Capital XTRA In The Morning With Jez Welham 6am - 10am
Featuring The Weeknd, Iggy Azalea, Disclosure and more, it's hard to believe that all of these artists are 90s babies.
The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) looks a lot older than he is, but is in fact only 25. He was born in 1990 and, if you think about it, has released an enormous amount of material for someone so young.
It feels like Iggy Azalea has been around for a lot longer than the few years that she has actually been in the limelight, but the reality is that Iggy is only 24-years-old. She will be 25 on 7th June this year.
Chicago hailing Chance The Rapper might be only 22-years old (his birthday is on 16th April 1993), but he's not let his youth hold him back. He started gaining a lot of recognition after the release of his 2013 mixtape 'Acid Rap' and has gone on to even bigger and better things from there.
Disclosure brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence were born in 1991 and 1994 respectively. Both were DJing from a young age in their bedrooms in Surrey, but these days they prefer to perform at Glastonbury and Coachella. Did we mention their Grammy nomination?
You knew she was petite, but did you know she was only 21-years-old? Ariana Grande rose to fame at just 15-years-old when she got her big break in the Nickelodeon television show Victorious. Since then she's achieved a US number one album and worldwide fame.
One of the youngest on our list, Martin Garrix was born in 1996. When he first started releasing music he was still in school and wasn't even old enough to get into the clubs!
Ella Eyre, might have missed out on the BRITs Critics Choice Award, coming second to Sam Smith, but the vocalist behind Rudimental's number one track went on to win a BRIT for 'Best Single' for 'Waiting All night'.
She might be young but she's ready. Born in May 1991, Azealia Banks is just 23 years old. She's definitely got a lot to say for someone so young.
Can you believe Lorde was only 16-years-old when 'Royals' blew up worldwide?
'Down On My Luck' singer Vic Mensa is just 21-years-old - his birth date being 6th June 1993. After featuring on fellow 21-year-old Chance The Rapper's 'Acid Rap' mixtape he went on to tour with J Cole and Wale. Most recently, Mensa went on to feature on Kanye West's 'Wolves.' Not bad for a 21-year-old.
At age 21-years-old, in 2012, Ed won the 'Best British Breakthrough Act' award at the BRIT awards. Considering he's only 24-years-old now his achievements are amazing - performing at Glastonbury, six Grammy nominations, hit singles across the globe... Need we go on? Picture: PA
Sam Smith had his first number one single with 'La La La' before he even hit his 20's. 2014 saw him release his debut album 'In The Lonely Hour,' which homed several number one singles and went top 10 across the globe. It also lead him to pick up four Grammy awards this year.

DJ Mustard's name is on so many big beats it feels like he has been around forever, but actually the hitmaker is only 25-year-olds and was born in June 1990.
