FKA Twigs may be “an underground artist moonlighting as a pop star,” but she was just ranked alongside music industry giants like Adele, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and others with her inclusion on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Europe: Entertainment list

Adele is an obvious choice to top just about any list, but FKA Twigs had a big 2015 as well: Her EP M3LL155X charted in several countries (including a peak at No. 60 in the U.S.), she made music with Sia, she made seven short films in front of a live audience, and she got sued over her name, an ultimate “I made it” moment.

Other musical figures who made the cut include Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis, Florence Welch, DJ Snake, Little Simz, and Hozier.
