Wahey! Niall Horan just broke a HUGE musical record in the States


Niall Horan just released his first solo track, This Town, last week, and it's already exploding.

The former Directioner has made history in the States by becoming the first artists the debut at number one on the Social 50 Countdown Chart.

The chart is given data that's tracked by music analytic company Next Big Sound. 

Basically, it ranks the most popular artists on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Wikipedia, Tumblr and Vine… and Niall has come out on top.

I'm sure the Mullingar man will also be delighted to know that he beat his former bandmate Zayn, who went solo last year. Zayn came third on the chart when he first debuted his new music.

We're delighted for Niall!
