Forbes has unleashed its annual 30 Under 30 list, along with its music branch. These are the most influential 30 musicians under the age of 30 who are topping the charts and shifting culture, as judged by Boi-1da, Marshmello and Molly DeWolf Swenson.
Camila Cabello (21), Billie Elish (16), Post Malone (23), Lil Pump (18) and Juice WRLD (19) are just some of the artists on the list for 2019, which represents pop, hip hop, electronic and beyond. And, no, those aren’t their respective spots on the list — those numbers are the ages of these young talents.
Electronic producer and vocalist Yaeji (25) represents the genre with two acclaimed EPs, tour dates around the world, and even a slot at Coachella. Producer Madame Gandhi (29), who has toured with M.I.A., also makes the list.
It comes as no surprise, Marshmello’s manager Moe Shalizi (28) is also on the list.
In addition, co-founders of Monstercat, Mike Darlington (29) and Ari Paunonen (29), are given a nod for their work with the successful dance label.
