it nearly happened over 5 years ago when Willow Smith (remember her??) nearly made #1 but until this week every #1 act has been by an artist born after myself ohmy.gif Yes, Shawn Mendes is only 17 years old.

so who was the first act younger than you to go to #1?

Yep, Shawn for me too. I don't want to say it makes me feel old because I know that'll piss of the err vintage members but it definitely makes me feel I'm growing up when people my age or under are starting to get chart hits.

Lorde for me too - until she came along I don't think any #1s had been by artists even close to my age, but now there have been several younger than me sad.gif

they had a #1 in 1977 as The Jacksons. MJ was born in 1958 and he was the youngest I think.

but the point of the thread is who had a #1 first after you were born

I actually think it was Sean Kingston who is around 18 months to 2 years younger than me. I don't even think there were any close calls before then.

EDIT: he's older than I thought but still younger than me. I'm September 88, he's February 90.

Thought it was Lorde, but I looked it up to make sure, and apparently A*M*E from "Need U (100%)" is 8 months younger than me so her I guess. Lorde is the first lead artist to be younger than me though.

Randy is younger, he was born in 1961.

Little Jimmy Osmond for me as well, I think unsure.gif

Will be Shawn Mendes for me also (as I was born 12 days after Lorde). Not a lot of diversity in this thread so far lol ~
