Every year, Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People list includes incredible people making a difference. The 2018 installment is no different, and there are quite a few new faces making their debut.

Living My Best Life

Last year, rapper Cardi B. burst onto the scene with her song, “Bodak Yellow.” With the release of her number one album Invasion of Privacy, she’s here to stay for a long time. The NYC artist makes her debut on the list this year along with other music artists including Shawn Mendes, Rihanna, and Ke$ha.


A King Will Rise

It’s hard to ignore the importance of Marvel’s Black Panther. The film shattered every record imaginable and couldn’t have arrived at a better time. Actor Chadwick Boseman, who plays the title role, earned high praise for his performance. The film couldn’t be as successful without director Ryan Coogler at the helm. Both of the men rightfully earned their spot on the list.

The Future Of Justice Begins With Her

Gal Gadot gave young women the power to believe in themselves as Wonder Woman. The 2017 film is considered to be one of the best superhero films ever made, and it’s no surprise Gadot made her debut on this year’s list.
