It’s a One Direction showdown. Who had the best 1D breakout solo single of 2016: Zayn Malik or Niall Horan?

Zayn burst out on the scene all the way back in January 2016 with “Pillowtalk,” while Niall released “This Town” at the end September. “Pillowtalk” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a feat 1D never even accomplished.

However, Niall didn’t even intend for “This Town” to be a major single! He released it as more of a teaser track, but it blew up thanks to the fans.

Watch my latest Clevver video breaking down “Pillowtalk” vs. “This Town” and decide for yourself who had the better debut single this year!
