'Hard work has paid off': Niall Horan celebrates epic musical milestone

'Hard work has paid off': Niall Horan celebrates epic musical milestone

Niall Horan has achieved a No.1 album in the United States with his debut solo record Flicker.

Horan follows bandmate Harry Styles, whose solo work made it to No. 1 last May, and Zayn Malik, whose album debuted previous year.

One Direction is the only band since The Beatles from which three members have had solo albums make it to number one in the chart.

During the week of Flicker's October 20 release, Horan made the TV rounds, visiting The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Today.

'An album that I wrote has gone to #1 in the United States and I can not thank you guys enough for supporting it'.

London dominates global currency trading and is Europe's main finance hub. It has been asking firms to submit contingency plans for such a scenario.

He later tweeted an additional, touching message where he thanked his label, management and band, and said: "My mind is completely blown".

For those not well-versed in Beatles history, members John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison all dropped multiple solo albums that hit No. 1 (Ringo Starr peaked at No. 2). "I'd prefer the next few years".

"An album that I wrote has gone to #1 in the United States and I can not thank you guys enough for supporting it", he wrote. "The love I get on a daily basis is incredible", he wrote.

However, despite their solo success, Niall recently reassured fans that he's definitely up for reuniting with One Direction - also comprised of Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson - and insisted the boys would be "stupid not to" reform.

The Mullingar native (24) joins his former One Direction bandmates Harry Styles and Zayn Malik in having an album reach the top of the Billboard 200 chart.
