Megan Thee Stallion and Naomi Osaka Among 'TIME' 100 Most Influential People in the World

Along with Ali Wong, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Hudson, The Weeknd and more.

TIME has unveiled its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. For its 17th issue, the publication has released eight covers worldwide spotlighting members from the TIME100: Megan Thee Stallion, The Weeknd, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci, Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai, COVID-19 frontline nurse Amy O’Sullivan, President of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen, and Black Lives Matter founders Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi.

In addition to the existing covers, the latest issue also features a special tribute in honor of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was featured on the 2015 TIME100 list. TIME‘s CEO and Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal said in a press release:

“This year’s list looks far different than any of us could have predicted just six months ago. The TIME100 has always been a mirror of the world and those who shape it. While you will certainly find people who wield traditional power on this year’s list – heads of state, CEOs, major entertainers­ – it also includes many extraordinary, lesser-known individuals who seized the moment to save lives, build a movement, lift the spirit, repair the world… their work challenges each of us to wield our own influence toward a world that is healthier, more resilient, more sustainable and just.”

Every year, TIME pairs up the list members with guest contributors who write about them. For the 2020 TIME100, pairings include: Denzel Washington on Michael B. Jordan, Common on Angela Davis, Oprah Winfrey on Tyler Perry, Taylor Swift on Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Maya Moore on Naomi Osaka, Tilda Swinton on Bong Joon-Ho, Kim Kardashian on JoJo Siwa and many more. On top of that, this year’s lineup highlights 54 women, including Selena Gomez, Maya Moore, Halsey, Megan Thee Stallion, Ali Wong, Kristalina Georgieva, Allyson Felix, Jennifer Hudson and others.

Take a closer look at all eight covers in the gallery above. You can check out the full list on TIME‘s website.
