(CAPITOL RECORDS) – Niall Horan scored his first chart-topping album as a solo artist on Monday (October 30), the third member of boy band One Direction to achieve the feat.
Horan’s album “Flicker” sold 152,000 album units in its first week from music sales and streaming activity, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan.
It follows on the heels of Harry Styles’ self-titled solo album debut in May and Zayn Malik’s “Mind of Mine” debut last year, both of which opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
After Malik left One Direction in 2015, the band went on hiatus and each of its remaining members released solo music.
