Time's Most Influential People On The Internet List Includes Canadians Drake And Lilly Singh

Our very own web sweethearts

In a world of Kanyes and Damn Daniels, two Canadian superstars are considered our very own web sweethearts.

Time magazine released their second annual Most Influential People on the Internet list, including musicians, politicians and news-makers with powerful social media accounts across the web.

The list this year includes everyone from CBS’s "Late Late Show" host James Corden (who doesn't love carpool karaoke?) to author J.K. Rowling to Indian prime minister Narendra Modi. But our favourites, and we're bias of course, have to be Toronto rapper Drake and Toronto YouTube superstar Lilly Singh a.k.a Superwoman.

Drake was celebrated for his love of memes, and his Internet beef in which he crushed fellow rapper Meek Mill with two diss tracks. Singh on the other hand, who also made Forbes' 30 Under 30 list, was noted for her motivational videos, hilarious alter egos and the fact that she released a documentary earlier this year.

Although the 29-year-old rapper and the 27-year-old comedian were the only Canadians on the list, fellow influencer Andrew B. Bachelor — or King Bach — was also born in Toronto but moved to Florida where he currently resides (we really wish he stayed).

Now the only thing left is a Drake and Singh collaboration, which we really hope will happen. Watch the video above to see who else made the list.
