There are rumours of Niall finally releasing his second single next month, seems to be coming from The Sun so take it with a pinch of salt but it has been a while since This Town!
Jonjo
Tbf, aren't The Sun actually quite reliable when it comes to artists releasing music? I don't think I've read one wrong report laugh.gif There may have been something where a single got pushed back last minute or shelved completely, but that's a rare occurrence and not really The Sun's fault.

Excited to hear it. 'This Town' was "nice and pleasant" but that was it. I never really went back to it on my own accord. So I'm hoping this is a bit more livelier and picks up some interest from me.
Juan Carlos
WBBM-FM, a US radio station, is listing a song from him called "Slow Hands" as their Hot Pick on AllAccess, so this could be out in the following weeks.
JosephStyles
Confirmed for release on Thursday!!
Maurice!
The 2nd single will be called Slow Hands and is out this Thursday.
Cover art:
365
That cover art is really, really bad...
pippa
The cover is bad, and it looks cheap.
Jonjo
I really want him to be the most successful from the group, he is definitely the most likeable! I do think he should be going more for Shawn Mendes acoustic pop as opposed to the Ed Sheeran softer acoustic pop of 'This Town'. So hopefully this one is a bit edgier!
Sonia Fowler
I am actually really hyoed for this. This Town was my second fave of the solo members so I am hyped for his second single!
AdamAloud
What happened to releasing on a Friday?
Jonjo


I really like it!
Regina
Amazing. Also love the single cover, he looks rugged and dirty and sexy AF.
ThePensmith
I've just had a listen now. And again rather liking this! Reminds me of James Morrison a bit.
365
Surprised this is as decent as it is. Instantly better than This Town.
ElectroBoy
Just listening to this now and actually surprised; it is way more instant than This Town
Liаm
It's ok, better than This Town for sure but it sounds like nothing more than an ok Olly Murs album track. If you want funky done right, Attention by Charlie Puth is right there kink.gif
Josh!
This is alright but this style of music doesn't massively appeal to me and his output has so far been my least favourite of the band's solo ventures. At least it is far more exciting than This Town was but the chorus is already starting to get on my nerves a bit tbh laugh.gif It's making me kind of sad that I vastly preferred their output as a group sad.gif The only killer solo single so far has been Pillow Talk imo!
Tawdry Hepburn
I agree it's much better than 'This Town', but it couldn't exactly be worse.
Jonjo
This is a real ear worm! It just gets better and more addictive with each passing listen!

This is me basically, it's only okay but it's way better than This Town which isn't hard tbh laugh.gif I've been so disappointed with his solo material especially considering he was always my favourite member of 1D! (mainly for looks-related reasons ngl)

Very nice vocal performance. He's a bit bland as a performer though, isn't he? He's a nice personality and you really root for him, but when it comes to his performances he's just a bit there.
ThePensmith
Nice little cover feature and interview on Billboard magazine: http://www.billboard.com/amp/articles/news...-direction-2017

ElectroBoy
Back into the top 10 on I-tunes smile.gif
pippa
It would be wonderful if this can achieve a top 20 place this coming week.
ElectroBoy
Niall's going to be in the live lounge next Thursday which should give a boost.

Also up to 23 on spotify and 11 still on i-tunes - could be enough to place top 20 this week (maybe)
DrunkneliaStrEet
Definitely passed this over far too quickly, absolutely loving it now!
ThePensmith
He performs this on The One Show on BBC One tonight at 7pm.
JosephStyles
This is finally growing on me! Really enjoying it right now biggrin.gif
pippa
Me too, it certainly is a grower. Its number 12 in the first set of midweeks which means it will be achieving a new top 20 peak this week. That said, i would love it to enter the top 10 region of the chart.

Slow Hands is now up to 14 on steaming on Spotify and when you look at the Kworb breakdown is closing on Despacito; plus is also selling 3 times the amount of the song at 10.

I think a top 10 placing is very possible this week especially as there is going to be more promo throughout the week
pippa
Number 8 in the latest mid week information and i remain hopeful it can hold a top 10 position now.

It should do... its up to 13 on Spotify and is selling double the song at number 4 on I-tunes
pippa
Number 4 in the latest update and only a few hundred sales behind Liam. If Niall keeps increasing it is likely he will overtake Liam this week. This would be wonderful as it would give Niall his first top 5 hit or possibly top 3.
Court
He won't overtake Liam this week. There is almost certainly at least 2 days of streaming data missing, which is why he was able to pass the rest of the Top 10 so quickly.

I could see him overtaking next week though, if he continues to increase on streaming. Although Liam is increasing on iTunes again now that the Benefit songs are falling and is still consistent on streaming. He should almost certainly be top 5 next week regardless though. Glad that this is doing better than This Town since it's a much better song.
DrunkneliaStrEet
Now obsessed with this *.* Hope it can stay around in the charts for a long time! <3
pippa
I believe it will stay around for a while as it really seems to have taken off for him since the Manchester concert. The song has struck a chord with people. It is likely this will outsell This Town, which is great progress for him and as a possible result will attract more interest in his album and 3rd solo single.
pippa
Officially number 7 and results in his 2nd second single out-peaking his debut.
ElectroBoy
Yeah there must've been some streaming data missing from the midweeks.

However fantastic result that he has outpeaked his debut and he now has 2 top 10 solo singles under his belt... which I think many doubted he would get after This Town's Number 9 peak.

Hopefully with Slow Hands now at 13 on streaming that it can continue to climb or, stick around the top 10 for a fair while!

Its also reached new peaks in Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and the US
