Yesterday, TIME magazine unveiled its "100 Most Influential People" list for 2019, and despite the global influence of musicians such as Childish Gambino, Kanye West, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Kendrick Lamar, not a single rapper was named among the 100.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Taylor Swift, Sandra Oh, Gayle King, footballer Mohamed Salah, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi grace this year's six TIME 100 covers, while Ariana Grande, BTS, and Khalid are among the artists of the year and Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga have been recognized as 2019 icons.

As is customary, each of the TIME 100 is honored by a blurb written by a peer or cultural figure. This year, Gal Godot writes about Johnson, Shawn Mendes pays tribute to Swift, Troye Sivan shares his thoughts on Grande, Celine Dion reflects on Gaga, and Beyoncé talks about Michelle Obama.

Other notable names in this year's TIME 100 include LeBron James, Brie Larson, Spike Lee, Emilia Clarke, Mahershala Ali, Rami Malek, Mark Zuckerberg, and Chrissy Teigen.

The complete 2019 TIME 100 list can be found in the April 29 issue of TIME.
