Forbes has just released its annual "30 under 30 in Music" list. And it's the two-piece (and relatively unknown) band Florida Georgia Line that get the top spot, whilst the magazine also controversially and wrongly, as we'd like to point out, pitches Iggy at (4) and Azealia at (6). The magazine also pitts Ed Sheeran against Sam Smith, with Smith falling behind with (21) and Sheeran at (20).

Controversy aside, we've picked out some our favourite artists on the list, check our roundup below.
