TIME have released their second annual “The 30 Most Influential People On The Internet” list, which includes them ranking celebrities by their global impact on social media and their overall ability to drive news.
Drake just made the list by coming #28 out of the #30. You can read why TIME decided to include Drizzy in the list below:
More than perhaps any other artist, Drake understands the power of a meme. Last year, he released a strikingly simple video for “Hotline Bling”-most shots were of him doing goofy dance moves amid a neon backdrop-that all but begged to be parodied. And the Internet obliged, churning out countless GIFs, Vines and spoofs that helped make the song his biggest hit to date. More recently, Drake tapped meme culture to settle a score, using fan-made images to taunt rival Meek Mill during a performance.
The only other rapper on TIME‘s “The 30 Most Influential People On The Internet” list was Kanye West, who actually came #1. Congratulations to Drizzy Drake on making the top 30!
Kanye West has took to Twitter to reveal Drake helped him on his The Life Of Pablo album (available now) and that he has some new music with Drizzy and Future “that’s gonna drop soon”.
The GOOD Music founder tweeted that Drizzy Drake helped him with his “Father Stretch My Hands” and “30 Hours” songs, which are 2 of my personal favorites off TLOP!
