I will discuss the implications of LHCb results that show intriguing hints for lepton flavor universality violation in rare B meson decays. These hints are fully consistent with several other anomalies that have been observed in rare B decays over the last few years. A very good description of all the data is obtained by new physics in form of a single four-fermion contact interaction. I will discuss new physics models that could explain the experimental results as well as further measurements that could help establishing new physics in rare B decays with more data.
