Hip-hop and R&B diva Lizzo can add yet another accolade to her impressive 2017. 

The formerly Minnesota-based artist was named a top influencer in Forbes' annual 30 Under 30 list

The collection is out together by a panel of three judges, and is for people "topping charts and shifting culture," the page says. Forbes calls its list "the most definitive gathering of today’s leading young change-makers and innovators in the U.S."

Lizzo finds herself in elite company, sharing the music category with breakout stars like Khalid, Migos and Cardi B, as well as established young talent like Hayley Williams and Young Thug.

The Forbes nod is yet another sign that the 29-year-old is thriving in 2017. Her song "Worship," from 2016's breakout EP Coconut Oil, has shown up everywhere from Cadillac commercials to summer's box office smash Girl's Trip. And Lizzo's latest single "Truth Hurts" is turning heads with a sassy, empowering video. 

Stir that in with a run of sold out dates on her Good as Hell tour, plus a queenly homecoming show slated for Myth on New Year's Eve, and Lizzo's rise to superstardom seems unstoppable.
