Forbes just shared its annual 30 Under 30 feature, which highlights "600 young leaders and entrepreneurs" across different industries. Just as with last year, the music category is stacked with some of the most exciting talent around.
DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, and Lil Nas X are all included on this year's 30 Under 30, which was judged by 21 Savage, Adriana Arce, the Chainsmokers, and Mickey Shiloh. After the year all three of them had, namely Lil Nas X with "Old Town Road," it's easy to see why they landed on the list. "He's got a lot potential," Savage said of Lil Nas X. "He broke all types of records with one song—his first song."
However, there's plenty of other rapidly ascending talent as well as some young veterans, too. King Princess, Tyler, the Creator, Summer Walker, Tierra Whack, Teyana Taylor, Maggie Rogers, Maluma, Normani, and Billie Eilish's brother and songwriting partner Finneas O'Connell are among those to also make the 30-strong list.
Amy Allen, Jon Bellion, Nija Charles, Chloe x Halle, Glenne Christiaansen, Luke Combs, Edgar Esteves, Simon Gebrelul, Joseph Harris, Illenium, Zach Kardisch, Gabz Landman, Lauv, Adam Richman & Joe Silberzweig, Carly Pearce, Harry Roberts, Brandon Silverstein, and Sarah Tehrani round out the rest of the list.
Last year saw appearances from 21 Savage, Post Malone, Juice WRLD, Rico Nasty, and Billie Eilish.
