Now53 is a big party, and all of the biggest and brightest stars in music of the present are invited.

Anyone who grew up as a lover of music in the early-to-mid ‘00s can’t help but remember the ubiquitous compilation series Now That’s What I Call Music!, often known by the short name Now. In these compilations, the biggest hits of the day were compiled into one convenient disc, giving listeners a veritable tasting plate of the music of the moment. This series stuck with the public, too: the Now series is second only to the Beatles in chart history; all 52 of the Now albums have broken into the Billboard 200‘s top ten, with 18 of those taking the number one spot. Well, we’re not but a month into 2015 and Now is already getting the party started with Now53, which features chart dominators such as Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars (“Uptown Funk)”, Sam Smith (“I’m Not the Only One”), Charli XCX (“Boom Clap”), and Usher feat. Juicy J (“I Don’t Mind”).

Whoever came up with the phrase "life is wasted on the youth" has some explaining to do to these ten incredible talents.

Sponsored by Friday Night Tykes


Ready to feel inadequate? As if the achievements of the ten people listed below weren’t impressive enough on their own, many of them were accomplished before the artists reached the age of ten. That’s right: by the time the rest of us normal folks were preparing ourselves to deal with algebra for the first time, these preternaturally talented young people were already taking big steps into the spotlight. Building a talent, whether physical or mental, takes time and dedication, but some people are lucky enough that they have the raw materials to throw a ball long or nail a really difficult piece of music not long after the training wheels came off their bikes.
