TIME magazine unveiled its 11th annual "100 Most Influential People in the World" issue on Thursday, and Beyonce nabbed one of the coveted covers.
Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.org, wrote a tribute to the "Drunk in Love" singer, praising her for "[raising] her voice both on-and-offstage to urge women to be independent and lead."
"In December, she took the world by surprise when she released a new album, complete with videos, and announced it on Facebook and Instagram. Beyonce shattered music-industry rules — and sales records," she added.
Other honorees include Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State John Kerry, "Late Night" host Seth Meyers, actress Amy Adams, Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey, singer/producer Pharrell Williams, "Scandal" star Kerry Washington and pop star Miley Cyrus.
The complete "TIME 100" list can be seen in the magazine, on stands this Friday.
