Among other accolades, the song was named as one of the “Best Songs of 2017 So Far” by Billboard, and is approaching 1B combined streams worldwide including 76M from the lyric video:
Last week, Niall released new single, “Too Much To Ask,” which USA Today has named its “Song Of The Week."
Niall is one of the most successful songwriters of his time. As a member of One Direction, whose songs are also administered by Downtown, Niall co-wrote tracks on every one of the group’s five albums, which sold over 70 million records. In 2015, 1D set the record for most Top 10 song debuts, including the multi-platinum Niall co-write “Story of My Life,” which topped the global charts.
His debut single as a solo artist, “This Town,” was the first track to ever debut at #1 on Billboard’s Social 50 Chart and recently earned Niall a Platinum Award for songwriting from the National Music Publishers Association. “This Town” also peaked at the top of the charts in 61 countries and Top 5 in 78 countries.
Up next for Niall is his solo debut tour Flicker World Tour, confirmed for 2018 with dates in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand already announced, and other dates around the world to be announced soon, where he will be supported by Country superstar Maren Morris.
