Beyonce is one of Time magazine's cover gals for its annual '100 Most Influential People' issue.
The 32-year-old singer received the high honor from the mag along with some complimentary words from Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook.
"Beyoncé doesn't just sit at the table. She builds a better one," Sandberg wrote of the powerful songstress, who stunned on the black and white cover in a white two-piece ensemble.
"She raises her voice both on- and offstage to urge women to be independent and lead."
Others who graced the cover include actor Robert Redford, General Motors CEO Mary Barra and Brooklyn Nets center Jason Collins.
Notable mentions from inside the issue are Amy Adams, Benedict Cumberbatch, Seth Meyers, Matthew McConaughey, Miley Cyrus, Kerry Washington and more.
The chosen members of the coveted list all received detailed tributes from fellow public figures praising them for their accomplishments over the last year.
