Michael was selected People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2020. He is the fifth non-white man, and the fifth man of significant African ancestry, to have been given this title by the magazine (Denzel Washington, in 1996, is the first, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, in 2016, Idris Elba, in 2018, and John Legend, in 2019, are the others, fitting both criteria).
