TIME has released its anticipated TIME 100 list – its selection of 100 influential people that most shaped the past year — today (April 16)! The people who made this year’s bill range from musicians to actors, and even some unexpected pop culture obsessions.

Kanye West graces one of the covers for 2015, and his opening lines for the issue is very ‘Ye appropriate. “Every time I crash the Internet, it’s like this little drop of truth. Every time that I say something that’s extremely truthful out loud, it literally breaks the Internet. So what are we getting the rest of the time?” the “All Day” rapper states.

Other people who made the list this year include Yeezy’s wife, Kim Kardashian — whose feature was written by Martha Stewart. “Beautiful in an exotic, totally exaggerated way, Kim exudes energy, sexuality, drama, determination, impetuousness and happiness. But she and her famous, entrepreneurial siblings—shepherded by a savvy, tireless matriarch—have also expanded the very definition of family,” she says about the reality starlet.

1989 starlet Taylor Swift made the cut as well inside the “Icons” section, with actress Mariska Hargitay writing:

“I’m amazed at how much earned wisdom Taylor threads into her work. She seems tuned in to the greater good, and she embraces—thoughtfully and authentically—the chance to contribute to the world. I’m always trying to find the best words to talk to my kids (and myself) about growing up, but you can’t top her beautifully articulated advice. The haters are gonna hate, but, well, shake it off. She illuminates our inner music that lets us dance to our own beat.”

Bjork, Kevin Hart, Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton, Pop Francis, Emma Watson, Bradley Cooper and dozens more are also featured on the 2015 list. View TIME‘s tweets as well as the full cover below, and let us know in the comments if you agree with their selection this year!
