Niall Horan’s career is red hot right now, and he has the chart-topping position to prove it!
After releasing his debut solo album, Flicker, earlier this month, Horan has now reached the number one spot on Billboard’s 200 Chart and to say that he’s honored to have such a successful album would be an understatement.
“Wow! Thank you so much. My mind is completely blown,” Horan began a heartfelt note to his fans on Instagram after learning the news on Sunday. “An album that I wrote has gone to #1 in the United States and I cannot thank you guys enough for supporting it.”
The Irish crooner went on to talk about what a wild journey it’s been for him since leaving One Direction and forging ahead on his own musical path, and his words are so touching. We guess we shouldn’t expect anything less since his record is also beautifully written.
“It’s been a crazy couple of years for me between writing, recording and promoting this record. Today it really feels like all the hard work has paid off,” he continued. “Huge thanks to my label and my management for the constant support on everything I do. My band have been amazing traveling around on every tv show and every radio thing with me this year helping me achieve this.”
Last, but certainly not least, the “This Town” singer gave a shout out to his devoted fan base, and it’s so stinking sweet.
“The fans. You are incredible! The love I get on a daily basis is amazing,” he wrote. “Thank you and thank you again. Love, Niall.”
Thank you Niall, for the amazing music, and congrats on the number one status!
