Beyonce just scored a major honor as TIME Magazine‘s cover girl for their annual TIME 100 issue.
In it, they rate the most influential people in the world and Queen Bey is sitting at the top of that list.
“Beyoncé doesn’t just sit at the table. She builds a better one. Today she sits at the head of the boardroom table at Parkwood Entertainment,” says the article.
It also applauds her ground-breaking album release of Beyonce and praised her for going against the grain by including Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on the record, “Pretty Hurts.”
“In December, she took the world by surprise when she released a new album, complete with videos, and announced it on Facebook and Instagram,” it says. “Beyoncé shattered music-industry rules — and sales records.”
