TIME posted their annual list of the 100 most influential people. The list is broken up into five categories: pioneers, artists, icons, titans and leaders. After having breakout years in their careers Tiffany Haddish, Rihanna and Cardi B find themselves among the distinguished list of TIME 100 people.

Haddish became the face of Black comedy this year and her letter was written by Kevin Hart. “Now Tiffany is bringing a whole new level of fresh to the comedy scene. She’s just so authentic and unfiltered,” the comedian writes of his peer. Cardi B skyrocketed to mainstream fame as a former stripper turned rapper. Taraji P. Henson speaks on the “Bodak Yellow” rapper’s comfortability with herself. “When you are cool with who you are, no one can use it against you,” Henson writes.  Rihanna broke records starting an inclusive beauty line and her letter is penned by U.K. singing sensation Adele.
