Beyonce has been named the most influential person in the world. Time Magazine has bestowed the honor on the Grammy Award winning singer who made history with the secret release of her album via social media. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg praised the mulit-hyphenate entertainer who is featured in the Titans section of the issue which is now available.

In December, she took the world by surprise when she released a new album, complete with videos, and announced it on Facebook and Instagram. Beyoncé shattered music-industry rules — and sales records.
One song includes words by novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: “We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much.’ ” Beyoncé has insisted that girls “run the world” and declared, “I’m not bossy, I’m the boss.” She raises her voice both on- and offstage to urge women to be independent and lead.

Pharrell Williams, Pope Francis, Serena Williams and NBA player Jason Collins have also made the issue.
