Top 10 Most Handsome Black Men in The World 2017
If you needed something to brighten up your day, we’ve got something that might just put a smile on your face. The top 10 most handsome black men in the world 2017, from the world of movies, music, politics and more. Of course, we welcome your input and we’d love to hear if you think we’ve neglected anyone. It’s very hard work just trying to pick 10 out of a range of absolutely stunning hunks, but here’s the cream of the crop that you’ll be seeing over 2017 and beyond, and we hope that you enjoy it.
1 – John Legend
He writes great music, sings like an angel, and adores his wife, Chrissy Teigen, and new baby, Luna, more than any other man we’ve ever seen. Clearly, everything about us melts our heart. We wish we had all of him … (Do you see what we did there?)
He’s 38 years old, but we don’t think he looks it, and he’s accomplished a lot. And when we say a lot, we mean A LOT! He’s won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a Tony Award, and no fewer than TEN Grammy Awards. And, if we’re being honest, we can’t wait to see what he gets up to next!
2 – Idris Elba
Not just an actor, Idris Elba is also a DJ and a musician, although it’s his work with British TV station, BBC, that has shot him to fame. With The Wire, Luther, The Office, CSI: Miami and even Law & Order, as well as movies such as Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom, in which he had the main part of Nelson Mandela, and The Jungle Book, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Pacific Rim, and RocknRolla, it’s hardly surprising that he’s the talk of the town right now.
Not bad for the kid who originally came from Hackney in London, England.
3 – Kanye West
Whether you love him or you hate him, one thing is for sure … He’s the guy that everyone’s talking about recently, and it’s not always for the best reasons either. Of course, he is now very famously the husband of reality TV queen, Kim Kardashian, but that’s not all he does. As well as singing, rapping, and songwriting, he’s also a fashion designer and a record producer, and an entrepreneur.
He’s had his fair share of controversy, particularly as far as social media is concerned, and then there was that time he stormed the stage when Taylor Swift was winning an award. Oh, and also the time that he said some stuff about Taylor in a song that Taylor said she didn’t agree to and then Kim proud otherwise … allegedly. We can barely keep up, how about you?
4 – John Boyega
John Boyega is not just an actor, well known for his part in the recent Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but he’s a producer too. As well as a string of TV appearances, the English actor has appeared in a number of movies since his debut in 2011 in Attack the Block, including the recent hit, Detroit, The Circle, and more.
If you wanted to see a little more of one of the top 10 most handsome black men in the world 2017, you’ll need to check out the 2018 release, Pacific Rim: Uprising.
5 – Jay Ellis
He’s a relative newbie to the world of acting, but he’s one that is fast making a name for himself. We’re predicting very big things for this hunk. He’s appeared in TV shows such as Insecure for HBO, and also BET’s The Game. He’s also popped up in Masters of Sex, NCIS: Los Angeles, iCarly, Hart of Dixie, How I Met Your Mother, and a whole host more.
Keep your eyes peeled for this hunk in the future, because we predict he’s going to become a big name.
6 – Barack Obama
He’s no longer the President, but that doesn’t matter to us. We’ll still love him like he’s our President anyway. The first black president, and the 44th one too, he was actually born in Hawaii just two years after it was added as the 50th state. As well as spending his childhood in Washington and Hawaii, he also spent some time in Indonesia, before then going to Harvard Law School. Not just the first black president of the United States of America, he made it
As well as spending his childhood in Washington and Hawaii, he also spent some time in Indonesia, before then going to Harvard Law School. Not just the first black president of the United States of America, he made it to become the first black president of the infamous Harvard Law Review.
He’s done a lot in his life, and he did a lot for the United States of America during his time at the top too. It was said that he created over eleven million jobs in the time he was in power.
7 – The Weeknd
Abel Makkonen Tesfaye is better known as The Weeknd, the famous boyfriend of the just-as-famous singer, Selena Gomez. Born in Toronto, Canada, he’s only 27 years old but has achieved a fair bit in his relatively short life. His musical career actually started anonymously in 2010 when he uploaded songs to Youtube.
Following mix tracks were very well received, and it wasn’t long before he released songs under his own record label, and even started hitting the Billboard charts. He has since won a total of 9 Juno Awards, and also a couple of Grammy Awards and, let’s face it, keeps releasing some absolute banging records.
8 – Will Smith
He’s been in his fair share of movies over the years, but Will Smith doesn’t appear to have aged much at all! It’s not like he’s been kicking back and relaxing either, with a string of hit movies under his belt, including Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness, Bad Boys and Bad Boys II, Men in Black and subsequent sequels, Suicide Squad, Seven Pounds, Hancock, I Am Legend … We don’t really need to list anymore, do we? Although, just in case we hadn’t reinforced how great an actor he was by now, here’s a few more fun facts about one of the top 10 most handsome black men in the world 2017 – he’s won 4 Grammy Awards, has been called “the most powerful actor in Hollywood”, has had impressive careers in TV, film and music, as well being a comedian, songwriter and producer …
To say we’re in awe of him would be an understatement.
9 – Miguel
You might not know who this chap is, but we love his music. Miguel, born Miguel Jontel Pimentel in California, is a record producer, singer, songwriter and an actor, and he’s been compared to the likes of musical legend, Prince. He’s been hitting the charts lately but is still somewhat under the radar.
We’d definitely recommend you give his music a listen and come back to let us know what you think!
10 – Jason Derulo
A finally, one last musician. We can’t seem to say his name without singing it, and that’s one thing Jason Derulo is very good at – releasing catchy tunes that you catch on to in the morning and end up singing for the entire rest of the day. His real name is Jason Joel Desrouleaux, which we think sounds very romantic, and he’s just 27 years old.
You may remember him from musical hits such as “Talk Dirty”, “In My Head”, and also the recent song that we’re STILL singing, “Swalla”, also featuring Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign.
