Capital XTRA In The Morning With Jez Welham 6am - 10am
Prepare to feel old, because it was exactly a decade ago that you were jamming out to Sean Pauls 'We Be Burnin' and Omarion's 'Ice Box'.
Released in 2006 off of Beyoncé's 'B'Day' album, 'Irreplaceable' went on to become the best-selling U.S. single of 2007 and the twenty-fifth most successful song of the 2000s in the U.S.
RiRi's come a long way since the release of 'SOS' - her first Billboard number one.
One of the most memorable songs from Justin Timberlake's incredible 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' album, 'SexyBack' still has people quoting it 10 years on.
Back in 2006 you couldn't turn on the radio without hearing Ne-Yo's 'So Sick' blast out of it. The song was Ne-Yo's first UK number one and is still his most successful song to date.
Remember when a baby-faced 17-year-old Chris Brown made his mark on the music scene with his silky smooth vocals on 'Yo (Excuse Me Miss)?'
'Don't Forget About Us' became Mariah's 17th number one track in the US. The achievement meant she tyed the record for the most chart-topping songs by a solo artist (with Elvis Presley, who set the record 36 years earlier!)
Two years before Beyoncé and Jay Z tied the knot, they were starring together in their 'Crazy In Love' follow-up track.
Ten years on 'Goldigger' is still being played on radios and in clubs alike - and no one is surprised. At the time of its release, the track broke the record for the most Digital Downloads ever and won a Grammy for 'Best Rap Solo Performance.'
Jojo didn't stick around for too many hits, but you're kidding yourself if you try to deny that 'Too Little, Too Late' isn't an epic song.
Before Beyoncé released 'If I Were A Boy,' Ciara was already getting the message across with her 2006 song 'Like A Boy.' Who can forget the amazing dance routines and costumes that featured in it?
This song wins the award for catchiest song of the year!
BEP's March 2006 song 'Pump It' reached number three on the UK singles chart.
Anyone that was old enough to be clubbing back in 2006 will know what a huge club-banger this track was. Maybe Eminem and Akon need to team up again 10 years later?
Yes, it was an entire decade ago that you and your friends thought you were Gs singing along to "They see me rollin', they hating..." together.
There's nothing like a Breezy slow-jam and this one, which the singer recorded when he was just 17-years-old, is still one of his best.
The Will.I.Am produced 'My Humps' wasn't just the third biggest song of the year in the UK, it was also one of the defining songs of the noughties.
'We Be Burnin' by Sean Paul was a huge hit in the UK (even bigger than in the US), peaking at number two in the charts. The song that kept it from the top spot? Pussycat Dolls 'Don't Cha.'
Poor Chingy - this song was his last top 10 hit. What went wrong?
Gnarls Barley's success with hit single 'Crazy' marked the turn of music habits in the UK when it became the first single to top charts based on downloads alone. The song remained number 1 for 9 weeks - a record beaten the following year when Rihanna released 'Umbrella.' But most significantly, 'Crazy' was officially the best selling single of 2006.
Omarion's biggest hit single to date was released in 2006 in the US and eventually in 2007 in the UK - the release of a physical CD for the song had been initially cancelled and then re-instated after it found success in the charts.
Seven years before the release of Robin Thicke's most successful song ever, he released 'Lost Without You' a slow-jam that should be on everyones radar.
Another hit from Justin Timberlake's 'FutureSex/ LoveSounds,' this Timbaland-produced track sounds as fresh today as it did when it was released a decade ago.
2006 was a big year for Akon! his Gwen Stefani collaboration peaked at number two in the charts and was the 13th most successful song of 2006.
