Artist of the Week: Niall Horan

The One Direction member recently released his second studio album entitled 'Heartbreak Weather', which opened at No. 4 on Billboard 200 and received positive reviews.

AceShowbiz - Ever since One Direction went on an indefinite hiatus, the boys continued to prove their talent through their solo release. Among them is Niall Horan, whose debut single "This Town" was appealing to both the group's fans and others thanks to his vocals and beautiful chorus. But that wasn't the only song that helped him shine, as he recently released his second studio album "Heartbreak Weather".

Hitting the stores on March 13, the album received generally positive reviews from music critics and did well on music charts. It opened at No. 4 on Billboard 200 and launched atop the Irish Albums Chart and the U.K. Albums Chart. Meanwhile, its lead single "Nice to Meet Ya" peaked at No. 1 on U.K. Singles Chart and was certified silver in the country.

Described as a perfect mix of alternative rock and pop, Niall said of the song in an interview, "I was out one night and locked eyes with this girl. We got chatting, and she was with a group of her mates and I was with a group of my mates. It felt like every time I turned around -- like the lyric says -- she just kind of disappeared. But then over the course of the same night, in different bars around that same area, we would bump into each other."

In support of the album, the British heartthrob is set to embark on a tour called "Nice to Meet Ya Tour" this year. Its North American leg is scheduled to open on April 20 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and wrap up on May 20 at SAP Center in San Jose. He will resume the tour in Australia in September and conclude it in Mexico in December. Lewis Capaldi, Fletcher and Maisie Peters are set to open the tour.
