So Pillowtalk has out-performed every One Direction single EVER

No surprises for affirming that we were totally bowled over by Zayn Malik's debut single, Pillowtalk

I mean, we were expecting a decent pop song but we have literally not stopped listening to the sexy tune since it was dropped last week. 

And it seems the world agrees with us as the single continues to smash records across the globe. 

Zayn's first solo effort debuted at number 1 in the Billboard Charts last week, a victory earned by no One Direction single ever (obviously they have had many number 1's, but no single has actually debuted at the top spot). 

While Best Song Ever came in at number 2 in 2013 and Drag Me Down just about making it to number 3 last summer, Pillowtalk breezed into the top spot just days after it's release. 

Zayn's monumental song is also the highest charting single by any UK debut artist in the Billboard Charts (though we reckon this was helped by the fact he was already well known internationally). 

AND to add to the list of this song's achievements, Pillowtalk is the first time a number one song was performed by an artist beginning with the letter 'z'. 

So there you go. 

Zayn is set to drop his album Mind of Mine next month.
