the people who stood by my side through thick and thick. Even to this day, she’s always right there."

The glossy also highlights other Black couples such as LeBron and Savannah James, Ciara and Future and Steve and Marjorie Harvey.
