“A billion streams, A billion dreams.. !”
Big Achievement for this extremely talented Irish Singer who has just celebrated his 25th birthday on September 13. (Belated Happy Birthday mate. I think the invitation got lost on the way. :D)
On September 11, 2018, the debut solo album of Niall Horan, ‘Flicker’ achieved a major milestone by surpassing more than 1.1 billion streams on Spotify in less than a year. This is a remarkable achievement for his solo career.
The 25 year old Irish singer and song writer started his career on the platform of ‘The X Factor UK, Season 7’ in 2010 and later as the member of the biggest boy band of the time, One Direction. He kicked off his solo career with the release of his lead single ‘This Town’ on September 29, 2016 and have since been topping the charts.
Later in October 2017, he released his first solo folky-pop album ‘Flicker’ which turned out to be a blockbuster hit. It was extremely loved and supported by his fans. Horan has stated earlier that his album was inspired by classic rock acts, including Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles, which he has grown up listening to. He also described the collection as having a “folk-with-pop feel to it.” Flicker is a disarming and deeply personal set whose warmth recalls ‘70s music’. The album is great combination of all flavours of music, incredible vocals, lyrics and tunes by the singer. It’s a masterpiece worth listening to, start to finish.
Currently, Niall is on his worldwide tour, ‘Flicker World Tour’ with guest artists including Julia Michaels, Maren Morris, Wild Youth band, and others, joining him for the opening acts. The tour began on March 10 this year. While this year’s tour is coming to an end, Niall has already stated that he has begin working on his next album and will be touring again in the future.
We congratulate Niall for this achievement and wish him all the good luck and success for his music career.
