New York [USA], October 30 (ANI): Niall Horan conquered the Billboard 200 chart with his debut solo album 'Flicker'.

Horan is the third member from the record, breaking group 'One Direction' to notch a solo No. 1 album, a feat matched only by The Beatles, reports Billboard.

The 'Slow Hands' singer follows fellow band member Harry Styles (with his self-titled debut earlier in 2017) and former group member Zayn Malik (with his debut album, Mind of Mine, in 2016).

'Flicker' was released through Capitol Records on October 20, with 152,000 equivalent copies, 128,000 of those being actual sales.

The debut album was introduced by a pair of hit singles, 'This Town,' which debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 a year ago and went on to peak at No. 20 in January and 'Slow Hands,' which topped out at No. 11 in September. (ANI)
