TIME released their first every ‘100 Next’ – a list that features all who represent the future within their respected industries.  Camila Cabello, Keke Palmer, Lil Nas X and Lilly Singh are just some of the amazing talent who made TIME’s list.

 

 

So how did TIME choose their 2019 ‘100 Next?’  According to their website, it states, “In the spirit of the TIME 100, many of our TIME 100 Next profiles are written by more established influencers, including TIME 100 alumni—testament to the powerful ways that influence flows across and between generations.  The TIME 100 Next members all have grand ambitions, and they know they may face even greater setbacks. But by and large, “they are driven by hope,” says TIME executive editor Dan Macsai, who oversees the TIME 100 franchise. “They are eager to defy the odds—and fight for a better future.”

 

Below is the FULL list of TIME’s honourees.

Artists

 

Camila Cabello

“Camila Cabello is a pure and magnetic artist. We met a few years ago at the Latin Grammys, and shortly afterward, she told me that she wanted to sing together. In all my years in this industry, Camila was the first artist I’ve ever told that she could pick whatever song she wanted to sing.  In times like these, when noise can distort the purity of an artist’s message, Camila has managed to honor her story and her background in an authentic way with her pop music.”  Alejandro Sanz

 

 

Lili Reinhart

“Her empathy and truthfulness have grounded her and helped her navigate the difficult world in which she works. It is such a pleasure to watch her use her agency in order to effect change. We look forward to seeing the many ways in which she will use her honesty and openness in order to help others in the future.”  Kate & Laura Mulleavy

 

 

Liza Koshy

“Liza brings a special vibrancy to everything she does, as you’ll see soon in Work It, a movie I’m producing about dance and the high school experience. Liza is an amazing dancer who’s on the most amazing trajectory: she’s someone people love already, often from her videos on YouTube or TikTok, but she’s also a self-starter, an entrepreneur, fiercely smart and an empathetic soul. Liza is very in touch with what’s happening in the world around her, and a visionary in terms of what people will relate to.”  Alicia Keys

 

Billie Eilish

“Even before releasing her debut album, Billie Eilish was already considered a pop prodigy. But since the arrival of When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? in March, Eilish has churned out a series of blockbuster hits—most notably “Bad?Guy,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year, a first for someone born in the 2000s. She has a sound that is tinged with existential vulnerability: “Man is such a fool. Why are we saving him?” she sings on “All the Good Girls Go to Hell.” Still, with fans ranging from Justin Bieber to Elton John, Eilish has proved she can speak to many generations.”  – Raisa Bruner

 

Megan Thee Stallion

“Known for her dexterous flow and lyrical mastery, Megan exudes a self-assured confidence that dares others to match it. Case in point: “hot?girl summer,” a self-love missive she coined that became ubiquitous earlier this year, birthing memes and eventually a single of the same title with Nicki Minaj.” Cady Lang

 

Noah Centineo

“Centineo first turned heads as Peter Kavinsky in Netflix’s 2018 rom-com To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, which the platform has described as one of its most-viewed original films ever. A year later, Centineo’s signature aw-shucks charm continues to win him fans, both onscreen and off. (Just ask his 17 million Instagram followers.) In 2021, he will star as He-Man in the upcoming Masters of the Universe reboot.”  Raisa Bruner

Bad Bunny

"When I first saw Bad Bunny perform, what struck me the most was how—even before he opened his mouth—he demanded attention with his larger-than-life presence. Then, he proceeded to unleash his undeniable talent onstage and, game over, I was instantly hooked," writes @ricky_martin of the unapologetic Puerto Rican musician and creative genius @badbunnypr. "I truly admire his commitment to help bring awareness to topics affecting not only our island, but the world. He shows up when it matters most, and makes sacrifices for what he believes is right in his heart. No matter what."

Keke Palmer
“There are so many things I admire about her. One of them is her work ethic. She has a lot on her plate—including her recent role in the movie Hustlers—and is always willing to go the extra mile. I also admire how she is so sure of herself as a person. She stands by what she believes and never compromises her values. I am so impressed with how level-headed she is, especially for someone her age who has been in this business as long as she has.” Michael Strahan

 

Lil Nas X
“I’ll never forget the morning. I was having coffee and Ron Perry from Columbia Records sent me “Old Town Road.” He said Lil Nas X wanted me to sing on it. But I told Columbia it was perfect. I couldn’t do anything to it. They asked if I’d give it a shot and come into the studio with Nas to record a third verse. We wrote it with R&B songwriter Jozzy, and it was born right there in the studio. It was magical. I told Nas he was going to be a light in this world and he would shine brighter than anyone else. And he has. He’s brought everyone together, from all musical genres and generations. “Old Town Road” changed my world—and his—forever.” Billy Ray Cyrus

Innovators

 Lilly Singh
“But Lilly’s new gig is all hers—and she earned the hell out of it. I’ve been her fan for years, and I’m always amazed by how hard she works. She built an empire before she was 30 years old! That doesn’t happen without hustle. And even better, she did it by being herself. You don’t rack up millions of fans all over the world without being someone people can relate to. And people can tell Lilly’s real. That’s how she’s built the incredible brand she already has, and that’s just one of a hundred reasons why she makes a great talk-show host.” Jimmy Fallon
