Niall Horan has sold over 70 million records as part of the all-conquering One Direction. His debut Platinum single "This Town," released in the fall of 2016, has sold more than three million units globally. The Los Angeles Times said, "The guitar ballad is a tender, swoon-worthy number" and Entertainment Weekly hailed it as "a wistful tale of young love lost." He followed up the ballad's release with the gritty, R&B-infused track "Slow Hands," which went straight to No. 1 in 44 countries and continues to climb the charts around the world. Line of Best Fit said, "He's shed his squeaky clean onesie and donned a crooner coat, giving us one of the coolest, catchiest choruses of 2017 in the process." Both songs and more are found on his highly anticipated solo debut album Flicker.
